    Purpose: In this study, we aimed to investigate the roles of mast cells in pterygium pathogenesis and to compare the number of mast cells in primary and recurrent pterygium. Material and Method: In this study, we evaluated 49 eyes of 49 outpatients with pterygium and the 2 eyes of 1 outpatient...

    Background: Pterygium is a common ocular surface disease characterized by fibrovascular invasion of the cornea and is sight-threatening due to astigmatism, tear film disturbance, or occlusion of the visual axis. However, the mechanisms for formation and post-surgical recurrence of pterygium are...

    We describe a proteomic approach to identify proteins which may be involved in the recurrence of pterygia. Tissues from a recurrent pterygium and from a primary pterygium were surgically resected and were analyzed by proteomics to identify proteins that were significantly up- or down-regulated....

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the contribution of ultraviolet light (UV) as a causal factor of primary and pterygium recurrence. A conjuctival autograft transplantation was a surgical method of pterygium treatment. In the first group (38 eyes) were patients with primary and recurrent...

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of different nitric oxide synthases (NOSs) in primary and recurrent pterygia and to investigate the probable role of any nitric oxide synthase on pterygium recurrence. Materials and Method: Specimens of 40 primary pterygia and 10...

    Background: To examine the immunohistochemical expression of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) and Ki-67 protein in human pterygium. Materials and methods: Tissues obtained during pterygium surgery of 15 patients who underwent the bare-sclera procedure and 10 normal conjunctivae were studied. All of...

    Aim: To determine whether amniotic membrane can be used as an alternative to conjunctival autograft after pterygium excision. Methods: 287 eyes with either primary or recurrent pterygium were included in this study. All eyes were randomised to undergo conjunctival autograft or amniotic membrane...
