L’odontologie au service de la vue : étude épidémiologique concernant la technique OOKP au niveau de Bordeaux et la CUB

Abstract : Corneal blindness represents a real public health issue, especially regarding very severe cases for which therapeutic solutions are often absent. Nevertheless, a therapeutic alternative, osteo-odonto-keratoprosthesis (OOKP), originally described in Italy in 1963 by Strampelli and subsequently modified by Falcinelli, is the most reliable technique identified in the field of keratoprostheses. It relies on the use of an autologous tooth-bone complex to form a biological entity to firmly hold a polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) cylinder which acts as an artificial cornea to transmit an image to the retina. This technique of last resort represents the last chance therapy allowing patients to recover a compatible vision with a better quality of life. It is used by very few teams around the world, including one in France, located in Marseille, with a very good success rate. However, very few articles describe in an exhaustive manner the im! plemented methodology and the role of the dental organ is evoked only in a fragmentary way. As part of this thesis, a descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted, through the use of a questionnaire, to describe the current state of knowledge regarding this technique and to evaluate its popularity and its use by surgeons from the Bordeaux region.
