Anterior Chamber Depth Changes at Different Stages of Treatment of Eyes with Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Complicated by Ciliochoroidal Detachment

ABSTRACT Purpose: To reveal the possibility of a connection between the anterior chamber depth of eyes of with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) complicated by ciliochoroidal detachment (CCD), the clinical characteristics of the disease and the nature of its changes at different stages of treatment. Setting: Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in 0.5 – 4.5% of cases is complicated by ciliochoroidal detachment (CCD),...

Neurotrophic Keratopathy Following Retinal Detachment Surgery Combined with Endolaser Photocoagulation

ABSTRACT We report a series of 3 cases with neurotrophic keratopathy after pars plana vitrectomy combined with endolaser photocoagulation. Three patients who had pars plana vitrectomy with different indications were identified. On follow up, all patients were diagnosed with neurotrophic keratopathy. Two of the patients underwent amniotic membrane transplantation for the treatment of resistant neurotrophic corneal ulcers. Neurotrophic...

Changes of Physico-chemical Properties of Silicone Oil Associated with a Retinal Detachment

ABSTRACT The source material for our study was 23 samples of silicone oil, aspirated from the vitreous cavities of the eyes of patients after a tamponade about the rheumatogenic and traction retinal detachment. The average life of silicone oil in the eye was 3.5 months. In all cases, a 1300 cSt – viscosity Oxane silicone oil, Baush + Lomb, the UK, was used for tamponade. All samples were stabilized, resulting in colloidal systems...

Analysis of Amount and Density of Residual Silicone Oil Fragments in Vitreous Cavity After Retinal Detachment Surgery

ABSTRACT Purpose: To analyze the amount of residual silicon oil (SO) fragments in vitreous cavity after retinal detachment surgery. Methods: Twenty-six patients (26 eyes) (mean age 47. years) underwent ultrasound examination after SO removal (Oxane SO 1300, Bousch&Lomb). The amount of hyperechogenic silicone oil fragments in vitreous cavity was analyzed in four quadrants of multiple scans using method of neural circuits. Results: In all...

Outcomes of Retinal Detachment Surgery with SF6 Only, Regardless of Detachment Configuration and Break Location

ABSTRACT Introduction: The choice of gas tamponade and posturing regimes in retinal detachment (RD) repair vary amongst surgeons. Break location, configuration of the detachment and grade of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) are the main variables influencing a surgeon’s choice. Purpose: To evaluate the success rate of primary retinal detachment repair using only SF6 tamponade with 2 days of post-operative posturing, regardless of...
