Intravitreal Chopping of Dropped Nucleus with 23g “Acar Forceps”

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT The management of nucleus drop is with vitrectomy. Inflammation is generally increased in these eyes after complicated cataract surgery, and posterior hyaloid is often attached. Vitrectomy probes are usually not efficient to remove these hard materials, and endophacofragmentation is often necessary. Endophacofragmentation probes are usually not available in 23g, and routine phaco probe without a sleeve can be used...

Inverted Flap of Internal Limiting Membrane for Treatment of Poor Prognosis Macular Holes

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT Inverted flap of internal limiting membrane for treatment of poor prognosis macular holes. In this video we describe the surgical technique of the inverted flap of internal limiting membrane. The surgical technique includes a complete vitrectomy, realization of a flap of internal limiting membrane and fluid/gas exchange. In this video we show 5 examples of macular holes surgery using this technique. The realization of...

Management of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment with Proliferative Vitreo Retinopathy Grade C

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT Purpose: To evaluate the outcomes of surgery for Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment with Proliferative Vitreo Retinopathy Grade C. Methods: 279 eyes of 268 patients suffering from rhegmetagenous retinal detachment with PVR grade C were included in the study. All patients underwent 23 gauge pars plana vitrectomy, pvr peeling, with encircling buckle or and retinectomy, endolaser retinopexy and 500cs silicon oil depending...

Retina Transplant in a Case of Extreme PVR with Re RD and Large Macular Hole

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT This young patient was referred to us after three failed surgeries for retinal detachment. She presented to us with extreme PVR and a  huge macular hole. The video demonstrates the removal of membranes – epi and subretinal using innovative bimanual techniques. Retinectomy was done nasally under PFCL and the tissue was dragged and placed on the macula to cover the large macular hole. After 360⁰  endolaser...

Extreme PVR – Bimanual Techniques

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) is the most common cause of failure in the management of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). PVR occurs in 5–10 % of retinal detachment (RD) surgeries. In cases of severe PVR the prognosis is significantly poorer, considering anatomical and visual outcomes. In these technically challenging situations I have tried to demonstrate through this video, innovative bimanual...

Sutureless Trocar Cannula Based Transconjunctival Intrascleral Intraocular Carlevale Lens Fixation

EDITED FILM ABSTRACT Up to recent times anterior chamber IOL and iris or scleral fixated IOL have been the techniques of choice in patients without capsular support, aphakic or with a dislocated intraocular lens. These techniques however, are well known for possible complications such as corneal decompensation, late dislocation or suture extrusion through the conjunctiva. In our presentation we illustrate a novel surgical technique of...
