Full Thickness Macular Hole Surgery After Three Intravitreal Injections of Aflibercept

Full Thickness Macular Hole Surgery After Three Intravitreal Injections of Aflibercept ABSTRACT Background: The pathogenesis of macular hole formation is widely accepted as a tractional force at the vitreo-retinal interface in fovea. Also treatment of macular hole is widely accepted, vitrectomy and ILM peeling. We report a case of macular hole surgery after three intravitreous aflibercept injection as a treatment of that same macular...

Pneumatic Displacement of Submacular Hemorrhage

Pneumatic Displacement of Submacular Hemorrhage ABSTRACT Advantage: Pneumatic displacement of large submacular hemorrhage in hemorrhagic AMD (and similar conditions) using intraocular injection of C3F8 leads to a fast relief, enables blood reabsorption and opens the way to the continuation of AMD treatment. We do not use any additional medicaments as TPA but continue with anti-VEGF therapy in most cases. Method: The pneumatic displacement...

A Rare Complication of Intravitreal Injection with Anterior Chamber Paracentesis: Inadvertent Retinal Trauma Induced by the Needle

A Rare Complication of Intravitreal Injection with Anterior Chamber Paracentesis: Inadvertent Retinal Trauma Induced by the Needle ABSTRACT We report four cases of traumatic retinal lesion related to the needle used for anti-VEGF intravitreal injection. An aqueous paracentesis was performed before the injection in all cases. A 30-gauge needle with a ½ inch long tip was always used. In three cases, the distal end of the needle was...
