Spider IOL

Spider IOL EDITED FILM ABSTRACT The authors aim to describe a surgical technique for management of eyes without adequate capsular support, by implantation of a four-haptic hydrophilic acrylic foldable intraocular lens (IOL), Bausch & Lomb AKREOS Adapt AO® with a transscleral knotless zigzag suture. Surgical technique consists in small gauge pars plana vitrectomy, small corneal incision (between 2,0 mm and 2,4 mm) for iOL...

Anterior Segment Complications – Multiple Solutions

Anterior Segment Complications – Multiple Solutions EDITED FILM ABSTRACT The authors present the posterior segment approach for solving anterior segment complications in cataract surgery. From retro-pupillary iris-claw IOLs, to modified glued IOL technique or improvised scleral suspension with normal “in-the-bag” IOLs. The authors show their tricks and also the pros and cons for each technique. CONTACT...

Limitless Internal Limiting Membrane

Internal Limiting Membrane (ILM) peeling is actually a common surgical procedure performed in different retinal disorders like epiretinal membrane, macular edema of various etiology, foveosquisis, macular hole or sub-ILM hemorrage. Current treatment of macular hole is vitrectomy associated to complete IML peeling or inverted IML flap technique. However, macular hole closure failure can occur in few cases after standard procedure. In the...

Routine ILM Peeling for Macula off Retinal Detachment

To compare anatomical outcomes, visual acuity results and secondary epirretinal membrane formation rates in patients with macula-off retinal detachment with or without peeling of the internal limiting membrane (ILM). Retrospective study including all patients who underwent vitrectomy for macula-off retinal detachment during the year 2012 in our department. Patients were divided in 2 groups according to whether the ILM was peeled or not. ILM...

ILM Graft for Persistent MH After Primary Surgical Failure

Advantages: To describe a new surgical technique for macular hole closure using a patch of internal limiting membrane for persisting macular holes who have underwent pars plana vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling. Methods: Six eyes of 6 patients presented to our hospital with persistent macular holes after having underwent pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and gas tamponade. All patients...

Inverted ILM Flap in MH with Poor Prognosis

Advantages: Inverted ILM flap technique can achieve good anatomical and functional success in large, long standing macular holes or in non idiopathic macular holes (as macular holes related to myopia, post vitrectomy for retinal detachment or post ocular trauma). Methods: Since July 2009 inverted ILM flap technique has been performed in macular hole with poor anatomical prognosis. ILM is incompletly peeled around the border of the hole...

Suprachoroidal Macular Buckling for Myopic Traction Maculopathy

Advantages: Myopic traction maculopathy (MTM), also known as myopic foveoschisis, describes the schisis-like thickening in the outer layers of highly myopic eyes with posterior staphyloma. Other findings may also include inner retinal fluid, foveal detachment, and lamellar or full-thickness macular holes followed by progressive retinal detachment. Suprachoroidal buckling (SCB) procedure is a new approach for treating MTM by creating...
