There are about 25 clinical studies being (or have been) conducted in Kosovo. The country of the clinical trial is determined by the location of where the clinical research is being studied. Most studies are often held in multiple locations & countries.
The aim of this study is the evaluation of corneal transparency and improvement of visual acuity in patients with herpetic stromal keratitis.
Football is the most popular sport in the world, with 260 million male and female active participants, including ~113,000 FIFA registered professional players. Playing football is fun and can provide many health benefits, however, it also presents a high injury risk. Studies on elite and non-elite footballers have reported similar injury rates in both genders. The most common football-related injuries are the knee and ankle ligament and thigh muscle strains, Over the past two decades, significant advancement has been made in the field of injury prevention in football. There are used trials to prevent specific injuries, as ankle sprain, ACL injuries, hamstring strains, etc. On the other hand, there are created programs designed to prevent a wider spectrum of injuries like FIFA11+. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the effect of a new injury prevention program on the overall injury incidence in young football players.
Adenoviral keratitis(caused by adenovirus) is one of the most frequently diagnosed eye diseases. Most of these infections have symptoms like (Ocular itchiness and irritation, chemosis (conjunctival edema),photophobia, epiphora, foreign body sensation, epithelial keratitis etc.Adenoviral subepithelial infiltration is one of the most difficult complication to treat. Our purpose is to evaluate corneal transparency, recurrence, and visual acuity in patients with adenoviral subepithelial infiltration by first removing the infiltrative stroma with a smile and implanting the same volume of fresh lenticule in the prepared stromal pocket.
Presbyopia is physiological insufficiency of accommodation associated with the aging of the eye that results in progressively worsening ability to focus clearly on close objects.Though presbyopia is a normal change in our eyes as we age, it often is a significant and emotional event because it's a sign of aging that's impossible to ignore and difficult to hide. This defect is usually corrected by using glasses with bifocal power of suitable focal lengths. But some patients don't want to use glasses for correction. In our study purpose is to show that near vision improves and patient satisfaction increases by preparing an intrastromal pocket for emmetropic patients with near vision problems using the SMILE module.
The aim of the study is to present the effect of implanting intrastromal fresh corneal lenticule by SMILE surgery as a new method-approach to correct the corneal shape on purpose to reduce irregular astigmatism and increasing visual acuity after penetrating keratoplasty.
The cemented femoral stem have impact on increase on systemic parameters. Evaluation of the level of histamine, C-reactive protein (CRP) and leukocytes formula, IL1b, TNF alpha, IL6 and the reflection of changes of these parameters in the intra-operative course of hip replacement.
Stroma is a fibrous, tough, transparent and the thickest layer of the corneae. The stroma is composed of organised collagen, which maintains transparency. Keratocytes are located between the lamella collagen fibers and secrete an extracellular matrix, which includes collagen, proteoglycan, crystalline proteins to maintain corneal transparency.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery for correction of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Yet approximately 30% of operated patients have symptoms like glare, halos, dry eyes and especially residual hypermetrop refractive errors. Residual hypermetrop refractive errors are difficult to treat surgically, the current treatment is Refractive Lens Implantation - risks are similar to those of cataract surgery (endophthalmitis, loss of accommodation, etc.)
Successful treatment of residual refraction 6 months after IOL Implantation with Relex-Smile.
The aim of this study is to assess visual and refractive outcomes after laser vision correction (LVC) - ReLex Smile to correct residual myopic refraction after 6 months of pseudophakic (IOL) implantation. Before SMILE YAG-Laser capsulotomy should be performed on all patients, regardless of posterior capsule ossification, in pseudophakic patients with residual refraction. When the YAG Laser is applied after the SMILE, there will be a diopter change.
