Temporal Inverted Flap Technique for MH Closure. A Comparative Study

Advantage: The aim of this study is to present the comparative non-randomised study of Temporal Inverted Flap Technique vs. Classic ILM Flap Technique for Macular Hole Closure. Methods: This is a single center, comparative study. 43 eyes of 39 patients mean age 67, were operated with classic ILM Flap technique (Group A) and 44 eyes of 40 patients, mean age 66, were operated on using only a temporal flap of ILM (Group B). In group B, ILM...

Are Macular Holes only a Vitreoretinal Interface Disease?

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Advantages: The aim of this study is to report on choroidal thickness and the morphology of the outer choroidoscleral boundary in Swept Source OCT in patients with full thickness macular holes before and after surgery. The secondary goal is to compare the morphology of the choroid with their fellow eyes and with healthy...

Inverted Internal Limiting Membrane Flap Technique in Macular Hole Associated with Pathological Myopia

Advantages: To present the anatomic and functional results of vitrectomy with the “Inverted ILM Flap Technique” in myopic macular holes without retinal detachment. Methods: A prospective, interventional study of 19 myopic eyes with a spherical equivalent greater than -6D with macular holes in 18 consecutive patients. Pre- and postoperative evaluation of visual acuity and SD-OCT images was performed. The main outcome measure was...

Reoperations of Macular Holes Treated with Inverted ILM Flap Technique

Advantages: To present causes and surgical technique for reoperations in failed macular hole surgery in eyes previously operated with the inverted ILM flap technique. Methods: 11 eyes (6% of cases operated between 01.2008- 12.2011). During repeated surgery in all cases it was found that the inverted ILM flap reapproximated into its original position and did not close the macular hole. The ILM flap was put once again over the macular hole...

Temporal Inverted Internal Limiting Membrane Flap for Macular Hole

Advantages: To present a new surgical technique, in which Internal Limiting membrane (ILM) is not removed only in the papillomacular bundle during vitrectomy for macular hole. Methods: This is a prospective study of 80 eyes of 80 patients. 40 eyes with macular holes were operated with the Inverted ILM technique (Group 1). 40 eyes were operated with modification of this technique, in which ILM was removed only on the temporal side of the...

Correlation of Normal Choroidal Thickness and Volume Measurements with Axial Length and Age Using Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Low Coherence Reflectometry

Advantages: To report normal choroidal thickness and volume measurement in healthy eyes using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Additionally to correlate the results with axial length, age and refractive error. Methods: Prospective observational study of 122 healthy eyes. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination. Imaging was performed with SS-OCT. Choroidal thickness and volume measurements were...

Lamina Suprachoroidea & Suprachoroidal Space Delineating the Outer Margin of the Choroid in Swept-Source OCT

Advantages: To define the morphology of outer choroidal margins in swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods: This is a prospective observational study of 180 eyes: 20 eyes of healthy volunteers, 20 eyes of myopic patients and 20 eyes from each of the following groups: macular hole (before and after surgery), lamellar macular hole, epiretinal membranes, drusen, dry age related macular degeneration, neovascular age...
