PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Although cataract surgery can effectively restore visual function in many patients with cataract, pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (PCME) remains an important cause of suboptimal visual acuity. The present review provides an overview of the current literature on the prevention and treatment of PCME. RECENT FINDINGS: Optimal prevention of PCME starts preoperatively with a personalized risk assessment. Diabetes mellitus, retinal vein occlusion, epiretinal membrane, macular hole, and uveitis are the most important risk factors for developing cystoid macular edema after cataract surgery...

REVIEW
H Hoerauf, B Kirchhof
Elective surgery of the vitreoretinal interface is currently the most common reason for vitrectomy in Germany. The evaluation and correct interpretation of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images is of great importance but the indications for vitrectomy in macular surgery should be based more on patient symptoms and not only the OCT findings. Watchful waiting is highlighted as an alternative therapeutic option in individual patients. This article addresses a number of aspects and discrepancies between findings and patients' level of suffering based on binocular symptoms...

Idiopathic macular telangectasia type 2 is a rare disease consisting primarily of bilateral macular capillary telangiectasia, alterations of the ellipsoid zone and intraretinal cysts that may appear as cystoid macular edema in the absence of neovascularization. Our goal was to study the efficacy of aflibercept in the treatment of these cysts. Thus, we performed a series of three intravitreal injections of aflibercept in the right eye of a woman with a typical presentation of macular telangectasia type 2 complicated by cystoid macular edema without neovascularization...

A 73-year-old woman diagnosed with unresectable pancreatic cancer received weekly gemcitabine(GEM)plus albuminbound paclitaxel(nab-PTX)therapy. Four months after nab-PTX therapy was initiated, she presented with a rapidly decreasing vision in her left eye at an ophthalmology clinic. On admission, her visual acuity was decreased, and optical coherence tomography(OCT)revealed a cystoid macular edema(CME)only in her left eye. She discontinued the nab-PTX therapy immediately. Her visual acuity improved on follow-up 6 months later...

Paclitaxel is a member of the taxane agents that has demonstrated efficacy in ovarian cancer, both in first- and in second-line therapy. Counted among the side-effects of this drug are neurological disorders. In the present study, a rare case of a non-neuropathic ocular disorder, known as cystoid macular edema (CME), due to paclitaxel in patients treated for ovarian cancer is described. Macular edema, or CME, is a common cause of visual impairment that has been classically demonstrated by fluorescein angiograms, showing capillary leakage...

Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK) has evolved into a routine surgical procedure for posterior lamellar keratoplasty. After its introduction more than 10 years ago, several modifications in grafting technique and postoperative treatment regimen helped to improve its safety and reproducibility. Although DMEK offers faster and better improvements in visual acuity, as well as less graft rejections when compared to Descemet's stripping (automated) endothelial keratoplasty (DS[A]EK), difficulties when implementing this technique hamper the widespread use in many areas...

We present the case of a patient who had several intravitreal methotrexate injections due to a uveitic macular edema and a known steroid response. An earlier off-label therapy with avastin had not been successful. After the intravitreal methotrexate injections a good resorption of the retinal fluid as well as a good intraocular pressure and a good visual acuity could be achieved. Visual acuity was limited by pre-existing glaucomatous optic nerve atrophy and a central scar in the cornea.
