PURPOSE: To report the clinical outcomes of reduced-fluence photodynamic therapy (PDT) for symptomatic subfoveal retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED) in central serous chorioretinopathy and identify prognostic factors affecting treatment outcome. METHODS: This retrospective interventional study included 35 eyes of 35 patients with serous subfoveal RPED with choroidal hyperpermeability. Cases with evidence of age-related macular degeneration were excluded from the study...

The aim of the report was to evaluate anatomical results and intra and postoperative complications after silicone oil (SIO) removal. Methods: Retrospective, interventional study evaluating consecutive cases with ambulatory SIO removal after vitrectomy for complex retinal detachments. The anatomical result was the main followed parameter. Intra and postoperative complications and also intraocular pressure changes were evaluated. Cases were followed-up for at least 12 months. Results: A total of 98 consecutive cases were reviewed...

Purpose: To investigate the correlation between visual acuity and central macular thickness (CMT) and choroidal thickness (CCT) in patients with wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods: In this retrospective analysis, 14 eyes that received >10 ranibizumab injections (based on pro re nata [PRN] regimen) and maintained initial visual acuity gain were analyzed. The following 5 parameters were measured at the foveal center: CMT (distance from the inner limiting membrane [ILM] to Bruch's membrane); central retinal thickness (CRT; distance from the ILM to the inner limit of the retinal pigment epithelium or subretinal fluid [SRF]); SRF thickness (SRFT); pigment epithelium detachment thickness (PEDT); and CCT...

PURPOSE: To build multivariate models to assess correctly and efficiently the contribution of tumor characteristics on the rate of regression of choroidal melanomas after brachytherapy in a way that adjusts for confounding and takes into account variation in tumor regression patterns. DESIGN: Modeling of longitudinal observational data. PARTICIPANTS: Ultrasound images from 330 of 388 consecutive choroidal melanomas (87%) irradiated from 2000 through 2008 at the Helsinki University Hospital, Helsinki, Finland, a national referral center...

AIM: To estimate the efficacy and safety of the Ahmed implant in patients with high risk for failure after glaucoma surgery. METHODS: In 342 eyes of 342 patients with refractory glaucoma, even with application of medical treatment, the Ahmed valve was introduced for intraocular pressure (IOP) control, in the period of the last 20y. The nature of glaucoma was neovascular in 162 eyes, pseudophakic or aphakic in 49 eyes, inflammatory in 29 eyes and non working previous antiglaucomatic surgical interventions in 102 eyes...

We report concurrent management of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and myopic choroidal neovascularization in the left eye of a 24-year-old female who presented with sudden dimness of vision due to retinal detachment and choroidal neovascularization. Intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor was injected during primary vitrectomy for retinal detachment. At final follow-up, the retina was attached with scarring of choroidal neovascularization. Ours is the first report of the use of intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor during vitrectomy for retinal detachment...

PURPOSE: To assess posterior segment findings on multicolor confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy by correlation with spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and to quantify agreement between these imaging modalities. METHODS: Retrospective review of 159 eyes of 96 consecutive patients who underwent concurrent imaging with multicolor confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and SD-OCT. Positive percent agreement and negative percent agreement were calculated for each finding identified on infrared, green, blue, and multicolor reflectance images using SD-OCT as a comparator...

PURPOSE: To evaluate chronological changes in choroidal thickness in a patient with pachychoroid pigment epitheliopathy (PPE) who was later diagnosed with central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) during follow-up. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 43-year-old man complained of metamorphopsia in the left eye. Funduscopy showed several punctate white subretinal lesions at the macula, but no macular serous retinal detachment in the left eye. Retinal pigment epithelium abnormality without serous retinal detachment at the macula on optical coherence tomography and choroidal vascular hyperpermeability on indocyanine green angiography suggested PPE in the left eye...

Purpose: Ocriplasmin is effective in closing macular holes due to vitreomacular traction. We present a case of macular subretinal material deposition observed with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and multimodal imaging, following successful closure of a macular hole following intravitreal ocriplasmin injection. Observations: An 81-year-old male presented with decreased vision in the left eye due to a full-thickness macular hole secondary to vitreomacular traction...

AIM: to analyse clinical and epidemiological characteristics of atrophic tear retinal detachment (ATRD) and evaluate anatomical and functional results. METHODS: Retrospective study of 48 cases underwent primary scleral buckling for ATRD. Mean follow up was 80,52 months. RESULTS: ATRD represented 7% of all reghmatogenous RD. Mean age of patients was 38 years and 7 months. Age was less than 40 years in 62,5% of patients. Male predominance was noted...

OBJECTIVE: To study the outcome and complications of sutured scleral fixated intraocular lenses (SSFIOL) in children. DESIGN: Retrospective study. SUBJECTS: A total of 279 eyes of 230 children who underwent SSFIOL at ≤18 years of age in a tertiary eye care centre in India. METHODS: Treatment-naive children having traumatic cataract or subluxated lens underwent a single-sitting lensectomy and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), along with SSFIOL insertion...

PURPOSE: The Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS) is a phacomatosis which include facial nevus flammeus, glaucoma, diffuse choroidal hemangioma, and leptomeningeal hemangiomatosis. External beam radiotherapy (EBRT) using photons was used to treat retinal detachment. We investigate the anatomical and functional results in a long-term basis. METHODS: Retrospective review of SWS patients treated by EBRT (20 Gy in 10 fractions) for an exudative diffuse choroidal hemangioma...

CASE REPORT: The case concerns a 31 year-old woman with no previous history who consulted due to decreased vision in both eyes. She mentioned taking 1 pill of ulipristal acetate (30mg) as an emergency contraceptive four days before the visual symptoms appeared. In the examination, a better corrected visual acuity of 0.6 was found in the right eye and 0.8 in left eye (by Snellen chart), and bilateral macular serous detachment. It was decided to observe, and 15 days later she showed a functional and anatomical improvement...

Retinal detachment with subsequent silicone oil retinopexy is not uncommon. A known complication of silicone retinopexy is intraventricular migration of the intraocular silicone oil. While the oil itself does not result in direct pathology, misdiagnosis may lead to an unnecessary diagnostic workup and possibly predispose the patient to surgery intervention. Silicone oil typically appears hyperdense on computer tomography (CT) and hyperintense on T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR). These imaging findings may mimic a mass or blood products...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of intravitreal silicone oil (SO) on subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT). METHODS: A total of 60 patients with unilateral pseudophakic macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment were treated with a three-port pars plana vitrectomy and a 5,700-cSt SO endo-tamponade and subsequent SO removal. SFCT was measured before and 3 months after SO removal. The main outcome measure was the difference between the SFCT of operated eyes and the fellow eyes...

Radiosurgery serves an important function in the treatment of patients with intraocular tumors and preserves visual function via organ conservation. Therefore, it is important to ensure the safety and precision of GK-SRS as a primary treatment for intraocular tumors. The present case study described a 57-year-old female with uveal melanoma treated with GK-SRS. Retrobulbar anesthesia following fixation of the treated eye, via the suture of two of the extraocular muscles to the stereotactic frame, was performed to immobilize the eye during treatment...
