Fractal Dimensional Analysis of Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography in Chronic Diabetic Macular

ABSTRACT Purpose: To determine the effect of sustained-release fluocinolone acetonide (0,2 µg/day FAc) intravitreal implant in the superficial capillary complex, imaged by optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) in patients with diabetic macular edema (DME), using the fractal dimension analysis. Methods: A prospective analysis was performed in one eye with a chronic refractory DME treated with FAc intravitreal implant. OCTA...

Vitrectomy and ILM Peeling With and Without Fovea-sparing IML in Bilateral Myopic Foveoschisis

SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2016_Vitrectomy and ILM Peeling With and Without Fovea-sparing IML in Bilateral Myopic Foveoschisis Natalia Ferreira The authors describe the case of a 39-year-old female, with high myopia and bilateral myopic foveoschisis. She underwent an anterior chamber phakic IOL implantation in both eyes, 6 years before. She started to complain of decreased visual acuity and metamorphopsia since a few months ago and she was referred...

Limitless Internal Limiting Membrane

Internal Limiting Membrane (ILM) peeling is actually a common surgical procedure performed in different retinal disorders like epiretinal membrane, macular edema of various etiology, foveosquisis, macular hole or sub-ILM hemorrage. Current treatment of macular hole is vitrectomy associated to complete IML peeling or inverted IML flap technique. However, macular hole closure failure can occur in few cases after standard procedure. In the...

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...
