Comparison of the effect of LASIK parameters on the percent tissue altered (1-dimensional metric) versus percent volume altered (3-dimensional metric)

Can purely axial metrics such as PTA (Percentage of Tissue Altered) predict with reasonable accuracy the ratios of tissue volumes implied in LASIK surgery?

To our knowledge, the ratios between the volume of the cornea and that of the tissues involved in LASIK surgery have never been computed.

This might allow clinicians to better appreciate the respective importance of the combined volume of the LASIK flap incised plus the photoablated corrective lenticule on the corneal tissue.

This article was initiated by the fact that the metrics for evaluating the amount of tissue involved in corneal refractive surgery are limited to mono-dimensional metrics.

The term tissue for the T in the acronym PTA (Percentage of Tissue Altered) suggests that a volume, not a simple thickness of the elements, is used in the calculation. However, the cornea is a 3-dimensional (3-D) structure and its volume can be computed and expressed in volume units (mm3). The quantity of tissue cut, as in automated lamellar keratoplasty, and the quantity of tissue photoablated, as in photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) or LASIK, can also be expressed as a volume instead of a distance. However, the metrics involved in PTA calculation correspond to axial (1-dimensional [1-D]) measurements and are expressed as a distance measured along the axis of symmetry of the system and in general given in microns. The goal of our current study was to establish the importance of the volume of tissue altered in LASIK surgery for myopia and evaluate how the PTA estimated from axial measurements predicts the percentage of volume altered (PVA), a new metric computed from the estimation of implicated modified tissue volumes.

    How to get money back from Crypto scammers …….

    The threat of hackers looms large, with devastating consequences for individuals and businesses alike. The rise of cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, has attracted the attention of cybercriminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities and steal valuable assets. The alarming increase in bitcoin theft has highlighted the urgent need for robust Folkwin recovery solutions that can counter these attacks and reclaim lost funds. Hackers looking to take advantage of Bitcoin’s weaknesses are becoming a greater threat as the cryptocurrency’s value and adoption rise. The Folkwin expert recovery is a new and sophisticated method that has gradually eclipsed the traditional approaches used by hackers to target Bitcoin owners. The world of cryptocurrency has witnessed a surge in popularity, with Bitcoin emerging as the leading digital currency. However, as more individuals venture into the realm of Bitcoin ownership, the risk of hacking and cyber attacks has also increased. Hackers have employed various techniques to target Bitcoin owners, but a new method called Folkwin expert recovery is now surpassing traditional tactics, adding a twist to the ever-evolving landscape of Bitcoin hacking. Traditional methods have long been used by hackers to take advantage of Bitcoin owners and access their digital riches. Phishing attacks are a common tactic in which people are fooled into disclosing personal information about themselves. Furthermore, Bitcoin wallets have been the subject of ransomware and malware assaults that take control and demand a ransom in exchange. Another strategy tries to crack the complex private keys that safeguard Bitcoin holdings using dictionary and brute force attacks. Even though there are many benefits associated with the Folkwin expert recovery procedure, it is important to take into account its drawbacks and difficulties. To successfully combat sophisticated hacking techniques, putting this strategy into practice might need a significant infrastructure and resource investment and Folkwin expert recovery has got this all.
