Prolonged immobilization, biochemical factors and hemodynamic instability have been discussed as factors in the pathogenesis of this devastating complication. Perioperative visual loss in four consecutive patients, all(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the relationship between the peripapillary metabolic alterations [retinal vessel Oximetry (RO)] and the structural findings [retinal vessel diameter and retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFL)] in patients with inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD). METHODS Patients with IRD [24 patients with rod-cone dystrophy (RCD), 15 patients with(More)
Background We investigated the relationship between prominent optic disc (POD) and inherited retinal dystrophy (IRD). Patients and Methods A cross-sectional consecutive study was performed in 10 children and 11 adults of 7 non-related families. We performed clinical phenotyping, including a detailed examination, fundus autofluorescence, and colour fundus(More)
Thirteen years ago, Motegi and colleagues (J Med Genet 1987;24:696-697) summarized the specific facial phenotype of six Japanese retinoblastoma patients with interstitial 13q14 deletions. Among a series of 228 propositi with retinoblastoma referred to the Lausanne Retinoblastoma Clinic for treatment and genetic counseling between 1986 and 1997, 13 (5.7%)(More)
