Purpose. To introduce a clinical sign on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT), which may indicate high risk for full-thickness macular hole formation after internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. Methods. The preoperative SDOCT images of two patients-one with multilaminar hemorrhage from ruptured retinal artery macroaneurysm and one with serous retinal detachment and severe macular schisis from optic pit maculopathy-who developed full-thickness macular hole (FTMH) after ILM peeling were evaluated retrospectively...

A 78-year-old man complained of bilateral visual acuity loss. Optical coherence tomography examination showed bilateral macular schisis with fluid accumulation in the external retinal layers without vitreous traction. Fundus examination and fluorescein angiography were normal in both eyes. Both eyes were treated by phacoemulsification, intraocular lens implantation, and vitrectomy without laser, gas exchange, or retinal fenestration. Slow and progressive fluid resorption and improvement in VA were observed in both eyes...

The authors report extensive peripheral retinoschisis in a patient with stellate nonhereditary idiopathic foveomacular retinoschisis (SNIFR) detected by widefield optical coherence tomography (OCT). A 64-year-old woman diagnosed with foveomacular retinoschisis 3 years prior presented for evaluation after being seen by multiple other retina specialists. Standard macular spectral-domain OCT (6 mm) revealed typical foveomacular schisis involving only the outer retina. However, widefield OCT (12 mm) revealed diffuse bilateral retinoschisis involving both inner and outer retinal layers in the macula and midperiphery...

PURPOSE: X-linked retinoschisis (XLRS) is juvenile-onset macular degeneration caused by haploinsufficiency of the extracellular cell adhesion protein retinoschisin (RS1). RS1 mutations can lead to either a non-functional protein or the absence of protein secretion, and it has been established that extracellular deficiency of RS1 is the underlying cause of the phenotype. Therefore, we hypothesized that an ex vivo gene therapy strategy could be used to deliver sufficient extracellular RS1 to reverse the phenotype seen in XLRS...

PURPOSE: On clinical examination, it can be challenging to differentiate retinoschisis with outer retinal hole from schisis-detachment. This study examined the role of outer retinal hole spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging in conjunction with imaging of the posterior schisis cavity edge in differentiating between these conditions. METHODS: This is a retrospective case series. Out of 500 subjects with ICD-9 diagnoses of senile retinoschisis (361...

BACKGROUND: X-linked retinoschisis is one of the more frequently encountered inherited macular retinal disorders affecting young males, causing loss of vision. Patients exhibit macular schisis and peripheral schisis, which can mimic retinal detachment, a very different entity that requires surgical intervention. CASE PRESENTATION: An 8-month-old African-American boy was presented to our hospital with severe X-linked retinoschisis involving symmetrical bullous peripheral retinoschisis in both eyes, mimicking retinal detachment...

OBJECTIVE: To report our experience using the T-shaped macular buckle (MB) with or without pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) as primary surgery or with a previous failed surgical approach in patients affected by high myopia and macular hole (MH) with or without macular detachment and with or without macular schisis. The primary goal was to evaluate complete closure of the MH and reattachment of the retina. DESIGN: Retrospective case series of 21 consecutive patients who underwent T-shaped MB implant alone or combined with PPV at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, between January 2013 and November 2014...

PURPOSE: To report a case of full-thickness macular hole in a patient with X-linked retinoschisis and the outcome after surgical repair. METHODS: A 15-year-old boy with a history of X-linked retinoschisis presented to his ophthalmologist for routine follow-up and was found to have a Stage-3 macular hole in his left eye. His vision was 20/200. The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane peeling, and he received long-acting gas. Color fundus photography and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (Cirrus; Carl Zeiss Meditech Inc, Dublin, CA) recorded images at office visits, before and after surgical repair...

PURPOSE: We investigated whether scleral imbrication combined with pars plana vitrectomy without internal limiting membrane peeling would be effective in treating eyes with myopic macular schisis. METHODS: In this retrospective, interventional case series, 8 eyes of 8 patients with myopic retinoschisis without a macular hole were studied. Scleral imbrication was done with 6-mm-wide mattress sutures placed at the temporal quadrants. Pars plana vitrectomy and removal of the vitreous cortex were performed, but the internal limiting membrane was not removed...

PURPOSE: Retinoschisis and retinal detachments are primarily differentiated based on characteristic examination findings. In diagnostically challenging cases, noncontact wide-field infrared imaging can help diagnosis and visualize the extent/margins of retinoschisis, retinal detachment, or combined schisis detachments by comparing reflectivity patterns. METHODS: This is a retrospective, observational, descriptive case series of 14 eyes of 14 nonconsecutive patients, ranging from 28 to 89 years old (mean 61), diagnosed with retinoschisis, retinal detachment, or schisis detachment from May 5, 2014 to March 4, 2015...
