Removal of a Submacular Perflurocarbon Bubble

Stratos Gotzaridis, Elias Georgalas (Athens, Greece) Advantages: The use of perflurocarbons liquids leads to unpleasant complications such as subretinal bubbles. The problem is getting more serious when the bubble is located in the area of foveola, which results in severe reduction of the vision. We present a case of removal of a subretinal foveolar perflurocarbons bubble. Methods: Anatomical and functional results of treatment of a case...

Macular Fold or Macula Off

Zoran Tomic (Uppsala, Sweden) Advantages: Unfolding the macular fold that may occur as a seldom seen but unpleasant complication after primary vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD), can recover patient’s poor visual acuity in otherwise successfully reattached retina. Methods: Anatomical and functional results of treatment of total five cases with macular fold that we had in the last three years in a consecutive series...

Management of Subretinal Perfluorocarbon Liquid

Barbara Parolini, Grazia Pertile Advantages: Perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) may slip under the retina in complex cases of PFCL/silicone oil exchange with large retinotomies.  External scleral massage with a scleral depressor may help in extruding PFCL residues from the subretinal space. Methods: External scleral massage with scleral depressor in order to move the PFCL residues in the direction of the retinotomy and extrude the residues...
