Two Different Options in the Treatment of Premacular Hemorrhage Secondary to Macroaneurysm

  SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Ines Coutinho Purpose: Premacular hemorrhage is one major cause of sudden visual loss and occurs in a variety of disorders, among others in retinal arterial macroaneurysms (RAM). Possible therapeutic options include observation, vitrectomy, intravitreal rT-PA injection or laser posterior hyaloidotomy. However, the best treatment is still controversial.

Spontaneous Resolution of Serous Retinal Detachment in a Patient with Congenital Retinal Macrovessel

Francisco J. Ascaso, Esther Nuñez, Laura Lavilla, María A. Del Buey, José A. Cristóbal (Zaragoza, Spain) Advantages: Macular neurosensory retinal detachments (RD) that present in an atypical fashion constitute a diagnostic challenge to retinal specialists. We recommend observation when they are associated with a congenital retinal macrovessel (CRM). Fluorescein angiography (FA) proves to be valuable in establishing a definitive...
