Outcome of IVT of Ocriplasmin for Symptomatic Vitreomacular Adhesion

SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2016_Outcome of IVTY of Ocriplasmin for Symptomatic Vitreomacular Adhesion Mostafa Elgohary Purpose: To evaluate the rate of release of vitreomacular adhesion (VMA), anatomical changes and visual outcome following intravitreal ocriplasmin injection for the treatment of symptomatic VMA with and without full-thickness macular hole (FTMH). Methods: This is a retrospective, interventional, case-series of 12 eyes of 11...

Vitrectomy for Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Associated with Degenerative Retinoschisis

I will be presenting the technique of vitrectomy in a patient with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment associated with vitreous haemorrhage and degenerative retinoschisis. The technique involved 3-port pars plana vitrectomy, completion of posterior vitreous detachment, deroofing of the retinechisis area, fluid air exchange and cryotehrapy and laser retinopexy. Gas tamponade (C2F6) was used. The retina was successfully reattached and visual...

Scleral Buckling, PPV & Pneumatic Retinopexy: An Individualised Approach

The surgical approach to repairing retinal detachment (RD) has been a success story since Jules Gonin identified the retinal breaks to be the cause of retinal detachment. The techniques however have evolved over the years. Three techniques in particular, namely scleral buckling (SB), pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and pneumatic retinopexy (PR), have been proved to be most successful and are therefore used around the world by almost all...

Sticky Silicone

I will be presenting 2 cases of adherent silicone oil (1000cs) to the retina. In one patient, the silicone oil led to entrapment of heavy liquid fluid underneath the oil and that in turn led to foveal oedema and loss of central vision. The oil was removed 10 days later but the foveal vision never recovered. In the second patient, the adherent silicone oil was displaced and removed using a combination of heavy liquid fluid and fluid-air...

Outcome of Submacular Hemorrhage Displacement & Drainage Following Injection of Intravitreal Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA)

Alexandra Dumitrescu Dragan_Mostafa Elgohary_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015 Purpose: To evaluate visual acuity and anatomical outcome in patients with submacular hemorrhage due to neovascular age-related macular degeneration treated with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) intravitreal injection and anti-VEGF medications followed 24-48 hours later by perfluoropropane (C3F8) or sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas injection or pars plana vitrectomy and...
