Comparison of two sedation protocols for short electroretinography in cats
Objectives: The objectives were to compare two different sedative combinations, xylazine–ketamine and dexmedetomidine–ketamine, for the short electroretinography (ERG) protocol and their impact on sedative effect, reversal ...
Methylene Blue Prevents Retinal Damage Caused by Perinatal Asphyxia in the Rat
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2020-06)
Perinatal asphyxia (PA) is responsible for a large proportion of neonatal deaths and numerous neurological sequelae, including visual dysfunction and blindness. In PA, the retina is exposed to ischemia/reoxygenation, which ...
Effects of wavelets transcorneal-stimulation on low vision patients with central retinal artery occlusion CRAO
(Telecommunications and Radio Engineering, 2010)
Visual defects associated with vigabatrin: a study of epileptic argentine patientsDéficits visuels associés au vigabatrin: étude de patients argentins
(Cambridge University Press, 2014-12)
Objective: The aim of the present study was to assess visual alterations in a population of Argentine patients treated with the antiepileptic drug vigabatrin. Methods: Twenty patients receiving vigabatrin and 15 patients ...
Bacterial lipopolysaccharide protects the retina from light-induced damage
Light-induced damage is a widely used model to study retinal degeneration. We examined whether bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) protects the retina against light-induced injury. One day before intense light exposure for ...
The “Use It or Lose It” Dogma in the Retina: Visual Stimulation Promotes Protection Against Retinal Ischemia
(Humana Press, 2019-08)
Enriched environment (EE) protects the retina from adult rats against ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury; however, how the components of EE contribute to the recovery after retinal ischemic damage remains unclear. We analyzed ...
Involvement of glutamate in retinal protection against ischemia/reperfusion damage induced by post-conditioning.
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2009-12)
Retinal ischemia could provoke blindness and there is no effective treatment against retinal ischemic damage. Brief intermittent ischemia applied during the onset of reperfusion (i.e., postconditioning) protects the retina ...
Pre-ischemic enriched environment increases retinal resilience to acute ischemic damage in adult rats
(Academic Press Ltd - Elsevier Science Ltd, 2019-01)
Retinal ischemia is a condition associated with several degenerative diseases leading to visual impairment and blindness worldwide. Currently, there is no highly effective therapy for ischemic retinopathies. This study was ...
Hypothermic shock applied after perinatal asphyxia prevents retinal damage in rats
(Frontiers Media, 2021-04)
Perinatal asphyxia (PA) can cause retinopathy and different degrees of visual loss, including total blindness. In a rat model of PA, we have previously shown a protective effect of hypothermia on the retina when applied ...
