  • Biocompatibility and functionality of a tissue-engineered living corneal stroma transplanted in the feline eye 

    Boulze Pankert, Marie; Goyer, Benjamin; Zaguia, Fatma; Bareille, Myriam; Perron, Marie-Claude; Liu, Xinling; Cameron, J. Douglas; Proulx, Stephanie; Brunette, Isabelle (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2014)
    PURPOSE. Corneal tissue shortage has become a major concern worldwide, which has motivated the search for alternative solutions to eye bank human eyes for corneal transplantation. Minimally invasive lamellar transplantation and tissue engineering ...
  • Comparison of parametric methods for modeling corneal surfaces 

    Bouazizi, Hala; Brunette, Isabelle; Meunier, Jean (Society of photo-optical instrumentation engineers, 2017-02-24)
    Corneal topography is a medical imaging technique to get the 3D shape of the cornea as a set of 3D points of its anterior and posterior surfaces. From these data, topographic maps can be derived to assist the ophthalmologist in the diagnosis of disorders. ...
  • Comparison of quasi-spherical surfaces : application to corneal biometry 

    Polette, Arnaud; Mari, Jean-Luc; Brunette, Isabelle; Meunier, Jean (Institution of Engineering and Technology, 2016)
    In this study, the authors present two new techniques with their own particular advantages dedicated to the authentication of a person based on the three-dimensional geometry of the cornea. A device known as corneal topographer is used for capturing ...
  • Cornea regeneration as an alternative to human donor transplantation 

    Brunette, Isabelle; Alarcon, Emilio I.; Griffith, May (London Touch Briefings, 2015)
    There is a need for an alternative to human donor corneas as the availability of good-quality tissues remains limited, with this situation potentially worsening as the population in many countries is progressively ageing. There have been numerous ...
  • Preventing corneal calcification associated with xylazine for longitudinal optical coherence tomography in young rodents 

    Zhou, Tianwei Ellen; Sayah, Diane N.; Noueihed, Baraa; Mazzaferri, Javier; Costantino, Santiago; Brunette, Isabelle; Chemtob, Sylvain (Association for research in vision and ophthalmology, 2017-01)
    PURPOSE. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is widely used in clinical ophthalmology and recently gained popularity in laboratory research involving small rodents. Its noninvasive nature allows repeated measurements, thereby ...
  • Restoration of mitochondrial integrity, telomere length, and sensitivity to oxidation by in vitro culture of Fuchs’ endothelial corneal dystrophy cells 

    Gendron, Sébastien P.; Thériault, Mathieu; Proulx, Stéphanie; Brunette, Isabelle; Rochette, Patrick J. (Association for research in vision and ophthalmology, 2016)
    PURPOSE. Fuchs’ endothelial corneal dystrophy (FECD), a degenerative disease of the corneal endothelium that leads to vision loss, is a leading cause of corneal transplantation. The cause of this disease is still unknown, but the implication of ...
