Excision of Multiple Capillary Hemangiomas of Retina in a Patient with Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment and Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy

Introduction: Capillary hemangiomas of retina could be associated with rhegmatogenous retinal retachment (RRD) with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR), situation that is difficult to manage. The surgical outcome is poor and recurrences are common. Vitrectomy along with excision and removal of capillary hemangiomas of the retina can be can be a viable treatment option for these cases. Methods: A 25-year-old male was diagnosed to have...

Management of Posterior Dislocated Intra Ocular Lenses by Sutureless Scleral Fixation Using Fibrin Glue

Advantages: Posterior dislocation of an intraocular lens is an uncommon but serious complication of cataract surgery. This may occur intra-operatively or postoperatively due to large posterior capsular defects, weak zonules or trauma. In case of inadequate capsular support these lenses are repositioned by suture fixation or are removed and replaced by an anterior chamber IOL. Suturing of a dislocated IOL to the sclera is technically...

Sutureless Anchoring of Silicone Implants in Scleral Buckling Procedure for Management of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachments

Advantages: Sutures are required to anchor scleral implants during scleral buckling procedure for management of retinal detachment. Suturing of buckle elements is associated with several complications including: 1) Needle Perforation (leading to intra-ocular bleed, retinal breaks, choroidal hemorrhage, softening of globe and change of surgical plan), 2) Premature loosening of suture (leading to anterior migration of buckle and failure of...
