Incidence and Risk Factors of Cystoid Macular Edema After Retinal Detachment Surgery

Purpose : To evaluate the incidence rate of cystoid macular edema (CME) after uncomplicated primary operation on retinal detachment (RD) and to identify risk factors associated with postoperative CME. Methods : Retrospective interventional case series of consecutive patients that underwent one RD repair either by primary vitrectomy or external procedure during a 3 years period starting on January 2012. Postoperative CME was defined as...

Validity of Aqueous Flare Measurement in Predicting Proliferative Vitreoretinopathy in Patients with Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment

Purpose: To investigate aqueous flare as a preoperative predictor for later proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) development in patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) and to determine the validity of this measurement in patients at low clinical risk for postoperative PVR. Methods: This study included 100 eyes of 100 patients who underwent surgery for primary RD. Aqueous flare was determined preoperatively with a laser...

On the other hand, a retinal detachment presents an additional challenge to the vitreoretinal specialist in this situation. The authors present a clinical case with both these simultaneous conditions. Case Report: We present the case of a male 75 year-old patient, with a...

Managing Optic Pit – The Right Stuff !

A video showing how the authors have used various techniques to manage optic pit with vitrectomy over the past 15 years. Surgical modifications to standard vitrectomy are shown and the authors comment on the various techniques used and the results obtained. They also refer to the literature, which prompted them to develop a new approach to treat the condition. The latest modification involves “stuffing” the optic pit – with...

A Macula-on RD with Multiple Giant Tears

Introduction: Retinal detachments with giant retinal tears pose a significant challenge, even to the most experienced vitreoretinal specialists. The extent of the primary lesion complicates management and tamponade choices, carrying the risk of the flap folding over post-operatively and re-detaching the retina. The authors present one case of a macula-on retinal detachment with multiple giant tears. Case report: The authors present the...
