PURPOSE: The tractional retinoschisis is a poorly understood, rare, and likely underappreciated entity in retinopathy of prematurity. The purpose of this article is to describe clinical findings and surgical management of tractional retinoschisis in retinopathy of prematurity, masquerading as Stage 4 retinopathy of prematurity retinal detachment. METHODS: A retrospective review of a single case with literature review and case discussion. RESULTS: In this report, we describe a child with retinopathy of prematurity and tractional schisis, who initially presented with vitreous hemorrhage and was effectively managed by vitrectomy and inner wall retinectomy...

INTRODUCTION: Epiretinal membranes (ERM) have been increasingly characterized with the advent of new optical coherence tomographies (OCTs). We intended to perform a systematic review regarding prognostic factors (PF) of ERM after surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Systematic review of electronic databases was performed (last date of search was 10 August 2015): Medline, Scopus, Google Scholar, clinicaltrials.gov and current controlled trials. Search queries included: "membrane", "pucker", "prognosis", "prognostic", "epiretinal", "épirétinienne"...

Current states of traumatic eye injury are reviewed in terms of epidemiology in the developing countries and developed countries, causes of the trauma, eye injury types, traumatic eye injury diagnostic methods and treatments. Trauma-caused vision-threatening conditions such as open global injury, traumatic optic neuropathy and proliferative vitreoretinopathy are particularly discussed. Also the most updated clinic research in China as Eye Injury Vitrectomy Study is discussed. At the end, the current achievements and research in traumatic eye injury in the world are summerized...

In the article, the development of medical treatment for eye injuries in the mainland of China was reviewed. According to the data provided in Eye Injury Vitrectomy Study (EIVS), 27% of 72 eyes with no light perception (NLP) gained recovery in term of antomy and visual function. Vitrectomy initiated at more than 4 weeks after open eye injury is an independent risk factor for developing PVR. Prognosis of anatomy and visual function of the injured eye with PVR is markedly worse than that without PVR. Serious injuries of ciliary body, choroid and retina are three key parts of the eye with NLP...

BACKGROUND: Toric intraocular lens (IOL) implantation can be an effective method for correcting corneal astigmatism in patients with vitreoretinal diseases and cataract. Our purpose is to report the outcome of toric IOL implantation in two cases - a patient with scleral-buckle-induced regular corneal astigmatism and a patient with keratoconus following pars plana vitrectomy. As far as we are aware, there are no reported cases of toric IOL implantation in a vitrectomized eye with keratoconus nor of toric IOL implantation in patients with scleral-buckle-induced regular corneal astigmatism...

PURPOSE: To report a case that showed centripetal movements of the capillaries in the central macular region after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling. METHODS: A 57-year-old pseudophakic woman underwent successful vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling and air tamponade for a vitreomacular traction. Optical coherence tomography angiographic images of the 3 mm × 3 mm inner retinal vascular plexus were examined preoperatively and at 3 months postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To examine a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) associated with a peripapillary staphyloma with swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) before and after vitrectomy and circumferential photocoagulation. METHODS: The SS-OCT images including the montage images of two patients with a RRD associated with peripapillary staphylomas were analyzed. A 34-year-old woman (Case 1) and a 70-year-old woman (Case 2) both noticed temporal visual field defects in their left eyes...

PURPOSE: The surgery of choice for primary retinal detachment (RD) has shifted towards primary vitrectomy (PPV) in recent years. In this study, 2 cohorts of consecutive patients, treated by 8 retinal surgeons within a 7-year time span were compared. METHODS: Baseline demographic data, surgical procedure, and outcome of patients with primary RD surgery between January 2007 and December 2008 (group 1, G1) and January 2012 and December 2013 (group 2, G2) were compared...

PURPOSE: To study the outcomes of management of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in eyes with chorioretinal colobomas. METHODS: A retrospective review of 119 patients (119 eyes) with chorioretinal colobomas who underwent surgical repair for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment was performed. Data were collected on the site of the retinal break, type of surgery, anatomical success, and complications. RESULTS: The most common location of the primary retinal break was the intercalary membrane in 58...

PURPOSE: To compare 25- and 20-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for the management of pediatric cataract. METHODS: 20 eyes of 15 patients were randomly divided into two groups to undergo pars plana capsulotomy and vitrectomy by either 25-gauge (group A) or 20-gauge (group B) PPV after lens aspiration and IOL implantation. The two groups were compared for total surgical time, time taken in doing pars plana capsulotomy and vitrectomy, and the size of posterior capsulotomy...

PURPOSE: To investigate the clinical manifestations and surgical results after vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) in young patients. METHODS: Clinical features of patients between 18 to 40 years old who received vitrectomy for PDR between January 2009 and January 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. Those older than 40 years who received vitrectomy for PDR during the same period were retrospectively enrolled and compared as the control group...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of peripheral vitrectomy under air in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Consecutive patients who underwent 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy for RRD were included. After removal of core vitreous and drainage of subretinal fluid, peripheral vitreous was removed under air infusion without scleral indentation. Silicone oil or C3F8 gas was used as tamponade. RESULTS: Forty-five eyes of 45 patients were evaluated retrospectively...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the development of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) in preschool- and school-age children with cataract who underwent cataract surgery without posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of 30 eyes of 21 patients who underwent pediatric cataract surgery and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation were retrospectively reviewed. Patients' age, PCO status and duration, need for neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Nd:YAG) laser treatment based on coverage of visual axis, and follow-up period were recorded...

AIM: To determine the incidence, presentation and outcomes of progressive sight-threatening retinal detachment (RD) complicating degenerative retinoschisis. METHODS: We conducted the first prospective population-based epidemiological study of progressive schisis detachment over a 1-year period (2014-2015) in the UK. Case ascertainment was via monthly British Ophthalmological Surveillance Unit reporting cards sent to all ophthalmologists in the UK. For each reported case, data were collected using incident and 6 months follow-up questionnaires gathering information including demographic, presenting symptoms, retinal findings, primary management, primary outcome, secondary management and secondary outcome...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the combination of scleral buckling (SB) and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) versus PPV alone in the primary repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRDs). METHODS: The current study was a retrospective, comparative, interventional, consecutive case series of 179 eyes of 174 patients who underwent primary RRD repair by five surgeons between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2010, utilizing SB with PPV or PPV. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to compare the efficacy of the two surgical strategies and assess for risk factors of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)...
