Vitrectomy for Postoperative Endophthalmitis: Surgical Pearls

Vitrectomy for Postoperative Endophthalmitis: Surgical Pearls ABSTRACT Endophthalmitis is the most devastating postoperative complication following intraocular surgery. Its incidence is low, but it is not zero, even if the most efficient prophylactic measures are employed. The Endophthalmitis Vitrectomy Study (EVS) recommended that surgery be done only in exceptional cases (visual acuity of light perception), but this conclusion can be...

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   A vitreo-retinal surgeon is always short one hand and needs an assistant. The author has no such luxury and has found a precious ally in external light sources provided by “chandeliers”. The paper presents the many instances in which these devices can prove extremely useful.

Retained Cataract Fragments: How to Avoid “Fishing for Trouble”

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Despite the fact that cataract surgery is considered a routine procedure, complications can still occur. What becomes important in these cases is a correct approach to solving the problem rather than making it worse with improvised solutions. The paper presents the author’s experience with a step-by-step approach to different...

Efficacy of Anti-VEGF Drugs for Macular Edema in Vitrectomized Eyes

Macular edema may be present in eyes that have undergone vitrectomy for a number of reasons (despite ILM peeling). Are anti-VEGF drugs effective in these cases and how should they be used? The paper attempts to answer this question through a comparative study of a limited number of vitrectomized eyes of patients who receive anti-VEGF treatment for macular edema versus a control group which have undergone vitrectomy without...

Reviewing the Main Steps in Macular Hole Surgery

Macular hole surgery has gone through many transformations as our understanding of the possible causes for the disease improved and the outcome of different techniques were compared. From complete posterior hyaloid detachment to face-down positioning, what seems to be really necessary and what is not? This paper tries to find answers to these questions through a rational approach sustained by...

Surgical Strategies in Complex Ocular Trauma

Ocular trauma remains an important cause of vision loss. Despite popular belief, many cases can have favourable outcomes if properly addressed. This video illustrates several types of injury and the approach taken to deal with them. The presentation is divided in two parts. Part 1 deals with retinal fibrosis developing as a result of open globe injuries, whereas part 2 introduces techniques which are useful in controlling complications...

Surgery Associated with Intravitreal Anti-VEGF Agents in CRVO. A More Rational Approach?

Central retinal vein occlusion is a multi-factorial event. Like any venous thrombosis, one of the key components in play is stenosis of the vessel. In the eye, this stenosis generally originates from the vein being compressed by a sclerotic artery in a non-expandable space such as the optic nerve at the level of lamina cribrosa. Resection of the lamina cribrosa should therefore result in proper reperfusion of the central retinal vein and...

The Use of New Surgical Strategies in Dealing with Ocular Trauma

The Use of New Surgical Strategies in Dealing with Ocular Trauma

Giampaolo Gini, MD (Prato, Italy), Vincent S. Reppucci, MD (New York, NY) SYNOPSIS New techniques and devices are helping us deal successfully with complex trauma cases. Drainage implants have proved reliable where no other option for controlling IOP is available. Posterior hyaloid identification with Triamcinolone and its consequent removal accounts for fewer mid- and long-term retinal complications. Finally, the laser-assisted corneal...

Bimanual Surgery as the Golden Standard in PDR

Giampaolo Gini, MD (Prato, Italy) SYNOPSIS Proliferative diabetic retinopathy continues to be a major cause of blindness throughout the world. Removal of fibrovascular tractions on the retina while avoiding the possibile iatrogenic damage deriving from such manouvers, requires both a good understanding of the anatomical variations involved in each specific case as well as the possibilty of using a bimanual technique. Aim of the video is to...

Complete and Early Vitrectomy for Eyes with Postoperative Endophthalmitis

Ferenc Kuhn, MD, PhD (Birmingham, AL), Giampaolo Gini, MD (Prato, Italy) PURPOSE: Following recommendations in the Endophthalmitis Vitrectomy Study (EVS), vitrectomy for postoperative endophthalmitis is performed today only if visual acuity drops to light perception. The authors evaluated their results achieved by performing complete and early vitrectomy for these eyes. METHODS: The authors treat their patients with postoperative...
