PURPOSE Total bilateral corneal limbal epithelial stem cell deficiency (LSCD) cannot be treated with the surgical transplantation of autologous limbus or cultured autologous limbal epithelium. Transplantation of allogenic limbal epithelium is possible but requires immunosuppressive treatments. Cultured autologous oral mucosal epithelial cell sheet (CAOMECS)(More)
PURPOSE The combination of a shortage of cornea grafts in France and a national average contamination rate of 9% to 10%, has led us to search for the origins of this contamination. The objective of our study was to reduce the number of unusable grafts resulting from contamination of corneas in organ culture. METHODS An external audit was carried out by an(More)
PURPOSE To assess the medium-term efficacy and safety of treating nucleus and intraocular lens (IOL) dislocation with pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) combined with iris-claw IOL implantation. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, University of Lyon 1 Claude Bernard, Lyon, France. DESIGN Retrospective case series. METHODS The study comprised consecutive(More)
PURPOSE To report the clinical presentation and outcome of delayed-onset endophthalmitis caused by Moraxella species and to evaluate the eubacterial polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in aqueous humor samples for the microbiologic diagnosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seven patients with bleb-related delayed onset-endophthalmitis caused by Moraxella were included(More)
As bacterial adhesion to contact lenses may contribute to the pathogenesis of keratitis, the aim of our study was to investigate in vitro adhesion of clinically relevant bacteria to conventional hydrogel (standard HEMA) and silicone-hydrogel contact lenses using a bioluminescent ATP assay. Four types of unworn contact lenses (Etafilcon A, Galyfilcon A,(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the influence of the 3-dimensional collagen-glycosaminogycan-chitosan (CGC 3D) scaffold, epithelialization, and the addition of tetracycline hydrochloride on the ultrastructural organization, measured by the diameter and spacing of newly synthesized collagen I fibrils. METHODS Little is known about the role of interactions between(More)
Purtscher retinopathy is a retinal vasculopathy most commonly caused by head or chest trauma. The most frequent signs include white ischemic infarcts (cotton-wool spots) and retinal hemorrhages (intraretinal, preretinal, or flame). The signs of ischemic vasculopathy predominate in the interpapillomacular zone. We report a case of a 31-year-old woman with(More)
Tissue engineered human oral mucosa has the potential to be applied to the closure of surgical wounds after tissue deficits due to facial trauma, malignant lesion surgery or preposthetic procedure. It can also be used to elucidate the biology and pathology of oral mucosa and as a model alternative to animals for safety testing of oral care products. Using(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the current causes and outcomes of open eye injuries in children. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed the hospital records of 57 patients under 14 years of age who were treated for open globe injuries at Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon, France, between January 1999 and December 2003.
