PurposeUsing optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) to investigate the area with flow in the superficial retinal vessel network (SVRN) and choriocapillaris (CC) layer among male subjects with choroideremia (CHM), female carriers, and normal controls to identify vascular changes.Patients and methodsImages of SRVN and CC layer were acquired in 9 affected males, 5 female carriers, and 14 age- and gender-matched controls using the Angiovue software of the RTVue XR Avanti.ResultsThe mean age was 33 years for affected male CHM patients (median 30 years), 46 years for female carriers (median 53 years), and 39 years for controls (median 38...

Anterior segment ischemia (ASI) is a potentially serious but rare complication of strabismus surgery. Among several risk factors, ASI occurs after strabismus surgery because of the nature of the anterior segment circulation. Disinsertion of rectus muscles leads to a decrease in the blood supply to the various anterior segment structures. We report a series of retrospective and prospective studies performed by our group focused on determining the risk of anterior segment ischemia following strabismus surgery, diagnosis, and modifications to surgical techniques to minimize the impact on anterior segment circulation...

REVIEW
A C Bird, D Bok
The regional susceptibility of the retina to diseases has been well known by clinicians for many years. It is surprising that the implications of these observations have not spawned major research efforts to characterise the structural and functional attributes of the outer retina in different regions of a foveate retina. Without such an effort, the understanding of the disease mechanisms in retinal dystrophies will remain limited and may hamper therapeutic efforts. That outer retinal disease is responsible for over 50% of blind registration in the western world underlines the importance of these considerations...

PurposeTo investigate the recovery of photoreceptors following the treatment in Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease.Patients and methodsThis was a retrospective study. We enrolled 28 patients with VKH (56 eyes). The clinical and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings were recorded for 12 months after treatment. The patterns of photoreceptor recovery on OCT were defined: pattern F group=Foveal photoreceptor recovery visible first; pattern E group=Extrafoveal photoreceptor recovery visible first; and pattern S group=Simultaneous foveal and extrafoveal photoreceptor recovery...

PurposeTo compare endothelial cell loss and complications following Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) with use of three commercially available injectors.MethodsFrom 179 consecutive DMEK procedures, 66 cases with uncomplicated graft preparation and completed 12-month follow-up were included in this retrospective study. According to the injector used, 3 groups were formed: group 1 (D.O.R.C. injector, n=16), group 2 (Geuder injector, n=24), and group 3 (Pasteur laboratory pipette, n= 26). Endothelial cell density (ECD) and endothelial cell loss were evaluated preoperatively and at 3, 6 and 12 months postoperatively; surgery-related complications were recorded...

PurposeTo evaluate the time course of changes in the thickness of retinal layers after epiretinal membrane (ERM) removal surgery.MethodsA retrospective cohort study of patients following surgery for idiopathic ERM. We used new specialized image analysis software to create a thickness map of each retinal layer and analyzed changes during one year follow-up. Healthy fellow eyes were used as negative controls and the retina prior to surgery as positive control.ResultsTwenty-one patients were included with a mean age of 68±13 years...

REVIEW
A Warwick, A Lotery
Considerable advances have been made in our understanding of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) genetics over the past decade. The genetic associations discovered to date are estimated to account for approximately half of AMD heritability, and functional studies of these variants have revealed new insights into disease pathogenesis, leading to the development of potential novel therapies. There is furthermore growing interest in genetic testing for predicting an individual's risk of AMD and offering personalised preventive or therapeutic treatments...

A A McNab
A very large number of disorders affect the orbit, and many of these occur in the setting of systemic disease. This lecture covers selected aspects of orbital diseases with systemic associations in which the author has a particular clinical or research interest. Spontaneous orbital haemorrhage often occurs in the presence of bleeding diatheses. Thrombosis of orbital veins and ischaemic necrosis of orbital and ocular adnexal tissues occur with thrombophilic disorders, vasculitis, and certain bacterial and fungal infections...

PurposeVarious combination treatment regimens have been tried to improve the short-term efficacy of intravitreal monotherapy for the treatment of macular oedema (MO) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Our study introduces the RandOL protocol (Ranibizumab and Ozurdex with Laser photocoagulation) of initial anti-VEGF therapy, controlling recurrent non-ischaemic MO with an intravitreal steroid and applying laser therapy to non-perfused retina. We describe our 12-month follow-up experience on timing for adjunctive therapy and real-world effectiveness and safety data...

A D Henderson, N R Miller
A carotid-cavernous fistula (CCF) is an abnormal communication between arteries and veins within the cavernous sinus and may be classified as either direct or dural. Direct CCFs are characterized by a direct connection between the internal carotid artery (ICA) and the cavernous sinus, whereas dural CCFs result from an indirect connection involving cavernous arterial branches and the cavernous sinus. Direct CCFs frequently are traumatic in origin and also may be caused by rupture of an ICA aneurysm within the cavernous sinus, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV, or iatrogenic intervention...
