Minimal Invasive Sub-Tenon Anesthesia for Small Gauge Vitrectomy

ABSTRACT Purpose: Sharing the technique of minimal invasive Sub-Tenon anesthesia for pars plana vitrectomy. Methods: Case series, description of technique and instructional videos. Background: The standard Sub-Tenon cannula has a curved 19G shaft with a smooth flattened tip and can provide adequate anesthesia and akinesia of the globe, if the anesthetic is administered in the posterior Sub-Tenon space. This technique has proven to be safer...

Relationship of Pre-operative Optical Coherence Tomography with Intra-operative Characteristics in Epiretinal Membranes

ABSTRACT Purpose: With the advent of modern spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) instruments, anatomical changes that occur in the macular architecture both before and after ERM surgery can now be readily identified. However, the SD- OCT’s predictive value for surgical planning and for predicting ease or difficulty of surgical removal remains unclear. This study therefore aims to evaluate if specific characteristics...

Persistent Postoperative Cystoid Macular Edema After Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Retinal Detachment

Persistent Postoperative Cystoid Macular Edema After Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Retinal Detachment ABSTRACT Purpose: Postoperative cystoid macular edema (CME) can occur after intraocular surgery, including pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). In most cases CME remains subclinical or decreases spontaneously, however in some cases it can persist and be very difficult to treat, affecting the visual rehabilitation. In this study we aim to analyse the...
