Blood-aqueous Barrier Breakdown and Retinal Detachment Prognosis

Didier Ducournau (Nantes, France) 1,000 retinal detachments were studied with the laser cell flare meter (Kowa machine); 40 measurements of inflammatory cells in the anterior chamber and of flare were performed (5 measurements at D-1, D+1, D+2, D+3, D+4, D+5, D+6, D+21) Results: • The levels of cells and flare are elevated the day before surgery with further increases noted after surgery (peak at 3 days) with a slow regression towards...

Blood-aqueous Barrier Breakdown and Retinal Detachment Surgery

Salim Ben Yahia*, Rim Kahloun, Sonia Attia, Sana Khochtali, Sonia Zaouali, Moncef Khairallah (Monastir, Tunisia) Advantages: To monitor retinal detachment surgery by anterior chamber inflammatory activity. Methods: Twenty-seven consecutive patients were examined before, 1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks and 4 weeks after surgery for retinal detachment. The anterior chamber inflammatory activity was evaluated using the laser flare...

Schisis Detachment Pathogenesis

Daniel Baron (Nantes, France) The schisis detachment is a retinoschisis that has been complicated by a retinal detachment. The retinal detachment occurs if the external leaf rises above the deep plane. The rhegmatogenic detachment requires a tear in the external leaf. The conjunction with an internal leaf tear increases the risk of schisis detachment. There are conditions so that the tear of the external leaf creates a retinal detachment:...

Vitreous Hydration after Phacoemulsificaction: Its Possible Role in the Pseudophakic Vitreo-Retinal Detachment

Author: Juan Yepez, Maracaibo, Venezuela Objective: This video animation is to demonstrate the passage of fluid from the anterior chamber to the vitreous cavity through the zonules during uneventful phacoemulsification of a cataract. Methods: Two tests were used to demonstrate the passage of fluid through the zonules during cataract phacoemulsification: 1) The vitreous cavity filling was measured after combined phaco-vitrectomy in the 40...

The Role of Immune Mechanisms in Development of Complicated Forms of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment

Sergienko A., Chichur D. Advantages: Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment (RRD) has a strong trend towards recurrent course and bilateral lesions. Our investigations have revealed atypical disease course and systemic nature of lesions in patients with complicated RRD course. Goal. Determination of the role of immune mechanisms in development of RRD complicated forms. Materials & Methods: We observed 70 patients with unilateral RRD, 80...
