Central Serous Retinopathy: Photodynamic Therapy Real-life Results

Central Serous Retinopathy: Photodynamic Therapy Real-life Results ABSTRACT Introduction: Central Serous Retinopathy (CSC) is a multifactorial pathology with a complex and non-totally clear pathogenesis. Most of them are auto limited with spontaneous resolution and a favourable prognosis. In some cases, serous macular detachment can remain or recur with progressive visual acuity loss. Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) based on half-dose or...

ERM and ILM Removal in Only One Step: 2 Years Follow-up on Anatomical and Functional Results

ERM and ILM Removal in Only One Step: 2 Years Follow-up on Anatomical and Functional Results ABSTRACT Introduction: Epiretinal membranes (ERM) are fibrocellular proliferations on the surface of the retina, with contractile properties, that cause metamorphopsia and visual loss. ERM surgery is a demanding state-of-the-art procedure, consisting of ERM, and usually internal limiting membrane (ILM) removal. The use of multiple dyes, or the...

Autologous Transplantation of Choroid and Retina: Reality or Fiction?

Autologous Transplantation of Choroid and Retina: Reality or Fiction? ABSTRACT The autologous transplantation of retina has been reported to treat chronic macular holes. The retina seems to integrate and regain function. Atrophic maculopathies still remain untreatable diseases. An attempt to treat macular atrophic changes with autologous choroidal and retina transplant has been made in 5 patients followed with collection of functional...

Macular Edema Management with Multiple IVTs Required: There is No Reason Why ILM Peeling Should Not Be Considered at One Time

Macular Edema Management with Multiple IVTs Required: There is No Reason Why ILM Peeling Should Not Be Considered at One Time ABSTRACT Purpose: A discussion why ILM peeling should be proposed to every patient with a recurrent or chronic Macula Edema. Discussion: All kinds of RVO, BRVO, or DR could be associated to a recurrent or chronic ME. EVRS ME study teached us possibility of very good results with ILM peeling, and efficiency...

Surgical Treatment of Optic Pit Retinal Detachment with an Inverted Flap of Intern Limitant Membrane

Surgical Treatment of Optic Pit Retinal Detachment with an Inverted Flap of Intern Limitant Membrane ABSTRACT Optic pit is a rare ocular malformation that can lead to retinal detachment. Several treatments have been proposed including gas tamponade, laser and vitrectomy. We propose an another approach to other forms of treatments. A flap of intern limiting membrane is added in order to isolate the optic pit from the vitreous cavity. The...
