PURPOSE To evaluate anterior segment modifications after penetrating keratoplasty (PKP), previous anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) removal, and Verisyse IOL (AMO) implantation over the iris or under the iris for the treatment of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy (PBK) using ultrasound biomicroscopy. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Poitiers(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term outcome of ocular surface reconstruction, including keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) and amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) with or without penetrating keratoplasty (PKP), in patients with nonambulatory vision secondary to total limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD). DESIGN Retrospective, non-comparative interventional(More)
AIM To examine the efficacy, safety, and long term outcomes of amniotic membrane transplantation for corneal surface reconstruction in cases of partial limbal stem cell deficiency. METHODS 17 eyes of 15 patients with partial limbal stem cell deficiency underwent superficial keratectomy of the conjunctivalised corneal surface followed by amniotic membrane(More)
PURPOSE To establish a phenotype-genotype correlation of various autosomal-dominant corneal dystrophies among French subjects. DESIGN Retrospective molecular genetic study and clinicopathologic correlation. PARTICIPANTS Forty-four subjects from 26 unrelated French families were included in this study, and 60 corneal buttons could be examined at the(More)
To evaluate the mechanism, clinical characteristics, management and visual outcome of ocular trauma following penetrating keratoplasty (PK). Twenty-six patients (13 men, 13 women) who suffered surgical wound dehiscence after PK because of ocular blunt trauma between 1994 and 2001 were included in this retrospective study. Graft dehiscence was managed with(More)
PURPOSE Identification of mutations in the CHST6 gene in 15 patients from 11 unrelated families affected with recessive macular corneal dystrophy (MCD). METHODS Genomic DNA was extracted from peripheral blood leukocytes of the affected patients and their healthy family members, and the mutational status of the CHST6 gene was determined for each patient by(More)
PURPOSE To present a new surgical technique combining penetrating keratoplasty and open-sky posterior iris fixation of the Artisan iris-claw intraocular lens (IOL) for treatment of pseudophakic bullous keratopathy in a case series of five patients. METHODS A graft diameter of 8.25 mm was chosen. The formerly implanted angle-supported IOL was removed. The(More)
We describe 2 women with high myopia of -12.0 and -18.0 diopters who presented with myopic macular hemorrhages 1 and 4 days, respectively, after being treated by laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). One hemorrhage was related to a pre-existing choroidal neovascularization and the other to the presence of lacquer cracks. The hemorrhages resolved but(More)
