We report two recent cases of methanol intoxication in French patients living in Bali. These intoxications were secondary to the consumption of adulterated liquor. Both patients presented acute bilateral loss of vision a few days after methanol ingestion with no sign of recovery. The fundus showed bilateral optic atrophy that was well correlated with(More)
BACKGROUND Long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LCPUFAs) including docosahexaenoic acid and arachidonic acid are suspected to play a key role in the pathogenesis of diabetes. LCPUFAs are known to be preferentially concentrated in specific phospholipids termed as plasmalogens. This study was aimed to highlight potential changes in the metabolism of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare macular pigment optical density (MPOD) measurements obtained using the modified Heidelberg Retina Angiograph (HRA) and the Visucam 200. METHODS Healthy young subjects were included in this prospective study. MPOD was measured with the modified HRA at 0° and 0.5°, 1°, 2°, and 6° eccentricities from the fovea. The parameters(More)
PURPOSE To report the incidence and characteristics of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injections of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents or corticosteroids and to describe the clinical and bacteriologic characteristics, management, and outcome of these eyes with acute endophthalmitis in France. DESIGN Retrospective, nationwide multicenter(More)
PURPOSE To establish the prevalence of anticoagulation (vitamin K antagonists) and antiplatelet agent therapy in patients undergoing vitreoretinal surgery and to compare the outcome of peribulbar anesthesia and vitreoretinal surgery between users and nonusers. METHODS We conducted a retrospective case series study in one academic center. No changes in the(More)
Multicentric carpo-tarsal osteolysis (MCTO) with or without nephropathy is a rare osteolysis disorder beginning in early childhood and involving mainly carpal and tarsal bones. Renal disease appears later in life in the majority of cases and evolves quickly to end stage renal failure. Autosomal dominant (AD) inheritance has been demonstrated, with a high(More)
PURPOSE To determine the reliability of surgeons in estimating internal limiting membrane peeling area during epiretinal membrane surgery and to evaluate their ability to remove a predetermined internal limiting membrane surface. METHODS One senior surgeon and two junior surgeons were asked to reach a target internal limiting membrane peeling surface(More)
AIM To compare early versus delayed intravitreal betamethasone as an adjuvant in the treatment of presumed acute postoperative endophthalmitis after phacoemulsification. METHODS Patients with presumed postcataract surgery endophthalmitis were included in this prospective, randomised, multicentre study. On admission, patients received intravitreal(More)
thalmitis after resident intravitreal injection is low and similar to when supervising surgeons perform the procedure. We believe that residents should be educated during their third or fourth year of residency regarding intravitreal injections. Finally, we conclude that endophthalmitis remains an infrequent but very severe complication of intravitreal(More)
We appreciate the interest of Dr. Sanaei-Zadeh et al. [6] regarding our report on methanol poisoning: two case studies of blindness in Indonesia [1]. We thank our colleague for mentioning references we missed concerning the description of retinal and optic disc optical coherence tomography (OCT) features in methanol poisoning and read them with great(More)
