Bilateral Simultaneous Branch Retinal Artery Occlusion by Septic Emboli in Klebsiella Pneumoniae Endogenous Endophthalmitis: A First Case Report

Ah Ran Cho_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015 A branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) by a septic embolus in bacterial endogenous endophthalmitis has not been previously reported. The authors present the first case of a patient with bilateral simultaneous BRAO by evident septic emboli as a complication of nephrogenic Klebsiella endophthalmitis. A 50 year-old Asian female with a history of type 2 diabetes mellitus transferred to a tertiary care...

Surgical Embolectomy for Branch Retinal Artery Occlusion

Purpose: To report a clinical case of surgical treatment of acute hemi-central retinal artery occlusion. Methods: A 52 years old female with hemi-central retinal artery occlusion due to calcific emboli (CE) on her right eye (RE) was operated on the 7th day after the event. The combined procedure that included phacoemulsification, intraocular lens implantation, pars plana vitrectomy and embolectomy followed fluid/air exchange was performed....

Cilioretinal Artery Occlusion with Non Ischemic Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

Maha Shahin_RETINA PHOTO 2015 A healthy 40-year-old man with history of amaurosis fugax in the left eye. 2 days later, he developed scotoma. Examination revealed retinal whitening along the course of one of the cilioretinal arteries and scattered retinal hemorrhages. On fluorescein angiogram of the affected eye, the cilioretinal arteries filled normally. There was marked delay in the filling of the central retinal vein. The patient had no...

OCT Findings in Central Retinal Artery Occlusion

The author describes optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a patient with central retinal artery occlusion by conducting a retrospective review of one case. Central retinal artery occlusion shows a distinct pattern on OCT images. In the acute phase, OCT images demonstrate the increased reflectivity and thickness of the inner retina and a corresponding decrease of reflectivity in the outer layer of the retina and retinal pigment...

Intravitreal Diclofenac for Macular Edema (ME) in Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO)

Advantage: Various modes of pharmacological intervention like posterior subtenon triamcinolone, intravitreal triamcinolone and bevacizumab, have been seen to be useful in macular edema in BRVO. However, use of triamcinolone has risk of cataract and glaucoma development while bevacizumab is an expensive drug. Intravitreal diclofenac has been found to be effective in decreasing diabetic macular edema but has not been used in macular edema...

Reopening of a Retinal Artery after Iatrogenic Closure

Giuseppe Donvito, Liuzzi Francesco, Giovanni Colonna (Gioia Del Colle, Italy) Advantages: Demonstrate the possibility of reopening a retinal artery after iatrogenic closure. Methods: Immediate and prolonged massage of the eye, I accompanied by intravenous therapy with Sulodexide and topical timolol maleate 0.5%, may help the reopening of a retinal artery accidentally closed after the coagulation of a macro aneurism whose exudation was...
