Impact of Ocular Complications on Visual Outcome in Adult Patients with Uveitis

ABSTRACT Purpose: To report factors that predict visual loss in adults with uveitis. Also, to analyse the influence of baseline and newly diagnosed ocular complications during follow-up on visual outcome. Methods: Retrospective cohort study of 474 patients with uveitis (655 eyes) followed for at least one month attended between May 1989 and December 2012. Kaplan-Meier curves were set to analyze the change in best-corrected visual acuity...

Functional and Anatomical Outcomes of Superior Inverted Internal Limiting Membrane Flap in Macular Hole Surgery

ABSTRACT Introduction: In 2010, Michalewska et al. described the inverted ILM flap technique for large macular hole (minimum diameter 400 micras).  This technique was reported to increase the anatomical closure rates and functional results of large macular holes and myopic macular holes. Various modifications have been described since it was introduced but more studies are required to establish which technique of ILM flap achieves better...

May the Force Be with You: Gravity Makes the Inverted ILM Flap Technique Easier

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT Introduction: Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) combined with peeling of the internal limiting membrane (ILM) is used as a conventional procedure for treatment of a macular hole (MH). After Michalewska et al. in 2010 described the inverted ILM flap technique for large MH several modifications have been described, including the use of autologous lens capsular flap, and autologous neurosensory retinal flap or retinal...
