BACKGROUND: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare primarily autosomal dominant condition in which the connective tissues of bones, ligaments and sclerae do not form properly. Typically, mutations in COL1A1 and COL1A2 genes lead to the defective formation or quantity of type I collagen, the principle matrix in these tissues. Molecular genetic studies have now elucidated multiple genetic subtypes of the disorder but little literature exists on the risk of retinal tears and detachments in OI...

Purpose: To report two patients with giant retinal tear (GRT) associated retinal detachment in the setting of baseball trauma. Observations: Two patients presented with retinal detachment associated with GRT following blunt trauma with a baseball. The first was a superotemporal GRT detachment treated with scleral buckling, pars plana vitrectomy, endolaser, and silicone oil injection. He subsequently underwent cataract surgery with silicone oil removal and at two year follow up the retina with attached with best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20...

Blunt trauma is the most common cause of posterior dislocation of the crystalline lens. We describe a rare case of subretinal migration of crystalline lens through the giant retinal tear following blunt ocular trauma. This incidental finding of subretinal dislocation of lens following blunt ocular trauma was confirmed on histopathological examination of the enucleated eye. This complication has not been described by histopathological examination in literature so far.

Summary: We evaluated the clinical outcomes for ophthalmic endoscope-assisted vitrectomy in consecutive patients with uncomplicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). The primary success rate was 98.4% (125/127) without performing a posterior drainage retinotomy or using perfluorocarbon liquids (PFCL) for subretinal fluid drainage. Purpose: To investigate the clinical outcomes of endoscope-assisted vitrectomy in patients with uncomplicated RRD. Methods: We examined 127 eyes from consecutive patients who underwent repair of RRD by 23- or 25-gauge endoscope-assisted vitrectomy, with a minimum follow-up of 3 months...

PURPOSE: To describe the excellent outcome of surgery for bilateral giant retinal tears (GRTs) with better options of endotamponade. METHODS: This is a case report of a 62-year-old man who presented with bilateral GRTs and associated retinal detachment. The tear in the right eye was supero-temporal and silicone oil was used as an endotamponade. The tear in the left eye was infero-temporal and perfluorocarbon liquid was used as an endotamponade. RESULTS: The outcome at 6 months after surgery was excellent with visual acuities of 6/6 in both eyes...

PURPOSE: To report a giant retinal pigment epithelium rip in a patient with a bullous retinal and choroidal detachment. METHODS: Case report with widefield imaging, fundus autofluorescence, and optical coherence tomography of the retina. RESULTS: This 62-year-old patient had a history of advanced glaucoma, trabeculectomy, blebitis, and endophthalmitis. He had cataract surgery 6 weeks before presentation. He was found to have a large bullous retinal and choroidal detachment with a large retinal pigment epithelium tear at the limit of the choroidal detachment...

BACKGROUND: Retinoblastoma is considered the most common intraocular malignancy in childhood, comprising 4% of all pediatric cancers. Management of retinoblastoma has evolved over the past two decades and intra-ophthalmic artery chemotherapy has emerged as a new modality of globe-conserving treatment with excellent results. This treatment achieves effective tumor reduction by delivering localized chemotherapy, decreases enucleation rate, and minimizes systemic and local side effects. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of an 8-year-old girl with a late presentation of an advanced unilateral retinoblastoma associated to diffuse exudative retinal detachment in the right eye, classified as group E by the International Classification of Retinoblastoma...

PurposeSilicone oil is the most common choice of tamponade agent used when managing a giant retinal tear (GRT). Concern exists regarding its potential detrimental effect on vision. We herein report on visual and surgical outcomes of all patients treated at Moorfields Eye Hospital for a GRT over a five year period. We further analysed a subgroup of fovea-sparing retinal detachments (RD) treated by pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with either silicone oil or gas tamponade.MethodsRetrospective comparative, non-randomised, cross-sectional review of patients with a new diagnosis of GRT from 1 September 2005 to 31 August 2010ResultsOne hundred twenty four eyes of 118 patients were identified with mean age of 45...

Exclusion criteria were concomitant presence of diabetic retinopathy, and uveitis. All patients had to have at least 3 months of follow up. The success rate and factors associated with repeated surgery were determined...

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment after successfully regressed retinopathy of prematurity is a rare occurrence. Late onset rhegmatogenous retinal detachment has been reported infrequently. The authors report a case of aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity that underwent uneventful regression after laser photocoagulation and later developed an inoperable closed funnel retinal detachment due to a giant retinal tear. This case represents the earliest development of such complications in regressed aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity treated by laser...

PURPOSE: To investigate the use of 27-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with short-term tamponade of perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) for repair of giant retinal tears (GRT). METHODS: Retrospective case series study. Consecutive patients with GRT were treated with 27-gauge PPV and short-term tamponade of PFCL for 7-10 days. PFCL was completely removed with a secondary surgery. RESULTS: Twenty-three eyes of 23 patients were included. All the patients achieved primary anatomic success...

REVIEW
Maria H Berrocal, Megan L Chenworth, Luis A Acaba
Giant retinal tears (GRTs) are full-thickness circumferential tears of more than 90 degrees of the retina that are associated with vitreous detachment. They are related to ocular trauma, high myopia, aphakia, pseudophakia, genetic mutations involving collagen and young age. GRTs comprise 1.5% of all rhegmatogenous retinal detachments and the average age of incidence is 42 years. GRTs are more common in males, as 72% of all cases occur in males. The incidence of GRTs in the general population is estimated to be 0...

A 12-year-old boy presented with a total rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and a giant retinal tear in the right eye. Clinical examination, optical coherence tomography, and fundus images showed an optically empty vitreous, lattice degeneration, and retinoschisis of the macula. Genetic testing revealed mutations in the COL2A1 and RS1 genes, confirming a dual diagnosis of Stickler syndrome and X-linked retinoschisis, respectively. This represents the first published account of a patient with both Stickler syndrome and X-linked retinoschisis...

PURPOSE: Laser photocoagulation has typically been used as an adjunctive treatment to pars planar vitrectomy in achieving retinopexy in the treatment of giant retinal tears. We describe three cases where the giant retinal tear was treated with laser photocoagulation alone. METHODS: A retrospective case report of three patients with giant retinal tears who underwent primary laser photocoagulation. RESULTS: Fundus examination up to 18 months after primary laser photocoagulation of all 3 patients revealed a flat attached retina and no significant complications...
