PURPOSE: To investigate the outcomes of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for chronic diabetic traction macular detachment (CTMD). METHODS: Ninety-six eyes that underwent PPV for CTMD of at least 6 months duration were retrospectively analyzed. Retinal reattachment rate, final vision, and prognostic factors for poor visual outcome were the main outcome measures. RESULTS: All eyes had long-standing TMD (median 12, range: 6-70 months). The median postoperative follow-up was 15 (range: 3-65) months...

PURPOSE: Reported 5-year survival rates in patients undergoing vitreous surgery for proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) range from 68-95%. Studies relating survival rates to medical baseline characteristics predate the millennium. This study aimed to update data on life expectancy of patients undergoing vitrectomy for PDR and identify baseline factors which may influence survival. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients who underwent their first pars-plana vitrectomy for PDR between April 2004 and May 2005 was performed...

PURPOSE: To determine the 1-year and 2-year likelihood of vitrectomy in diabetic patients undergoing initial pan retinal photocoagulation (PRP). METHODS: Diabetic eyes receiving initial PRP for proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) were analyzed to determine their risk for vitrectomy based on clinical findings. RESULTS: In total, 374 eyes of 272 patients were analyzed. The percentage of eyes undergoing vitrectomy 1 year and 2 years following initial PRP was 19...

The prevalence of diabetes is on the increase in developed countries. Accordingly, the prevention and treatment of vision-threatening diabetic eye complications is assuming greater importance. The overall aim of this thesis is to analyse risk factors for intraocular surgery in a large diabetes population and to report surgical results. The specific objectives are to (1) estimate the incidence of diabetic vitrectomy and analyse risk factors (Study I), (2) report long-term results, prognostic factors and incidence of cataract surgery after diabetic vitrectomy (Study II), (3) report results and prognostic factors after cataract surgery in diabetes patients (Study III) and (4) analyse risk factors for diabetic papillopathy with emphasis on metabolic control variability (Study IV)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the incidence of retinal redetachment after the removal of silicone oil endotamponade for complicated retinal detachment and identify possible factors affecting outcome. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of 173 patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade for complex retinal detachment and subsequent removal of silicone oil (ROSO). The outcome factors studied included anatomical success, best-corrected visual acuity and intraocular pressure pre- and post-ROSO...

PURPOSE: To identify changes in the clinical features, management, and prognostic factors of endogenous endophthalmitis in Korea from 1996 through 2010. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of medical records of patients diagnosed with endogenous endophthalmitis from January 1996 to December 2010, which was divided into 3 periods: 1996 to 2000, 2001 to 2005, and 2006 to 2010. Variables included age, source of infection, systemic conditions, initial and final visual acuities, causative organisms, and treatment...

BACKGROUND: To evaluate the role of preoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT), multifocal electroretinography (mfERG), and fluorescein angiography (FA) as prognostic factors for vision after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: Thirty-five eyes of 34 patients who underwent PPV were retrospectively reviewed. Best-corrected visual acuity (VA) was measured at baseline, and at 3, 6, and 9 months after surgery. Patients were categorized into two groups according to the final VA...

AIMS: To evaluate the relationship of axial length (AXL), intraoperatively assessed posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) status, and surgical outcomes of diabetic vitrectomy. METHODS: Retrospective, consecutive case series. Clinical records were reviewed for 115 eyes (50 males, 65 females) with more than a 6-month follow-up who underwent diabetic vitrectomy from a single surgeon. Thirty-three eyes had vitreous haemorrhage, 37 had tractional retinal detachment (TRD) threatening the macula, 43 had TRD involving the macula, and two had neovascular glaucoma...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to analyze lymphocyte infiltration using immunohistochemistry in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) membranes. METHODS: Sixteen patients, 13 with PDR and 3 without diabetes, underwent pars plana vitrectomy, and the epiretinal membrane was peeled. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded epiretinal membrane tissues were processed for immunohistochemistry with anti-leukocyte common antigen (LCA), CD3, and CD20 antibodies. Lymphocyte density was determined by direct counting at a high magnification under a light microscope, which was compared with the patients' visual prognoses...

PURPOSE: Diabetic macular edema (DME) causes visual loss in diabetic patients. Multifocal electroretinograms (mfERGs) have been used to assess macular function pre- and postvitrectomy for DME. METHODS: A standard three-port pars plana vitrectomy with peeling of inner limiting membrane was performed in 25 eyes of 21 patients (13 male, 8 female) with DME. For each patient, visual acuity examination, measure of retinal thickness (using optical coherence tomography), and mfERGs were performed before and 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months after vitrectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Proliferative diabetic retinopathy is treated with panretinal photocoagulation, which improves the visual prognosis in this complication considerably. The visual acuity (VA) and grade of retinopathy before treatment are known indicators of the visual prognosis after treatment, but the prognostic value of other clinical background and treatment parameters is unknown. METHODS: The study reports predictors for visual outcome identified among retrospective clinical background data and treatment parameters from 4422 panretinal photocoagulation sessions for proliferative diabetic retinopathy in 1013 eyes of 601 patients performed at the Department of Ophthalmology, Arhus University Hospital between 1985 and 2002...
