PURPOSE: To study the efficacy and outcomes of short-term postoperative vitreoretinal tamponade with perfluorocarbon heavy liquid in patients with giant retinal tear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study group consisted of 13 consecutive patients (13 eyes) who presented with giant retinal tear at a tertiary medical center in 2011-2015 and were treated with vitrectomy followed by short-term tamponade with perfluorocarbon heavy liquid. A minimum of 3 months' follow-up was required for inclusion...

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...

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...

To evaluate the occurrence of late-onset corneal haze (LOCH) after vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)-treated eyes. This observational cohort study comprised 13 eyes of 13 patients who underwent vitrectomy for RRD and who had been subjected to PRK years earlier. The occurrence of LOCH was evaluated together with all the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative factors that could affect final corneal status. LOCH developed in 2 eyes. Both patients had undergone PRK for high myopia--one 3 years and the other 9 years prior to RRD...

METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients of retinitis pigmentosa with RRD from January 1990 to December 2013 at a tertiary eye care institute. RESULTS: Of total 28,622 patients of retinitis pigmentosa over a 23-year period, 17 eyes of 17 patients had RRD. Mean age at presentation was 34.53 ± 16...

AIM: To study outcomes after using perfluoro-n-octane (PFO) as a short-term postoperative vitreous substitute in eyes undergoing primary vitrectomy with or without sclera buckling for complex rhegmatogenous retinal detachments with inferior/multiple breaks or giant retinal tears (GRTs) or retinal detachment with extensive proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). METHODS: A prospective study was carried out where in 43 patients (Group 1) PFO was exchanged with silicon oil in the same surgical procedure and in 22 patients (Group 2) PFO was kept for 3 days and then exchanged with silicon oil by a separate surgical procedure...

PURPOSE: To describe the use of half-dose anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy in a patient with giant pigment epithelial detachments. METHODS: Observational case report. A 76-year-old woman with neovascular age-related macular degeneration presented with massive bilateral pigment epithelial detachments measuring over 1000 μm in height. Her right eye was treated with standard-dose aflibercept, which led to two large retinal pigment epithelium tears. Treatment of the left eye with half-dose aflibercept led to complete resolution of the detachment without tear formation...

The purpose of this study was to report the surgical outcomes after creating a 120° intentional giant retinal tear for use in removing hemorrhage and subretinal proliferative tissue in patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) or age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). This study involved 12 eyes of 12 patients (10 eyes: PCV, 2 eyes: ARMD). After removal of the lens in phakic eyes, we performed a vitrectomy with artificial posterior vitreous detachment. Subsequently, a 120° intentional giant retinal tear was created in the temporal periphery, the retina was then turned, and the subretinal hemorrhage and proliferative tissue were removed...

Remnants of a persistent hyaloid artery can occasionally cause cataracts and traction on the retina at the posterior pole of the eye.It is the task of the ophthalmologist to weigh up the risk of amblyopia against the risks of vitrectomy and lensectomy. The retina is primarily intact. This is different from the group of hereditary vitreoretinal dystrophies where defects in the retina and vitreous body contribute equally to the overall clinical manifestations. Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) of childhood is sometimes misdiagnosed as uveitis...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To investigate outcomes of contemporary surgical techniques for repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD) associated with giant retinal tears (GRT). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective, consecutive case series including 58 eyes of 58 patients. Mean age was 52 years (range: 16 to 83 years). All patients underwent 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy with use of perfluorocarbon liquid and intravitreal tamponade (28 with silicone oil, 25 with octafluoropropane gas, and five with sulfur hexafluoride gas)...

The incidence of endophthalmitis after pars plana vitrectomy is low. Silicone oil is a tamponading agent which has anti-microbial activity. Post-operative endophthalmitis following vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade has been rarely reported. We describe the case of a young male who underwent pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil for retinal detachment with a giant retinal tear. He developed a clinical picture suggestive of endophthalmitis on the first post-operative day, and vitreous culture grew multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa...

A 22-year-old male patient presented with gradual outward deviation of the right eye following corneal tear repair in that eye 8 years prior. He was asymptomatic in the left eye. On examination, his best corrected visual acuity was counting fingers at 2 m in the right eye and 20/80 in the left eye. The left eye showed a large macular hole, 2845 µm in diameter, with a retinal detachment at the posterior pole. The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling with inverted ILM flap technique and silicone oil injection...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to describe the treatment of giant retinal tears (GRTs) with 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and medium-term postoperative perfluoro-n-octane (MT-PFO). METHODS: The study was a retrospective interventional case series of consecutive patients with GRTs treated with 25-gauge PPV and postoperative MT-PFO for a period of 2-3 weeks. A second, staged procedure was performed in all patients for PFO removal. RESULTS: Twenty-three eyes of 22 patients were studied, with a mean follow-up of 33...

Retinal tears after laser photocoagulation are a rare complication that occurs after intense laser. It is talked about among retina specialist occurring particularly at the end of a surgical case while applying endophotocoagulation; to the best our knowledge, there are no reports in the literature of a large retinal tear induced after attempted in-office demarcation laser photocoagulation (DLP) that simulated a giant retinal tear. DLP has been employed in the management of selected cases of macula sparring rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD)...
