Biomarkers and Predictors for Functional and Anatomic Outcomes for Pars Plana Vitrectomy and Peeling of the Internal Limiting Membrane in Naïve Diabetic Macular Edema. The VITAL Study

ABSTRACT Aim: To evaluate the role of small gauge PPV as a first line treatment for naïve DME with a follow-up of 24 months and to investigate biomarkers and predictive factors for visual and anatomical outcome. Patients & Method: One hundred and twenty eyes, from 120 patients with a mean age of 67.0±14.9 years, were evaluated. Results: The mean baseline BCVA was 0.66 ± 0.14 logMAR, improved to 0.52 ± 0.21 logMAR after 12...

The ILM Peeling Effect in Wet-AMD

ABSTRACT Aim: To evaluate the role of small gauge PPV and ILM peeling in patients diagnosed with different type of CNV secondary to ARMD. Patients & Method: Nineteen eyes of 16 patients, with a mean age of 69.5±8.9 years, were retrospectively evaluated during a minimum of 24 months. Results: The mean baseline BCVA was 0.91 ± 0.12 logMAR, improved to 0.82 ± 0.19 logMAR after 12 months (p<0.01) and remained stable over 24...

Double Inverted Flap Technique for Stage IV MH

Aim: To present a modification of the conventional inverted flap technique in stage IV macular hole surgery. Technique: After a core vitrectomy and trypan blue-assisted ILM peeling. Two vertical tears were created, temporal and nasal, to the fovea. Boht flaps were folded over the fovea creating a large ILM peeling. Air fluid exchange was followed by SF6 25% injection. Results: Six eyes of 6 patients were treated with this technique and...

Transscleral Fixation of IOL in Cases Without Capsular Support

Purpose: To report the results of a technique of sutureless intrascleral fixation of a three-piece foldable hydrophobic acrylic posterior chamber intraocular lens (PC IOL) in the absence of capsular support. Technique: The foldable hydrophobic acrylic three-piece IOL is inserted through a conventional sub-2.8mm clear corneal incision and haptic are fixated into scleral tunnels at the limbus. This technique is suitable for cases of iris...
