Pneumatic Displacement of Submacular Hemorrhage: Long-term Results

ABSTRACT Introduction: The occurrence of a subretinal hemorrhage in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a serious complication that can impact the visual prognosis with a poor functional recovery. We report the results of sixteen patients treated with a protocol combining: vitrectomy, subretinal injection of r-TPA 0.025mg/0.3ml, subretinal injection of air, intravitreal injection of 0.05ml of bevacizumab and retinal tamponade with 20%...

Subretinal tPA and Pneumatic Displacement for Large Submacular Hematomas

ABSTRACT This is a series of 5 case with presenting with sudden drop in vision due to a large submacular blood collection. One eye was idiopathic, two due to blunt trauma and two related to age-related macular degeneration. Parsplana vitrectomy with posterior hyaloid was performed. This was followed by sub retinal injection of 75ug of tPA under the macula. Followed by sub retinal injection of few air bubbles. The eye was then filled with...

Cystoid Macular Edema and Visual Outcome After Pars Plana vitrectomy with Simultaneous Versus Sequential Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery for Epiretinal Membrane

ABSTRACT Purpose: To audit the frequency of cystoid macular edema (CME) and the level of vision after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), for idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM), and phacoemulsification surgery performed simultaneously or sequentially. Methods: Retrospective extraction and analysis of nationally standardized cataract surgery pathway dataset extracted from 8 hospitals in the UK that used the same electronic medical record (EMR)...

Relationship of Pre-operative Optical Coherence Tomography with Intra-operative Characteristics in Epiretinal Membranes

ABSTRACT Purpose: With the advent of modern spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) instruments, anatomical changes that occur in the macular architecture both before and after ERM surgery can now be readily identified. However, the SD- OCT’s predictive value for surgical planning and for predicting ease or difficulty of surgical removal remains unclear. This study therefore aims to evaluate if specific characteristics...

Double-staining for Epimacular Membranes. Is It Mandatory?

ABSTRACT Identification of Epimacular membranes (EMM): BBG stains ILM not EMM. Identification and complete peeling of the EMM is essential. Moreover; complete peeling of the underlying (surrounding) ILM is no less essential, to reduce possibility of recurrence of EMM. Technique: BBG is injected. The surgeon identifies the EMM as the unstained area that is surrounded by a stained area. In case of a visible EMM edge; the surgeon grasps and...
