Chorioretinal Adhesion Strength After High-frequency Electric Welding vs Laser Coagulation

Background: Chorioretinal adhesion strength is an important factor in determining the outcome of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment surgery. The precise quantification of the strength of chorioretinal compound and its nature in experiments carried out a number of authors by measuring force required to detach the retina from the choroid. The results indicate that regardless of the method of exposure (cryo, diathermy, or laser coagulation),...

Intravitreal Ranibizumab Combined with Selective Laser Coagulation of Pigment Epithelium for Cystoid DME

Advantages: Selective laser coagulation of pigment epithelium (SLCPE) is effective laser procedure for treatment diffuse and focal diabetic macular edema with minimal damage of retina, but cystoid macular edema (CDME) is very torpid to different treatment modalities, and the majority of authors prefer grid laser for its treatment. We suggested that previous intravitreal ranibizumab (0.5 mg) will create conditions for effective SLCPE in...
