Intravitreal Ocriplasmin in DME with Vitreomacular Adhesion in Eyes with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

Intravitreal Ocriplasmin in DME with Vitreomacular Adhesion in Eyes with Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy ABSTRACT Purpose: To evaluate the efficacy of a single intravitreal injection of ocriplasmin (125 µg) in eyes with diabetic macular edema (DME) and focal or loose broad vitreomacular adhesion/traction (VMA) in cases where proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) was present and to compare these results with those obtained in eyes...

Intravitreal Implants for Treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema in Vitrectomized Patients

Intravitreal Implants for Treatment of Diabetic Macular Edema in Vitrectomized Patients ABSTRACT Purpose: To evaluate and compare the functional, anatomical and safety response after the long-acting intravitreal sustained release fluocinolone acetonide (FAc) implant (0.2 µg/day, ILUVIEN®) and dexamethasone implant (Ozurdex® 0.7 mg) in the treatment of diabetic macular edema (DME) in vitrectomized eyes. Setting: Department of...

Safety and Efficacy of Intravitreal Ocriplasmin in DME with Vitreomacular Adhesion

Introduction: There are many reports supporting that the relationship of the posterior cortical vitreous to the macula plays a role in the development of diabetic macular edema (DME). Until recently, the only treatment option available for vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) was vitrectomy. Given the risks for vitrectomy, the standard of care has generally been to wait until visual symptoms from VMT have deteriorated enough to justify the...

My Way Treating Diabetic Retinopathy in a Vitrectomized Eye

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   With either diabetic macular edema or with proliferative retinopathy we should ascertain that all retinal laser treatment needed has been done and above all emphasize the importance of a good metabolic control to achieve good results. We certainly should not give up and use anti-angiogenic or corticosteroid intra-vitreal injections as...

Macular Macroaneurysm: Case Report

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Ana Figueiredo Introduction: Retinal macroaneurysms are described as idiopathic, acquired, round dilations of major retina arterioles, usually singular and unilateral. If located at the posterior pole, they may be associated with macular exudation and hemorrhage resulting in decreased visual acuity. Systemic hypertension is the most common associated risk factor. Pathogenesis of retinal arterial macroaneurysms is not fully...

Use of Ranibizumab for Neovascular Glaucoma in a Patient with Familial Amyloidosis Transthyretin V30M Related

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Ines Casal_3 Introduction: Familial amyloidosis TTR V30M is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder caused by extracellular amyloid deposition in nerves, solid organs and in the eye. Several ocular manifestations were reported such as abnormal conjunctival vessels, keratoconjunctivitis sicca, amyloid deposits at the pupillary margin, glaucoma, deposition of amyloid at the anterior capsula of the lens, vitreous opacities...

Inverted ILM Flap in MH with Poor Prognosis

Advantages: Inverted ILM flap technique can achieve good anatomical and functional success in large, long standing macular holes or in non idiopathic macular holes (as macular holes related to myopia, post vitrectomy for retinal detachment or post ocular trauma). Methods: Since July 2009 inverted ILM flap technique has been performed in macular hole with poor anatomical prognosis. ILM is incompletly peeled around the border of the hole...

My Way of Treating Diabetic ME

Diabetic macular edema is a multifactorial disorder that needs a multimodal and individualized approach. First we must understand the main mechanism behind each particular case (ischemic, inflammatory, tractional or even mixed) and then select the best treatment option. If it is not possible to clarify the main mechanism (which can change with time, as the natural history of this ocular disease) we should always choose the best way that...

Secondary Foldable IOL Knotless Scleral Fixation

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   We will be presenting on knotless scleral fixation of luxated foldable IOLs and for secondary implantation in aphakic eyes in eyes without zonular support. This technique provides the advantage of avoiding iris manipulations, is perfomed through a small corneal incision and does not require the need to order or stock special IOL types....
