Limited study regarding the association between thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level and phenotypes in euthyroid PCOS women. We aimed to determine whether the variation of TSH level associates with phenotypes in euthyroid PCOS patients. Methods: Cross-sectional study including 600 PCOS and 200 age, body mass index (BMI), and thyroid autoimmunity-matched Chinese women from Renji hospital, Shanghai Jiaotong university during January 2010 and August 2018. The anthropometric and serum biochemical parameters related to TSH, thyroid autoimmunity, lipid profiles, and sex steroids wer...

ConclusionNo significant difference was found in the clinical manifestations, mortality, and complication between children and adults but children tended to have lesser chance of using alternative antibiotics, methylprednisolone and inhaled NO. The chance of associated cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease was also significantly lower in children.

In this work, the four optimum azimuthal angles are determined for a full-Stokes scanning polarimeter comprising a rectangular prism, quarter-wave plate, and four linear polarizers. The determinant and condition numbers of the measurement matrix are used as objective functions in an optimization ...

CONCLUSION: Increasing on-time percent does not improve efficiency under torsional long-pulse US. There is no significant change in chatter with increasing on-time percent. Increasing power increases efficiency despite chatter increase. Long-pulse US does not appear to influence torsional action in a clinically meaningful way. PMID: 31109482 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To review visual and anatomic outcomes after cataract surgery with complications in a teaching institution. METHODS: Consecutive case series. A chart review was conducted of patients who underwent phacoemulsification with intraoperative or postoperative complications, performed by ophthalmology residents under direct supervision of experienced ophthalmology attending physicians. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT parameters, and postoperative treatments were reviewed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. RESULTS: One hundred thirty-three eyes were analyzed. Mean BCVA was 50...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the use of home care services in those with and without visual impairment in Canada. DESIGN: Population-based cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: Participants came from the baseline examination of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging Comprehensive Cohort. Inclusion criteria included age between 45 and 85 years, community dwelling, and living near one of the 11 data collection sites across 7 Canadian provinces. People were excluded if they were in an institution, were living on a First Nations reserve, were full-time members of the Canadian Armed Forces, did not speak...

CONCLUSION: The FFCEs generated at the hospital service corridor by an urban community DR screening teleophthalmology project did not impact negatively on its services; moreover, the service corridor was exempted from providing FFCEs to 87.4% of the diabetic population it serves. This study may help provide cost-efficiency indications for a screening protocol that would include OCT availability at the imaging site and measure its positive effects. While DR of which DME was the main cause of referral for FFCE, incidental significant sight-threatening findings were significant and approached DR as a cause of referral; this s...

CONCLUSIONS: The minimum rim width and retinal nerve fibre layer thickness measurements using the Anatomic Positioning System protocol had overall excellent reproducibility and diagnostic performance. Using this protocol and the novel minimum rim width parameter may be useful in more accurate diagnosis and follow-up of patients with glaucoma. PMID: 31109473 [PubMed - in process]

This article attempts to clarify the optimal methodology for BT and the types of patients who can benefit most from BT. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of cases who received BT with the macular integrity assessment (MAIA) microperimetre. Outcome measures selected for analysis were visual acuity, PRL location, fixation stability, fixation pattern orientation, reading acuity, critical print size, and reading speed. RESULTS: Out of 30 cases who received BT, only those with age-related macular degeneration and visual acuity of logMAR 0.8 (20/126) or poorer showed a visual acuity gain (statistically significan...
