Inverted ILM Flap for the Treatment of Myopic MH

Purpose: To describe the functional and anatomical results of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap for the treatment of macular holes with or without retinal detachment (RD) in highly myopic eyes. Methods: Twenty-nine eyes affected by macular hole, associated (n=6) or not (n=23) with retinal detachment in high myopia (average axial length 26.80 mm) underwent PPV with inverted ILM...

A Polymer-based Interface Restores Light Sensitivity in Rat Blind Retinas

Purpose: Sight restoration is one of the new frontiers for prosthetic devices that enable the electrical stimulation o f neurons. In particular, diseases that affect the retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptors but preserve the inner retinal layers are preferential targets for implantation of visual prostheses. We recently discovered that primary neurons can be successfully grown onto a transparent photovoltaic organic polymer and...

Combined Therapy for Recurrent Macular Edema Following RVO

Purpose: To report 4 cases of recurrence of macular edema (ME) after treatment with dexamethasone intravitreal implant 0.7 mg (Ozurdex; Allergan, Inc, Irvine, CA) in patients with ME following branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) or central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Methods: Retrospective case-report. Results: 4 subjects suffering from ME following both BRVO (n=3) and CRVO (n=1) were treated with dexamethasone intravitreal implant...

Bleb-like Syndrome After Sclera Buckle Surgery for Retinal Detachment

Maria Chiara Freno*, Maurizio Mete, Grazia Pertile (Negrar, Italy) Background: Small bleb-like subretinal lesions (bleb-like syndrome) have been shown to be a relatively common finding after scleral buckling (SB) for retinal detachment (RD), while it is very uncommon after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Although bleb-like lesions were previously reported as small pigment epithelium detachment, OCT has demonstrated that they are small focal...

Vitreoretinal Surgery for Retinal Detachment in Retinal capillary Hemangioma (RCH)

Maurizio Mete*, Grazia Pertile (Negrar, Italy) Retinal capillary haemangioma (RCH) is one of the most common expressions of Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. In case of small- or medium-sized RCHs (up to 2 disk diameters), the standard treatment remains laser photocoagulation or cryotherapy. Various treatments have been proposed such as brachytherapy, external beam radiotherapy, transpupillary thermotherapy, photodynamic therapy and...

Management of Massive Suprachoroidal Hemorrhage

Grazia Pertile, Maurizio Mete (Negrar, Italy) Advantages: 2 steps management of massive suprachoroidal haemorrhage permits to reduce the risk of severe PVR. Methods: During the development of a massive suprachoroidal haemorrhage the vitreous is pressed anteriorly and that can cause its incarceration in the surgical incisions, it can remain trapped in the anterior chamber or it may stick on the posterior surface of the iris. Choroidal...
