REVIEW
Josef Flammer, Katarzyna Konieczka
This review describes the clinical and basic research that led to the description of Flammer syndrome. It is narrated from a personal perspective. This research was initiated by the observation of an increased long-term fluctuation of visual fields in a subgroup of glaucoma patients. As these patients had strikingly cold hands, peripheral blood flow was tested with a capillary microscopy, and vasospastic syndrome (VS) was diagnosed. Further studies on these patients revealed frequently weakened autoregulation of ocular blood flow and increased flow resistivity in retroocular vessels...

PURPOSE: We describe a healthy 37-year-old man with Bartonella henselae (B. henselae) neuroretinitis with concurrent central retinal vein occlusion and ischemic optic neuropathy resulting in optic atrophy and choroidal ischemia. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: A 37-year-old man presented with unilateral decreased vision and a fundus examination consistent with neuroretinitis. Further imaging review supported a concurrent diagnosis of central retinal vein occlusion...

BACKGROUND: The role of thrombophilic and cardiovascular risk factors in different manifestations of retinal vein occlusion (RVO), i.e., central or branch RVO, and at different ages is still debated. AIMS: To evaluate the association between thrombophilic and cardiovascular risk factors and the risk of RVO (overall, separately for central and branch RVO, and at different ages). METHODS: Case-control study on 313 patients with a first objectively-confirmed RVO (216 central and 97 branch RVO) and 415 healthy individuals...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the pain associated with intravitreal aflibercept injections. METHODS: The study included 119 patients who received intravitreal aflibercept injection at a single institution. Pain was evaluated by visual analog scale (VAS) immediately after the injection of 2 mg/0.05 mL aflibercept into the vitreous cavity using a 27-G needle. Additional variables including age, sex, indication for the injection, injection site by quadrant (superotemporal or inferotemporal), position during injection (sitting or supine), number of previous intravitreal injections in the study eye, presence of diabetes mellitus or hypertension, and lens status (phakic or pseudophakic) were recorded and assessed with self-reported pain scores...

We measured hemoglobin oxygen saturation (sO2) in the retinal circulation in healthy humans using visible-light optical coherence tomography (vis-OCT). The measurements showed clear oxygenation differences between central retinal arteries and veins close to the optic nerve head. Spatial variations at different vascular branching levels were also revealed. In addition, we presented theoretical and experimental results to establish that noises in OCT intensity followed Rice distribution. We used this knowledge to retrieve unbiased estimation of true OCT intensity to improve the accuracy of vis-OCT oximetry, which had inherently lower signal-to-nose ratio from human eyes due to safety and comfort limitations...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of unilateral intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) on the ocular circulation of the fellow eyes. METHODS: Fifteen eyes of 15 patients with macular edema (average age 69.6 ± 11.8 years) were studied. Eleven eyes had diabetic macular edema (DME) and four eyes had macular edema associated with a branch retinal vein occlusion. Each eye received 0.5 mg of IVR. The blood circulation on the optic nerve head of the treated and untreated eyes were determined by laser speckle flowgraphy (LSFG, Softcare Co...

PURPOSE: To describe a case of central retinal vein occlusion in a young patient presenting with symptomatic malignant hypertension because of Conn syndrome. METHODS: Single interventional case report. RESULTS: A 44-year-old man presented with a 1-day history of headache and vision loss in his right eye on a background of malignant hypertension. He was diagnosed with right central retinal vein occlusion. Further investigation of his malignant hypertension revealed Conn syndrome because of an aldosterone-secreting adenoma in the left adrenal gland...

RATIONALE: Neovascular glaucoma (NVG) is one of the most refractory types of glaucoma caused by high ischemic retinal disorders, resulting in severe visual loss. Intravitreal injections of ranibizumab have been reported to have anatomical and functional success in treating NVG. PATIENT CONCERNS-DIAGNOSES-INTERVENTIONS: We report a case with neovascular glaucoma due to central retinal vein occlusion who received combination therapy with intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) injection, panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) and subsequent 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) augmented trabeculectomy...

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE: Therapeutic effects of anti-VEGF agents, corticosteroids and laser therapy have been previously examined for treating macular oedema secondary to branch and central retinal vein occlusion (BRVO and CRVO). However, anti-VEGF efficacy has not been previously compared to corticosteroid or laser therapy efficacy. We performed a meta-analysis to compare these treatments. METHODS: Pertinent publications were identified through comprehensive literature searches...

Danhong Huayu Koufuye (DHK), a traditional Chinese prescription, is used to treat central retinal vein occlusion clinically. We previously reported that DHK prevented diabetic retinopathy (DR) in rats. Moreover, we found that it protected endothelial cells from hyperglycemia-induced apoptosis through antioxidation and anti-inflammation. Here, we investigated whether antioxidative and anti-inflammatory activities of DHK contributed to its therapeutic effect on DR in streptozotocin- (STZ-) induced diabetic rats...

PURPOSE: To compare intravitreal ranibizumab and dexamethasone implant in patients with macular edema (ME) secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS: Participants were 42 treatment naive patients with ME due to CRVO, who received either intravitreal 0.5 mg ranibizumab (n = 25) or intravitreal 0.7 mg dexamethasone implant (n = 17). The main outcomes included the mean change in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and central subfield thickness (CST) at month 12 compared to baseline in the two groups...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effects of intravitreal ranibizumab injection (IVR) on metamorphopsia in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and to assess the relationship between retinal microstructure and metamorphopsia. METHODS: Subjects were 39 eyes of 39 patients with branch retinal vein occlusion. The severity of metamorphopsia was quantified using the M-CHARTS before and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 months after treatment. Based on optical coherence tomography (OCT) images, we assessed central retinal thickness (CRT) and status of the external limiting membrane (ELM) and ellipsoid zone (EZ)...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To determine outcomes of intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) (Lucentis; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) versus bevacizumab (IVB) (Avastin; Genentech, South San Francisco, CA) for treatment of macular edema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) in routine clinical practice. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective study identified treatment-naïve patients with ME secondary to RVO where treatment with either IVB or IVR was initiated...

PURPOSE: To investigate whether the results of early tests for hypercoagulability are correlated with the development of central retinal vein occlusion risk factors later in life and to evaluate the necessity of these tests in younger patients. METHODS: This was a retrospective, observational case series. From January 1995 to December 2014, 55 patients aged below 56 years with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) were enrolled in the study. Laboratory evaluations for homocysteine, activated protein C resistance, protein C activity, protein S activity, antithrombin III activity, antiphospholipid antibodies, and anticardiolipin antibodies were obtained at the onset of CRVO...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to report a case of central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. In this report, we present the third case in the literature with CRVO after cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and the first case after CABG.

PURPOSE: To analyze the repeatability of thickness measurements of the central macula, ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GC-IPL), and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) before and after treatment of macular edema in branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS: We analyzed patients with BRVO who visited our retinal clinic. The repeatability of the thickness measurements were compared using the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) and coefficient of variation (COV) of affected versus normal fellow eyes...
