Scleral Buckling…Are you Crazy!!! Back to the Future!

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   We have developed a new scleral buckling exoplant that can be inserted in minutes with one anterior suture which provides 4 clock hours of circumferential buckling.It is removed in three weeks, usually in the office. It resolves most problems associated with scleral buckling including strabismus, induced refractive error, and buckle...

Targeted PRP Directed By Optos Wide Field Fluorescein Angiography To Treat Severe DME

12 Patients with severe DME (CMT > 350 microns) were prospectively enrolled. Wide field Optos fluorescein angiography to determine areas of poor peripheral perfusion. Patients then underwent an injection of Avastin and PRP directed to areas of poor perfusion. Two more monthly injections of Avastin were given. If at the end of 4 months observation period DME persisted, wide field angiography was repeated and more PRP was applied to areas...

Macular Hole Surgery Without Face-down Positioning Using the Latest Vitreoretinal Techniques

Purpose: To evaluate the success rate of surgical repair of full-thickness macular holes without face-down positioning in a large series. Methods: A retrospective chart review of 81 consecutive patients with idiopathic full-thickness macular holes <750m in diameter were treated with standard surgical techniques by a single surgeon (PET).

Sutureless Scleral Buckling

The purpose of the presentation is to describe a new temporary device for non drainage scleral buckling which requires no suturing. The device is left in place for 4-7 days. It is used to treat retinal detachments secondary to retinal breaks not exceeding one clock hour in any quadrant where there is sufficient orbital support. It can be used in phakic patients with inferior breaks or young patients without resulting in buckling induced...
