SD-OCT Study of Persistent Subretinal Blebs After RD Repair

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Purpose: To study morphology and etiology of persistent subretinal blebs after surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Materials and methods: 10 eyes of 10 patients presenting persistent subretinal blebs after surgery for RRD. All eyes received a complete ophthalmological examination inclusive of FAF, IR, SD-OCT and en...

SD-OCT Findings in Acute Syphilitic Posterior Placoid Chorioretinopathy

Purpose:  To describe the appearance of Acute Syphilitic Posterior Placoid Chorioretinitis (ASPPC), a rare ocular manifestation of syphilis, on Spectral Domain-Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) both before and after treatment. Methods:  Ophthalmic examination, imaging studies, and SD-OCT scans of 30 eyes of 19 confirmed ASPPC cases were analyzed both at the time of presentation and at each follow-up visit. Standard treatment for...

Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Modifications After ILM Peeling

Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Modifications After ILM Peeling Antonio Ciardella Advantages: To identify retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness modifications after internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling for idiopathic macular hole (MH) and epiretinal membrane (ERM) and to correlate it to visual field (VF) changes and to the postoperative appearance of early transient edematous swelling of the arcuate RNFL (SANFL) and of later...

Swelling of the Arcuate Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer (SANFL) After Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling for Idiopathic Macular Hole and Epiretinal Membrane Removal

Antonio Ciardella (Bologna, Italy) Advantages: To report a particular appearance of the fundus, occasionally seen after removal of the internal limiting membrane (ILM). Methods: 56 eyes of 56 consecutive patients with an epiretinal membrane and 38 eyes of 36 consecutive patients with idiopathic macular hole, who underwent pars plana vitrectomy and ILM peeling. All patients received a complete ophthalmic examination, infrared (IR) and...

Clinical Detection of Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) Using the Automated Retinal Imaging System

Antonio P. Ciardella, MD (Denver, CO) PURPOSE: To compare stereo photographic images produced by the Automated Retinal Imaging System (ARIS) and the retinal image maps created using Optical Coherence Tomography (Stratus OCT-III) and to determine if the ARIS is an effective screening tool to detect DME. We hypothesized that the ARIS photos will be an effective, noninvasive screening tool to detect macular edema in diabetic...
