#1
Thomas Wecker, Alexandra Anton, Matthias Neuburger, Jens F Jordan, Christian van Oterendorp
BACKGROUND: Trabeculotomy with the Trabectome® is an effective surgical procedure to lower intraocular pressure (IOP). However, in some patients it does not lead to a significant IOP reduction despite a gonioscopically well visible opening of Schlemm's canal. This study investigated whether the size of the trabeculotomy opening and other parameters, including anterior chamber depth (ACD) are related to IOP reduction. METHODS: Retrospective observational case series with 93 eyes of 93 patients who underwent Trabectome surgery...

PURPOSE: To evaluate corneal innervation and inflammatory cell infiltration using in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) and to correlate these findings with subjective symptoms of dry eye, as measured by the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) in patients with non-Sjögren's (NSDE) and Sjögren's syndrome dry eyes (SSDE). METHODS: Central corneal images were prospectively captured from 10 age-matched healthy control eyes, 24 eyes with clinically diagnosed NSDE and 44 eyes with clinically diagnosed SSDE, using IVCM (HRT III RCM)...

REVIEW
Paolo Lanzetta, Anat Loewenstein
BACKGROUND: Intravitreal anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy is now considered the gold standard for the treatment of various retinal disorders. As therapy has evolved, so too have the treatment regimens employed by physicians in clinical practice; however, visual outcomes observed in the real world have typically not reflected those reported in clinical trials. Possible reasons for this include a lack of consensus on treatment regimens and a lack of clarity about what the aims of treatment should be...

PURPOSE: To present retinal pigmentary changes mimicking retinitis pigmentosa (RP) as a finding of advanced uveitis. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed charts of patients without a family history of inherited retinal degenerations who presented with retinal pigment changes and signs of past or present intraocular inflammation. Comprehensive eye examination including best-corrected visual acuity, slit-lamp examination and dilated fundus examination was performed on all patients in addition to color fundus photography, optical coherence tomography, fluorescein angiography (FA), and full-field electroretinogram testing...

PURPOSE: Ischemia-associated retinal degeneration is one of the leading causes of vision loss, and to date, there are no effective treatment options. We hypothesized that delayed injection of bone-marrow stem cells (BMSCs) 24 h after the onset of ischemia could effectively rescue ischemic retina from its consequences, including apoptosis, inflammation, and increased vascular permeability, thereby preventing retinal cell loss. METHODS: Retinal ischemia was induced in adult Wistar rats by increasing intraocular pressure (IOP) to 130-135 mmHg for 55 min...

BACKGROUND: The literature is scant on the state of the ciliary body, its role in the development of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) complicated by choroidal detachment (CD), and on ciliary body changes following the treatment aimed at resolving concomitant inflammation and choroidal attachment. This study assesses the anatomical position and thickness of the ciliary body and investigates the ciliary body changes after anti-inflammatory pre-vitrectomy treatment in RRD complicated by CD...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the long-term effectiveness and safety of ranibizumab 0.5 mg in patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) in a real-world setting. METHODS: A descriptive, observational, multicenter study in a retrospective and prospective cohort was conducted in France that included patients who had received at least one injection of ranibizumab 0.5 mg during the period October 2011 to October 2014, for CNV secondary to PXE...

PURPOSE: To propose a new algorithm of blood vessel segmentation based on regional and Hessian features for image analysis in retinal abnormality diagnosis. METHODS: Firstly, color fundus images from the publicly available database DRIVE were converted from RGB to grayscale. To enhance the contrast of the dark objects (blood vessels) against the background, the dot product of the grayscale image with itself was generated. To rectify the variation in contrast, we used a 5 × 5 window filter on each pixel...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of eye-tracking (ET) technology on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) image quality and manifestation of motion artifacts in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS: In a prospective trial, multimodal retinal imaging including OCT-A was performed in 30 patients (78.97 ± 9.7 years) affected by different stages of AMD. Central 3 × 3 mm(2) OCT-A imaging was performed four times consecutively in each patient, twice with active, and twice with inactive ET...

PURPOSE: To assess the feasibility of swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) for clinical follow-up of patients with birdshot chorioretinopathy (BC). METHODS: Prospective longitudinal, observational, 12-month case-control study in a tertiary care center. The study population included 12 patients (24 eyes) diagnosed with BC and 21 age- and sex-matched healthy controls (42 eyes). The macular areas in both affected and healthy eyes were prospectively analyzed with SS-OCT at 1050 nm, using 2D 12...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) measurements of ocular microcirculation in normal and open-angle glaucoma (OAG) subjects. METHODS: This study included 18 eyes of 18 OAG patients and ten eyes of ten age-matched healthy controls. LSFG was used to measure mean blur rate (MBR) in the optic nerve head (ONH) vessel area (MV) and tissue area (MT)...

PURPOSE: Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetically heterogeneous inherited retinal dystrophy. To date, over 80 genes have been implicated in RP. However, the disease demonstrates significant locus and allelic heterogeneity not entirely captured by current testing platforms. The purpose of the present study was to characterize the underlying mutation in a patient with RP without a molecular diagnosis after initial genetic testing. METHODS: Whole-exome sequencing of the affected proband was performed...

#19
I E Gabbay, I Bahar, Y Nahum, E Livny
BACKGROUND: Descemet's membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) involves removal of the recipient's Descemet membrane (DM) prior to transplanting the donor's DM. When using balanced salt solution (BSS) or ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (OVDs), visualization of the host's DM during its stripping may be inadequate and may result in Descemet remnants and could lead to sub-optimal surgical results. Previous articles described excellent visualization when utilizing air injection but this requires repeated air injection into the anterior chamber (AC)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the vitreous and serum levels of angiopoietin-like protein 8 (ANGPTL-8) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). The serum levels of these factors were also analyzed in patients with diabetes and no diabetic retinopathy (NDR) and with non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), to detect the possible correlation between the ANGPTL-8 levels and hyperlipidemia. METHODS: Vitreous samples were obtained from 28 patients with PDR and from 12 patients without diabetes and with idiopathic macular hole (IMH)...
