PURPOSE To report cases of intraocular inflammation after intracameral injection of a very high dose of cefuroxime at the end of uneventful cataract surgery. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Bordeaux University Hospital, Bordeaux, France. DESIGN Case series. METHODS Patients were followed on an outpatient basis and were examined postoperatively at(More)
BACKGROUND Several genes implicated in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism have been reported to be associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Furthermore, HDL transport the two carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are highly suspected to play a key-role in the protection against AMD. The objective is to confirm the associations of(More)
BACKGROUND Lipid metabolism and particularly high-density lipoprotein (HDL) may be involved in the pathogenic mechanism of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, conflicting results have been reported in the associations of AMD with plasma HDL and other lipids, which may be confounded by the recently reported associations of AMD with HDL-related(More)
PURPOSE To explore the association of AMD with long-term average blood pressure (BP) parameters, including pulse pressure (PP). METHODS The ALIENOR study is a population-based study on age-related eye diseases in 963 residents of Bordeaux, France, aged 73 years or older. AMD was graded from nonmydriatic color retinal photographs, in three exclusive(More)
High dietary intakes of n3 (ω3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and fish have been consistently associated with a decreased risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). We assessed the associations of late AMD with plasma n3 PUFA, a nutritional biomarker of n3 PUFA status. The Antioxydants Lipides Essentiels Nutrition et Maladies Occulaires (Alienor)(More)
Although animal models consistently indicate that gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) synaptic function (GABA levels, synthesis, uptake and/or receptors) is decreased in seizure states, there is little evidence to date in support of such a hypothesis for human epilepsy. This chapter presents the results of an in-depth study of the activity of the(More)
PURPOSE To assess the associations of complement factor H (CFH) Y402H polymorphism and smoking with specific features of early AMD (type, location, and area). METHODS The ALIENOR study is a population-based study of age-related eye diseases in 963 residents of Bordeaux (France), aged 73 years or more. AMD features were graded from nonmydriatic color(More)
BACKGROUND Olive oil provides a mixture of lipids and antioxidant nutrients which may help preventing age-related diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, little is known about the associations between olive oil consumption and the risk of AMD. OBJECTIVE To examine associations between olive oil use and AMD prevalence in elderly(More)
PURPOSE To study and classify retinal lesions in patients with birdshot disease using wide-field autofluorescence imaging and correlate them according to patients' visual status. METHODS A multicentre study was carried out on 76 eyes of 39 patients with birdshot disease, analysing colour images and under autofluorescence using the wide-field Optomap(®)(More)
CONTEXT Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis usually affects severely immunosuppressed individuals. However, some exceptional and isolated cases of CMV retinitis have been described in immunocompetent patients. METHODS We report two cases of non-immunodeficient patients seen in our institution over a period of 6 months, who presented with CMV retinitis a few(More)
