Selected chapters from orthopaedics

The educational contribution introduces the selected chapters from orthopaedics, namely arthroscopy, low back pain, treatment of bone tumour pain, spinal cord compression, surgery for back pain, osteoporosis, scoliosis, spine deformities, and spine trauma. The material provides the basic and essential knowledge required to pass the examination.

New trends in the therapy of bronchial asthma and COPD

Slides from lecture about new trends in the therapy of bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - clinical pharmacology. The lecture is divided into three sections - 1) basic differences between BA and COPD, 2) their classification with current therapeutic plans, and 3) new therapeutic targets in therapy of BA and COPD.



Epibulbar lesions are formed particularly in the conjunctiva and cornea. These lesions are classified into two distinct types that include pigmented and non-pigmented epibulbar lesions. The pigmented epibulbar lesions are those lesions that have pigments while the non-pigmented lesions are those that are translucent or transparent due to the absence of the pigments.

Femtosecond laser in cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser uses an infrared beam of light to precisely separate tissue through a process called photodisruption by generating pulses as short as one-quadrillionth of a second. It has wavelength of 1053 nm and is based on the technology whereby focused laser pulses divide material at the molecular level without transfer of heat or impact to the surrounding tissue.
