BACKGROUND : In donor cornea transplantation a decontamination step is required in order to reduce the cornea contamination. At the Eye Bank of Liege, Belgium, the decontamination is performed with 5% iodopovidone solution quick wash before dissection. AIMS: To evaluate the use of decontamination solution BASE.128 (AL.CHI.MI.A. S.r.l.) for decontamination of the whole donor eye globe, before cornea recovery, at the Ophthalmic Tissue Bank of Liege University Hospital. METHODS : Human donor eye globes, unsuitable for transplantation, were recovered and transported in physiological solution. All corneas were evaluated according to SOP of the Eye Bank (Endothelial cell density (ECD), slit lamp evaluation (SL), central corneal thickness (CCT)). A microbiological test was performed on physiological transportation medium using Bact/Alert for 7 days, and a corneal swab was taken. Eye globes were immersed in BASE.128, an antibiotic cocktail containing vancomycin, gentamicin, cefotaxime, and amphotericin B deoxycholate. After decontamination phase, a microbiological and corneal swab test were repeated. Cornea was dissected and transferred in cold storage medium (EUSOL-C, AL.CHI.MI.A. S.r.l.). ECD and CCT were evaluated again. Cornea was stored for 14 days at 4°C. After 14 days of storage, ECD and CCT were determined. At day 14, a microbiological corneal swab test were repeated. RESULTS: Whole globes were initially contaminated. After decontamination, all the microbiological tests resulted negative. Corneal evaluation parameters including ECD and CCT remained unvaried according to expected values. CONCLUSIONS : Decontamination of whole donor eye globe with BASE.128 allowed total elimination of cornea contamination without altering corneal quality. [less ▲]

L'osteo-odonto-keratoprothese est une procedure chirurgicale complexe cherchant à restaurer la vision dans des situations de cécité d'origine cornéenne habituellement irrémédiables telles que brûlures chimiques, syndromes de Lyell et de Stevens-johnson, pemphigoïdes, trachome, multiples rejets de greffes cornéennes... Elle consiste en 2 ou 3 étapes longues et fastidieuses nécessaires à implanter au travers de la cornée opaque, une optique incluse dans une dent (dent dans l'oeil). La dent est prélevée dans sa totalité, avec son ligament et son os alvéolaire. Une lamine tissulaire est ensuite affinée et perforée afin de permettre le passage d'une optique en PMMA. La lamine ainsi préparée est mise en nourrice dans la joue pour plusieurs mois, pour être enfin implantée sur l'oeil, recouverte d'une greffe de muqueuse nourricière et protectrice. Cette fabuleuse technique chirurgicale a été imaginée par le Professeur Strampelli au début des années 60. Le Professeur Giancarlo Falcinelli, notre mentor, a consacré sa carrière à l'améliorer. Nous lui rendons aujourd'hui hommage. [less ▲]

Limbal graft harvesting might sometimes not be possible in pterygium surgery (previous surgeries, burns, conjunctival pathology, filtering bleb...). The use of an amniotic membrane might be an alternative to a thicker labial mucosa graft. Fibrin glue, as in conjunctival grafting, permits a surgery without stitches which is a help to the surgeon and a relief to the patient. [less ▲]

Merkel cell carcinoma is a neuroendocrine tumor of the skin, originating from neuroendocrine cells. A case report of Merkel cell carcinoma, discovered in a 77-Year-old woman, was diagnosed and confirmed on a biopsy. Diagnostic and therapeutic orientations of this unusual but malignant tumor are described. [less ▲]

CLINICAL REPORT: A clinical report of a contact lenses wearer with Acanthamoeba keratitis pointed out the diagnosis problem. The medical treatment is needed previously to any surgery. Finally the patient underwent enucleation. DISCUSSION: The authors are considering the microbiological aspects and laboratory techniques are described. CONCLUSION: For this very severe but hopefully rare pathology, the sooner the treatment the best. A therapeutic approach is described. [less ▲]

Les auteurs présentent un cas d'ulcère cornéen à Exophiala dermatitidis. Ce cas permet d'envisager la classification des mycoses cornéennes ainsi que leur fréquences. L'histoire clinique et l'aspect biomicroscopique permettent de mettre en évidence les critères diagnostiques des infections mycotiques. L'intérêt et la techique des prélèvements seront discutés. l'analyse anatomopathologique après greffe de cornée confirme le diagnostic et nous rappelle la place essentielle de cet examen trop souvent négligé. L'attitude thérapeutique tant médicale que chirurgicale sera discutée. [less ▲]
