AIMS To evaluate the clinical features as well as the visual and anatomical outcome in eyes with magnetic posterior segment foreign bodies, to identify prognostic factors after removal using an electromagnet. METHODS The records of 40 patients with posterior segment foreign bodies were retrospectively reviewed for 6 years (1989-94). Post-traumatic(More)
We report a rare case of a 46-year-old man presenting with a luxation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) with the capsular bag after ocular contusion. Preoperative axial length was 36.58 mm. After trauma, pars plana extraction of the dislocated IOL inside the capsular bag was performed using a forceps. Capsular fibrosis had probably weakened the(More)
PURPOSE Helicobacter pylori has been implicated in focal occlusive arterial diseases in young people. Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) and diffuse retinal epitheliopathy (DRE) being suspected vascular occlusive diseases of choriocapillaris, the purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of H. pylori infection in patients with long-lasting(More)
PURPOSE To identify the prognostic factors of poor visual outcome (visual acuity < or =6/240) in eyes with intraocular foreign bodies. METHODS The records of 95 consecutive patients were retrospectively reviewed for 6 years (1990-1995). All eyes underwent a primary surgical repair and foreign-body removal (electromagnet or vitrectomy). The mean follow-up(More)
· Background: It has been previously described that Wagner disease is linked to chromosome 5q13-q14. This study was carried out to describe the ophthalmological aspects and report the results of genetic linkage analysis in a large pedigree affected by Wagner disease. · Methods: Fourty members of one same family agreed to be examined. · Results: Twenty(More)
The authors describe a case of intraocular cysticercosis discovered in the ophthalmology department ef Edouard Herriot Hospital. With no biological signs, the diagnosis was made after vitrectomy because the visit was late in the course of the disorder, the patient lived in the mountains, and he had failed to mention a trip to the West Indies 3 months(More)
We report a case of bilateral asymptomatic rebeosis iridis related to a bilateral obstruction of the carotid arteries. The iridocorneal angles were closed by a neovascular membrane and intraocular pressures were normal within both eyes (normotensive neovascular glaucoma). After left carotid endarterectomy, the increased perfusion of the ciliary body and the(More)
