Complete Visual Recovery After Erythropoietin (EPO) IVT Realized 48 Hours Post Central Ischemic Retinal  Venous Occlusion: A Full Documented Case Report ABSTRACT We report here the case of a 59-year-old male patient with a stabilized hemochromatosis, victim of Ischemic Central Retinal Venous Occlusion (ICRVO) involvement of the right eye. The ischemic nature and absence of stasis have challenged the anti-VEGF treatment. A treatment...

Cine-angiography ICG Demonstrates Choroidal Re-perfusions After Vortex Vein Occlusions in AMD

Choroidal volume is reduced along aging. Choroidal perfusion is decreased by 37% in AMD (Grunwald JE1998) (1) Choroidal thickness is reduced by 50% (EDI-OCT study-Spaide RF 2009) (2) Vortex Veins Occlusion (VVO) might restaure choriocapillaris perfusion. (Hayreh SS 1982, experiments in the Rhesus monkey) (3) and (Bonnet M 1985, surgery in 17 human eyes with AMD) (4). The goal of the study was to evaluate the choroidal perfusion after...

Cine-angiography ICG Demonstrates Choroidal Re-perfusions After Vortex Vein Occlusions in AMD

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Choroidal volume decreases with age. Choroidal perfusion is also decreased by 37% (Grunwald JE1998)- 50% (EDI-OCT study-Spaide RF 2009) in AMD. Vortex Veins Occlusion (VVO) might restore choriocapillaris perfusion. (Hayreh SS 1982, experiments in the Rhesus monkey, Bonnet M 1985, surgery in 17 human eyes with AMD). The goal of the study...

Surgical Treatment of Early AMD (drusen) with Vortex Vein Occlusion: 4 to 6 Years Follow Up of a Pilot Study

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2010/congress/Age-Related-Macular-Degeneration-2.flv Richard Luscan (Paris, France) Advantages: There is extensive literature about the vascular component of the etiopathogenesis of AMD. Lutty brought histopathological evidence that in wet AMD, choriocapillaris (CC) disturbances precede RPE atrophy (2009). Bonnet was the first to perform Vortex Vein Occlusion (VVO) for wet forms of AMD in 17 human eyes (1983)....

New Progress in the Surgical Treatment of AMD by Vortex Vein Occlusion

Richard Luscan, MD (Garches, France), P. Di Costanzo, (Saint Ouen, France), O. Polony, (Saint Ouen, France), R. Legac, (Saint Ouen, France), A. Chouquet, (Saint Ouen, France) PURPOSE: To demonstrate the efficacy of choriocapillaris repair surgery by vortex vein occlusion on various forms of AMD. METHODS: Several forms of AMD were treated surgically by vortex vein occlusion and were followed form March 2002 to March 2006. The basis of this...
