We propose new surgical approach making vitrectomy with intraocular diathermy into...

Clinical Experience of Ocriplasmin for Vitreomacular Traction and MH

Purpose: To evaluate the anatomical and functional results after ocriplasmin (JETREA, ThromboGenics NV, Iselin, NJ, USA) injection in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT) with or without macular hole (MH). Methods: Fifteen prospective patients with VMT were treated with a single ocriplasmin injection and followed-up at baseline, 1 week, 1, 3 and 6 months. ETDRS best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure and...

Is PFCL Totally Atoxic and Safe?

Purpose: To describe a very rare complication in vitreo retinal surgery related with a Perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL). Description: We present 4 cases in which we use PFCL, two of them (Retinal detachment with macula attached and dislocated IOL in vitreous cavity) passed from 20/20 VA to hand movements and a severe central scotoma. All of them we could observe a severe atrophy in macular area with a complete disparition of retinal cell...

Vitrectomy in Two Steps

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2009/videos/FernandoFaus_1_VP6_768K.flv Authors: Fernando Faus, Jose Mª Olivan, MªTeresa Ballarin, Enrique Albalad, Zaragoza, Spain Advantages: One problem in performing vitrectomy is the occurrence of retinal tears in the area of sclerotomies secondary to vitreous traction generated during repeated maneuvers of entry and exit during surgery. We present a new technique that allows the introduction of vital dyes...
