Automated OCT-segmentation of All Layers of the Parafoveal Retina to Analyze the Changes After ERM-and ILM-peeling for Epiretinal Membranes

ABSTRACT Purpose: To analyze the changes in macular architecture after ERM (epiretinal membrane) and ILM (inner limiting membrane) peeling using the automated layer segmentation of the Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering) and to correlate the findings with the visual improvement after surgery. Methods: Retrospectively, the SD-OCT- data of 30 eyes that underwent pars plana surgery with ERM and ILM peeling were segmented and analyzed:...

Angio OCT with Manual Layer Segmentation to Analyze the Intraretinal Vascular Distortion in Eyes with Symptomatic Epiretinal Membranes

ABSTRACT Purpose: To analyze the changes of the vascular network of the superficial and deep vascular plexus in eyes with symptomatic epiretinal membranes (ERM) and distortion of the parafoveolar retina using the Angiography Module of the Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering). Methods: The data of the Angio-OCT scans (3 to 3 mm) of four eyes with symptomatic ERM and the four contralateral control eyes were manually segmented as automated...

Intravitreal Caspofungin in the Treatment of Fungal Endophthalmitis

Intravitreal Caspofungin in the Treatment of Fungal Endophthalmitis ABSTRACT Capsofungin is a recently introduced, synthetic antimycotic drug with excellent efficiency against candida and aspergillus species. For intravenous use less side effects were reported compared to Amphotericin B. In retinal cell cultures and in animal eyes, Capsofungin showed relatively low toxicity. In this case series we used intravitreal Capsofungin to treat...
