Same Day Vitrectomy to Treat Endophthalmitis in the Course of Anti-VEGF Treatment for AMD Can Save the Eye and Restore Visual Acuity

ABSTRACT Purpose: To present effects of long-term anti-VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) treatment in eyes after vitrectomy for endophthalmitis in neovascular age related macular degeneration. Methods: Core vitrectomy, with intravitreal vancomycin was performed. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography was performed monthly both before and after surgery in the follow- up mode. Anti-VEGF injections were continued after...

New Instruments for Vitreoretinal Surgery

ABSTRACT Purpose: To present the new instruments for vitreoretinal (VR) surgery. Methods: 1. to modify the conventional tacking forceps for array tacking during Argus II implantation on the right eyes, in order to perform the tacking with the right hand; 2. to modify 25-gauge ILM forceps for intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) assisted VR surgery in order to reduce the shadowing during surgery. The prototypes of the new...

Vitreous Biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease in Patients Undergoing Vitrectomy and Cognitive Function Assessment

ABSTRACT Objective: The objective of this study was to determine if known biomarkers of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) can correlate with cognitive function or impairment in patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy for various vitreoretinal conditions. Purpose: There is a pressing need for sensitive and specific diagnostic tests that can detect Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in its preclinical stages. Prior studies have shown the...

Vitreous Cytokine Levels in Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy and Cataracts

ABSTRACT Purpose: The relationship between vitreous cytokines and ocular disease is not well understood, and exploring its interactions may identify future alternate therapies. The purpose of this study is to identify the vitreous cytokines in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) and age-related cataract (ARC). We performed a prospective observational study of vitreous sampl es from patients undergoing vitrectomy surgery and analyzing...

Opacification of Hydrophilic Acrylic IOLs Following Pars Plana Vitrectomy

ABSTRACT IOL opacification as a result of superficial calcification in the pupillary area has first been described after corneal surgery, especially after DMEK- or DSAEK procedures with intracameral air or gas application. Single case reports with a similar IOL opacification pattern after vitrectomy with gas or silicone oil tamponade have been published. A common feature is that only hydrophilic acrylic IOLs are affected. We present a...
