Konstantinos Kaprinis, Hannaa Bobat, Gabriella De Salvo
PURPOSE: To describe the principle characteristics of combined hamartoma of the retina and retinal pigment epithelium ('combined harmatoma') on MultiColorTM imaging and evaluate its role as a diagnostic and management tool. METHODS: Retrospective, observational case series comprising three patients with unilateral, juxtapapillary combined harmatoma. Complete ophthalmic examination was performed. MultiColorTM , including green reflectance (GR) and near infra-red reflectance (NIRR), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and autofluorescence (AF) imaging were obtained (Heidelberg Spectralis)...

AIMS: To report anatomical and functional outcomes in patients with proliferative sickle retinopathy (PSR) who underwent 23-gauge (23G) and 20-gauge (20G) vitrectomy. METHODS: Retrospective consecutive case series of patients who underwent vitreoretinal intervention for complications of PSR between April 2009 and February 2015. Operations were performed at a tertiary referral centre, Moorfields Eye Hospital. Visual acuity and anatomical success rates were evaluated for PSR complicated by retinal detachment, tractional vitreous haemorrhage and macular hole...

Jonathan Aker, Jessica Dowling, Lawrence Halperin
Purpose: To report the case of a patient with Crystalens, an accommodating posterior-chamber intraocular lens (IOL), who experienced a myopic shift following subsequent vitrectomy with gas tamponade. We propose a hypothesis as to why this myopic shift occurred and analyze its validity based on current literature. Observations: A patient had cataract surgery with implantation of a Crystalens AT-50AO +21D. Preoperative A-scan measured anterior chamber depth (ACD) to be 3...

Purpose: To report the clinical presentation, multimodal imaging, and management of a patient with metastatic melanoma who presented with cystoid macular edema (CME). Observations: We report a case of a 71-year-old Caucasian male with metastatic melanoma who presented with bilateral cystoid macular edema after being on treatment with a programmed T cell death ligand 1 inhibitor, MPDL3280, for 1 year. Multimodal imaging techniques, including color fundus photographs, autofluorescence, spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography (Spectralis, Heidelberg, Germany), and spectral-domain OCT angiography (Zeiss; California, USA) were performed to evaluate the etiology of his CME and to monitor his response to treatment...

Purpose: To investigate the molecular components of the vitreous in order to better understand retinal physiology and disease. Methods: Vitreous was acquired from patients undergoing vitrectomy for macular hole and/or epiretinal membrane, postmortem donors, and C57BL/6J mice. Unbiased proteomic analysis was performed via electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). Gene ontology analysis was performed and results were confirmed with transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The authors evaluated long-term postoperative visual outcomes and recurrence rates following surgery for symptomatic epiretinal membrane (ERM) ± internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, consecutive case series of 78 patients undergoing vitrectomy for symptomatic ERM between 1/2010 and 4/2012 with follow-up through at least postoperative year 5 (POY5). Outcomes included visual acuity (VA) (Snellen VA converted to logMAR), central retinal thickness (CRT; μm), and ERM recurrence...

The article presents a rare clinical case of secondary epiretinal membrane (ERM) in a 67-years-old woman. The patient was diagnosed with ERM in the left eye after loss of vision complaints. One year prior to the visit the patient had underwent 2 sessions of laser photocoagulation for proliferative post-thrombotic retinopathy in the left eye. In the context of relatively high visual functions (decimal visual acuity of 0.7 at the time of the visit), observation strategy was carried out. The follow-up period was 2 years...

PURPOSE: To identify prognostic factors that may predict the amount of long-term visual improvement after idiopathic epiretinal membrane removal. METHODS: A retrospective study of 114 patients who underwent epiretinal membrane removal was performed. The central foveal thickness, inner retinal layer thickness, inner retinal irregularity index, length of the cone outer segment tip line defect, and length of the ellipsoid zone defect were measured. The optical coherence tomography parameters that were associated with the amount of visual improvement were determined at 24 months postoperatively...

Objective: Internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling has been the standard of treatment for macular holes. Besides, causing retinal nerve fiber layer surface abnormality, postoperative extrafoveal multiple retinal holes is a rare phenomenon following ILM peeling. We report an unusual complication of eight extrafoveal macular holes occurring following ILM peeling. Case presentation: A 60-year-old male presented with complaints of decreased and distorted vision in the right eye...

INTRODUCTION: To highlight the differences in macular pigment optical density (MPOD) between eyes with vitreoretinal interface syndrome and healthy control eyes, to assess the changes in MPOD in eyes treated with macular peeling, to investigate the relationships between MPOD changes and measures of retinal sensitivity such as best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and microperimetry. METHODS: In this cross-sectional comparative study, 30 eyes affected by idiopathic epiretinal membrane (iERM, 15eyes) or full-thickness macular hole (FTMH, 15eyes) were compared with 60 eyes from 30 healthy age-matched patients...

This study investigated the "real-world" use of ranibizumab for neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) in Taiwan and assessed the visual outcome. We reviewed the medical records at National Cheng Kung University Hospital, Taiwan, during 2012-2014 for 264 consecutive eyes of 229 patients with nAMD, who applied for ranibizumab covered by national health insurance. A total of 194 eyes (73.5%) in 179 patients (65.5% men; mean ± standard deviation age 69.4 ± 10.7 years) were pre-approved for treatment...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine whether the centripetal displacement of the capillaries in the macular region after vitrectomy is caused by internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. Methods: Eighteen patients with different types of retinal diseases but with a normal or approximately normal foveal contour underwent successful vitrectomy with (n=12) or without (n=6) ILM peeling. Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) images of the inner retinal vascular plexus in the macular region were analyzed pre- and postoperatively...

INTRODUCTION: Epiretinal traction is not responsible only for epiretinal but also intraretinal changes. This study aims to describe structural and vascular intraretinal changes after macular peeling in idiopathic (iERM) vs diabetic ERM (dERM). METHODS: We conducted a prospective interventional study on forty-two eyes, 23 with iERMs and 19 with dERMs, undergoing ERM-ILM peeling. We performed SD-OCT preoperatively, 1 and 6 months postoperatively to assess central macular thickness (CMT), intraretinal cysts (IC) and/or continuous ectopic inner foveal layers (CEIFL), superficial and deep capillary free zone (CFZ) area on OCT-A...

PURPOSE: To study the natural history and morphologic characteristics of lamellar macular holes (LMHs) in the eyes with pathological myopia. METHODS: Retrospective observational case series of 44 eyes of 44 patients examined at a single institutional vitreoretinal practice. The included eyes must present an irregular foveal contour and schitic or cavitated lamellar separation of neurosensory retina on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and an area of increased autofluorescence on blue fundus autofluorescence (B-FAF) to be included...
