(n.) The cover of the eye; that portion of movable skin with which an animal covers or uncovers the eyeball at pleasure.
(1) Surface EMGs at rest and at voluntary eyelid opening after eyelid closing were investigated.
(2) The goat isolates were obtained from animals with various disease conditions including respiratory tract disorders, vulvovaginitis, and wart-like lesions on the eyelid.
(3) One patient with the disease localised to the eyelid had normal EMG responses when monitored on the hand with ulnar nerve stimulation.
(4) The "lazy-T" technique consists of a surgical horizontal and vertical shortening of the involved portion of the lower eyelid.
(5) 200 patients who were diagnosed to have bacterial conjuntivitis (111 cases), corneal ulcers (39 cases), dacryocystitis (34 cases) or infections of the eyelids (16 cases) at the ophthalmology department of our university were taken as the patient group and there were 100 normal people in the control group.
(6) Paralytic lagophthalmos was corrected using gold weights inserted into the upper eyelid.
(7) A simplified procedure is described whereby tissue is removed via a posterior eyelid approach so that the eyelid may be tightened both horizontally and vertically, thus inverting the punctum and fixating it in the lacrimal lake.
(8) Because of the extensive soft-tissue and osseous involvement, all patients required composite resection of the orbit, the ethmoidal sinus, the orbital contents, and the soft tissue of the eyelids, brow, and temporal region.
(9) The authors report a new technique for the reconstruction of upper eyelid full thickness tissue losses in preserving the inferior edge.
(10) A 47-year-old white man in apparent good health had diplopia and swelling of the right upper eyelid.
(11) Inoculation into mouse eyelids produced intraocular, orbital, and lethal systemic chronic progressive inflammatory disease.
(12) Double composite grafting is a technique used in the repair of large (greater than 75%) eyelid defects due to tumor resection, trauma, or congenital coloboma.
(13) Some birds were subjected to unilateral eyelid-suture, a protocol which usually induces axial lengthening and corneal bulging.
(14) Several procedures have been developed to restore closure of the paralyzed upper eyelid (implantation of gold weights or open wire springs) or to correct lower lid lagophthalmos and ectropion (lower lid tightening with a Bick procedure or insertion of a closed eyelid spring).
(15) We hypothesize that the lower overnight swelling with the silicone lenses is a result of reduced resistance to oxygen flow from the eyelid capillaries to the corneal epithelial cells possibly due to decreased tear film thickness.
(16) The pinch technique has been found to be useful in repairing cosmetic eyelid deformities.
(17) The administration of these drugs was followed within 2-3 minutes by oedema of the eyelids and epiglottis, reduced peripheral circulation and central cyanosis.
(18) The eyelids not only protect the ocular globe, but also keep it wet and transparent.
(19) There is evidence that these artifacts may be the result of a combination of eyelid electrical activity and resistance effects.
(20) Within 2 months following birth the infants had facial acne and edema, swelling of the eyelids, loss of facial hair including eyelashes, and hyperpigmentation of the skin.
(n.) See Sty, a boil.
(1) Clegg rejected the suggestion that the riots were the fulfilment of his prediction, made prior to the election, that there would be Greek-stye riots over the Tory cuts plans.
(2) Surgical trauma preceded the development of two lesions in one patient and a second patient presented with a positive history of recurrent styes, a chalazion, and a questionable history of trauma to the lid.
