PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of extraretinal proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) on retinal shortening in eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) using ultrasound (USG) and objectively prove the presence of intraretinal PVR (iPVR). METHODS: This is a double-masked pilot prospective controlled case series. Patients with total RD planned for vitreoretinal surgery were included in the study. USG was used to determine retinal-to-choroidal length ratios (RCRs) in all the quadrants...

Silicone oil is the one of the artificial materials used in vitreoretinal surgery for retinal detachment treatment. Since the silicone oil is sometimes applied along with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation the direct influence of silicone oil on the artificial implant should be taken into account. Presented study was performed in order to determine the time-dependent impact of silicone oil on hydrogel based ophthalmic materials. Two kinds of IOLs based on hydroxyethyl 2-methacrylate (HEMA) hydrogel material were immersed in silicone oil based on linear poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS)...

PURPOSE: Inflammatory macular hole is a rare complication of uveitis, and data on surgical outcomes of closure are scarce. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anatomical and visual outcomes of conventional pars plana vitrectomy for patients with uveitis. METHODS: Noncomparative, interventional, and consecutive case series from 6 vitreoretinal surgical centers from 2007 to 2015. Twenty eyes of 19 patients were included with 4 patients separated as viral retinitis...

PURPOSE: To report the clinical (anatomic and functional) and genetic findings of Wagner Syndrome (WS) in a Portuguese family. METHODS: Nine members of the family agreed to be examined. All had complete clinical eye examinations. The proband and selected patients underwent color fundus photography, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), automatic static white-on-white computerized perimetry, and electrophysiology assessment (flash ERG, multifocal(mf) ERG and dark adaptometry)...

Andrea Díaz-Valverde, Lihteh Wu
BACKGROUND: Epiretinal membranes (ERMs) have been described for more than 150 years. Currently, they are a common indication for vitreoretinal surgery. Recently, there has been an increasing trend to peel the internal limiting membrane (ILM). Although ILM peeling has generally been accepted as a fundamental step in macular hole repair, its current role in ERM remains controversial. METHODS: Literature review. RESULTS: Proponents of ILM peeling argue that peeling of the ILM reduces the recurrence rate and facilitates a greater resolution of retinal folds...

BACKGROUND: Retinal capillary hemangioma (RCH) is a rare and refractory eye tumor. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of two laser-based therapies for RCH, photodynamic therapy (PDT), and focal photocoagulation-based treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study. Eight RCH patients (10 eyes) receiving laser treatment and followed up from November 2011 to December 2016 in our hospital were selected and their medical records reviewed...

PURPOSE: Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) is the most common cause of recurrent retinal detachment (RD). We sought to determine the predictive factors of recurrent PVR formation and the need for additional vitreoretinal surgical intervention after uncomplicated primary RD repair. METHODS: This is a retrospective single-center case-control study of consecutive patients with PVR formation after uncomplicated RD repair. Logistic regression was used to assess factors associated with recurrent PVR formation...

A 51-year-old male who had suffered from right eye rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy received surgical treatments which included the following procedures: lens extraction, scleral buckle, vitrectomy, membrane peeling, photocoagulation, and silicone oil injection. The presenting visual acuity of the right eye was light perception. Slit-lamp examination revealed corneal opacity without a visible fundus. B-scan ultrasonography revealed retinal detachment. Endoscope-assisted vitrectomy was then performed in December 2014...

BACKGROUND: For intraocular surgery, most authors recommend general anaesthesia including intubation and neuromuscular blockade to avoid complications by patient movements. However, anaesthesia using a laryngeal mask and avoidance of muscle relaxants is common clinical practice. Purpose of this prospective observational study was to compare the incidence of eye movement and deviation of the eye axis during general anaesthesia adjusted to minimal alveolar concentration (MAC) for pars plana-vitrectomy (PPV) using a laryngeal mask without neuromuscular blockade (LM) versus endotracheal intubation and neuromuscular blockade (INT)...

Pathologic myopia is associated with degenerative changes of the globe, especially at the posterior pole. Eyes affected by pathologic myopia have higher odds to undergo posterior segment surgery and, in those eyes, vitreoretinal surgery is challenging. Many practical tips and tricks can make the surgical procedures simpler, significantly preventing sight-threatening intra- and post-operative complications. Moreover, novel surgical techniques and technological advancements (i.e. ad-hoc instrumentation, minimally invasive vitreoretinal surgery, filters, dye staining, intraoperative optical coherence tomography and 3-dimensional surgery) may play role in highly myopic eyes...

PURPOSE: To assess the decentration and angle of tilt of the intraocular lens (IOL) according to the intravitreal tamponade types used in combined phacoemulsification and vitreoretinal surgery. METHODS: This prospective and randomized clinical study involved 73 eyes of 69 patients who underwent combined vitreoretinal surgery. Eyes with intravitreal tamponades formed the study group and eyes without intravitreal tamponades formed the control group. The study group was further divided into silicone oil and gas tamponade subgroups...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: We report the first two cases of postoperative opacification of scleral-sutured Akreos AO60 intraocular lens after vitrectomy with the gas tamponade. METHODS: Two patients with ectopia lentis underwent pars plana vitrectomy, pars plana lensectomy, and scleral fixation of an Akreos AO60 intraocular lens with Gore-Tex suture. Retinal breaks were noted during vitrectomy and consequently intravitreal gas tamponade was used after endolaser retinopexy...

PURPOSE: To compare corneal wetting performances of different dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices. METHODS: Three different types of dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose %2 (HPMC), sodium hyaluronate %3-sodium chondroitin sulphate %4 (HACS), and sodium hyaluronate %3 (HA), were applied on corneal surfaces of 10 healthy volunteer subjects repeatedly at 3 different time points. Corneal wetting properties of the ophthalmic viscosurgical devices were compared qualitatively and quantitatively by anterior segment optical coherence tomography for 30 minutes...

PURPOSE: We sought to document the difference in the vitreoretinal configuration of Stage 4 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in photocoagulated and treatment naive eyes undergoing vitrectomy and to correlate it with surgical complexity. METHODS: Consecutive eyes posted for vitrectomy with Stage 4 ROP were documented preoperatively using a RetCam for the presence of peripheral traction (PT), presence of central traction just outside the arcades, and presence of traction extending to the lens...

PURPOSE: Intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) is a valuable tool during vitreoretinal surgery, helping the decision-making process. It is particularly useful in pediatric cases to evaluate the macular anatomy intraoperatively, avoiding further potentially dangerous surgery in children. The aim of this report is to describe the role of integrated iOCT in the management of traumatic hyphema in a pediatric patient. CASE REPORT: A 5-year-old girl was referred to our department with a history of recent domestic trauma in her right eye...
