PURPOSE To refine the anatomic classification and staging of ciliary body and choroidal melanomas in the TNM classification. PATIENTS AND METHODS Tumor largest basal diameter and thickness of 7,369 patients were analyzed based on registry data from five ocular oncology centers. T categories were derived empirically by dividing data into blocks(More)
The association of papilloedema (PO) with respiratory diseases and especially obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) syndrome has been emphasised in many reports. The pathophysiology could rely on the episodic increase of intracranial pressure related to apnoeic episodes during night sleep. Nevertheless, prevalence of papilloedema in patient with OSA syndrome(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess survival and identify prognostic factors for liver metastases diagnosed by systematic screening in uveal melanoma patients. METHODS Among 602 consecutive patients treated over 10 years for uveal melanoma and followed by systematic semi-annual hepatic screening (abdominal ultrasonography), 63 (10.5%) developed(More)
BACKGROUND To report the protracted 9-year survival of a patient after surgical management of multiple liver metastases from uveal melanoma. DESIGN Interventional case report. METHODS A 30-year-old patient, treated for choroidal melanoma by proton beam therapy, was semiannually followed by abdominal ultrasonography. Two years after initial treatment, a(More)
PURPOSE To report on the outcome of combined pars plana phacofragmentation, vitrectomy, and Artisan lens implantation in the management of subluxated cataracts. METHODS This prospective, interventional, nonrandomized case series included nine eyes of seven consecutive adult patients with traumatic lens subluxation. Pre- and postoperative data (complete(More)
Uveal melanoma is the most common intraocular malignancy. To study its biology, stable cell lines provide a useful tool, but these are very difficult to obtain. A stable and rapidly growing human choroidal melanoma cell line composed of pure epithelioid cells was established and maintained for at least 4 years. In vivo transplantation into BALB/cByJ nude(More)
PURPOSE To compare central macular thickness (CMT) measurement on healthy patient using 3 different OCT devices by two operators. METHODS Prospective, monocentricstudy. Right eye's central macular thickness (CMT) of 30 healthy patients has been measured three times using a time-domain (TD) OCT (Stratus OCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, Ca) and two spectral(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT) for the treatment of small uveal melanomas of the posterior pole. DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized interventional case series. METHODS Eighteen patients underwent TTT for small uveal melanomas located in the posterior pole of the eyes. Tumors were between 2.5 and 4 mm in thickness. TTT was(More)
Uveal melanoma is the most frequent intra-ocular cancer. The recent development of new chromosome-related technologies have permitted the elucidation of both the cytogenetics and the natural history of this disease. Fifty to 60% of uveal melanomas are linked to a monosomy 3, which appears as an early and determinant event in tumor progression. Tumors with(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) in patients with unexplained chronic uveitis. METHODS Retrospective review of 19 (18)F-FDG PET scans. All patients had normal chest CT. In the final analysis, the authors used criteria similar to the criteria of Abad et al. (Abad S, Meyssonier V,(More)
