My Management of Optic Pit Retinal Detachment

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   The management of retinal detachment secondary to optic pit is still debated. My management consist of gas injection of 0.4 cc of pure SF6, face down positioning for 3-4 days, laser one week after gas injection. This strategy may solve or improve the retinal detachment. I counsel vitrectomy with ILM peeling and laser only when the first...

Macular Buckle for MTM: Retinoschisis and Macular RD with and Without MH

Myopic traction maculopathy is a pool of clinical pictures secondary to the posterior staphyloma, such as retinoschisis, macular detachment with macular hole or macular detachment without macular hole. Vitrectomy is often linked to relapse of retinal detachment or to iatrogenic macular holes. I present the alternative of using macular buckle, not only when the detachment is accompanied to a macular hole but also in cases of retinoschisis...

Intravitreal Implant of Dexamethasone for the Treatment of Refractory Vitrectomy Induced Cystoid Macular Edema

Advantages: Surgically induced cystoid macular edema (SICME) is a complication that can occur after various types of intra-ocular surgeries. SICME could be seen following glaucoma surgery, iridotomies, penetrating keratoplasty, scleral buckling, anterior vitrectomy and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). The incidence of SICME is usually higher in more complicated procedure (combined procedures). There are several articles documenting that SICME...

The Use of Complete Vitrectomy and ILM Peeling Using Infracyanine Dye + 0.8 ml Sf6 and 3 Days Gas Tamponade with Face-down Positioning in the Closure of Idiopathic Macular Hole: Our Experience

Methods: 23g valved trocars, no chandelier lights. Core vitrectomy, creation of PVD using Triamcinolone. Vitrectomy in medium periphery, ERM peeling without dyes, ILM peeling till vascular arcades using Infracyanine dye for 30 sec, confirmation of complete peeling using a second and eventual third dying with Infracyanine. Complete peripheral vitrectomy using Triamcinolone with particular attention at the sclerotomy sites. The peripheral...

Development of Full Thickness Macular Hole After Pars Plana Vitrectomy and Peeling of Epiretinal Membrane and Internal Limiting Membrane for Treatment of Idiopathic Lamellar Macular Hole

Advantages: To exhibit the characteristics of the idiopathic lamellar macular hole (ILMH) that evolves into full thickness macular hole (FTMH) after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and peeling of epiretinal membrane (ERM) and internal limiting membrane (ILM) and to discuss the indication and the timing of the surgical treatment. Methods: We report two cases of ILMH. Eyes underwent 23 gauge PPV and peeling of ERM and ILM with SF6 tamponade....

New Indication for the Macular Buckle in High Myopia

Myopic traction maculopathy associated with posterior staphyloma is not successfully treated with endobulbar approach. In fact vitrectomy is linked to a high rate of iatrogenic macular holes or to unsuccessful surgery. Macular buckle can be successfully used to treat not only macular detachment with macular hole, but also macular detachment without macular hole and macular foveoschisis. The presentation will show how a simpler and faster...

A New Role of Standard OCT: Diagnosis and Follow-up of Peripheral Retinal Diseases

Advantages: OCT has a peculiar role in guiding in diagnosis and management of peripheral retinal and choroidal lesions 1. Peripheral Retinoschisis: the differential diagnosis between retinoschisis and retinal detachment on retinoschisis is not easy and OCT is very helpful in understanding the nature of the lesion. Retinal detachment maybe a complication of retinoschisis and OCT helps in the identification of retinal detachment in a...

ME Secondary to Choroidal Neovascularization Associated with Choroiditis and Congenital Toxoplasmosis Chorioretinal Scars

Advantages: A successful corticosteroids treatment in a case of macular edema  (ME) secondary to choroidal neovascularization (CNV) associated with choroiditis and congenital toxoplasmosis chorioretinal scars. Methods: A 38-years-old myopic patient, affected to Beta Thalassemia Minor (HbA2 5.5%) presented sudden onset of photopsia, blurred vision in left eye (LE). The best visual acuity correct (BVCA) was 0.3. Clinical examination...
