New Lutein-based Dyes vs Standard Synthetic Dyes in Vitreoretinal Interface Surgery

SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2016_New Lutein-based Dyes vs Standard Synthetic Dyes in Vitreoretinal Interface Surgery Purpose: To compare anatomic, functional, microperimetric and electrofunctional outcomes among patients affected by vitreoretinal interface-associated disorders undergoing vitrectomy + epiretinal membrane and/or internal limiting membrane peeling by using new lutein-based dyes or standard synthetic dyes. Materials and Methods: This is...

Double Inverted Flap Technique for Stage IV MH

Aim: To present a modification of the conventional inverted flap technique in stage IV macular hole surgery. Technique: After a core vitrectomy and trypan blue-assisted ILM peeling. Two vertical tears were created, temporal and nasal, to the fovea. Boht flaps were folded over the fovea creating a large ILM peeling. Air fluid exchange was followed by SF6 25% injection. Results: Six eyes of 6 patients were treated with this technique and...

My Way to Perform the Inverted Flap Technique for MH

Introduction: Full-thickness idiopathic macular holes are foveal anatomic defects with a complete interruption of all retinal layers. This results in a significant visual impact for the patient. Current surgical options are constantly under debate, particularly after the new International Vitreomacular Traction Study Group classification. Various surgical options have been proposed to boost the closure rates in this disorder, namely...

Why Did I Choose the Inverted ILM Flap Technique?

Simple surgical maneouver. Better anatomical results. Earlier visual recovery. Large and difficult macular holes may be succesfully closed with this technique. No additional equipment/ dye etc. is necessary. Enables hole closure in different indications (traumatic, high myopia). It allows succesful treatment of myopic macular hole with retinal detachment. Reoperations are predictable, logic and easy to perform. Temporal inverted ILM...

Clinical Experience of Ocriplasmin for Vitreomacular Traction and MH

Purpose: To evaluate the anatomical and functional results after ocriplasmin (JETREA, ThromboGenics NV, Iselin, NJ, USA) injection in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT) with or without macular hole (MH). Methods: Fifteen prospective patients with VMT were treated with a single ocriplasmin injection and followed-up at baseline, 1 week, 1, 3 and 6 months. ETDRS best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure and...

Morpho-functional Evaluation of the Ganglion Cell Complex After MH and ILM Peeled with Tano Diamond Scrapper

To evaluate the functionality and the thickness of the ganglion cell complex (GCC) in sixteen patients with full-thickness macular hole underwent ILM peeling and scraping with Tano Diamond Duster Membrane Scraper (DDMS). Three-port pars plana vitrectomy with a 23-gauge system was performed with ILM peeling. After Dual Blue staining, air was used as tamponade. Before performing fluid/air exchange, the hole edges were repeatetdly massaged...
