Assessing Early Stage Open-Angle Glaucoma in Patients by Isolated-Check Visual Evoked Potential Xiang Fan1,2, Lingling Wu1,2, Aihua Ding1,2 1Department of Ophthalmology, Peking University Third Hospital, 2Beijing Key Laboratory of Restoration of Damaged Ocular Nerve, Peking University Third Hospital The isolated-check visual evoked potential (icVEP) method is implemented here to assess the magnocellular ON pathway that is initially damaged in glaucoma. The study shows standard operative procedures using icVEP to obtain reliable results. It is proved to serve as a useful objective diagnosing technology for the early detection of glaucoma.
Targeting Gray Rami Communicantes in Selective Chemical Lumbar Sympathectomy Wen-Hui Wang1, Long Zhang2,3, Guo-Xiang Dong2, Jun Zhao2, Xuan Li2,3 1Department of Dermatology, Peking University Third Hospital, 2Department of Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery, Peking University Third Hospital, 3Wound Healing Center, Peking University Third Hospital We present a protocol for selective chemical lumbar sympathectomy (CLS), which inactivates only gray rami communicantes and not the sympathetic trunk. Selective CLS can help achieve therapeutic efficacy in vasodilation, sweat reduction, and pain relief that are comparable to conventional CLS, and serious complications, particularly ureteropelvic damages, can be reduced.
