PURPOSE To identify the clinical and anatomic characteristics of filtering blebs after glaucoma surgery with a new biodegradable collagen implant, Ologen, using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) and Visante anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS The authors conducted a prospective interventional case series in 15 eyes with(More)
Intravenous immunoglobulins are used in the treatment of different autoimmune diseases. Recent trials suggest their efficacy in relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. We report the results of an efficacy and safety trial using monthly intravenous injections of immunoglobulins for patients with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. Eighteen patients in(More)
The development of a Distributed Information System (DIS) can lead to critical bottlenecks because of the underlying architecture, which is becoming more and more complex. Todays applications are both object-oriented and based on a new type of three-tiered client/server architecture. In this context, the capabilities of a DIS can be drastically reduced if(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Epidural catheters placed for analgesia during labor and delivery can be reused in the postpartum period for postpartum tubal ligation anesthesia. This study examined the success rate of such reactivation of epidural catheters. METHODS We studied all patients who had received an epidural anesthetic for labor and delivery and who(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the incidence, characteristics and risk factors for rhegmatogenous complications of transconjunctival sutureless 23-gauge vitrectomy (TSV) in macular surgery. The results were correlated with those reported in the literature. METHODS Multicentric retrospective study of a cohort of patients undergoing macular surgery by 23-gauge TSV(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the results of limited macular translocation (MT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in subfoveal choroidal neovascularization due to degenerative myopia, with a minimum follow-up of 12 months. METHODS Retrospective review of 55 consecutive patients: 31 eyes were treated using PDT and 24 were operated on with the limited macular(More)
UNLABELLED Intravitreal injections (IVT) of aflibercept are indicated in France for the treatment of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD). An induction phase consisting of 3 monthly IVTs followed by follow-up visits and IVTs every other month during the first year is recommended. However, it may be necessary to adjust this schedule for some(More)
Main retinal complications of cataract extraction are retinal detachment and cystoid macular edema. The incidence of retinal detachment after ex traction is 1 %, and may increase after Nd: YAG laser capsulotomy to 4 %. Cystoid macular edema in aphakic or pseudophakic patients is unusually transient, with a decrease of visual acuity in about 3 % of cases; a(More)
