ERM Removal in a Case of Von Hippel Lindau Angioma Post-brachytherapy

We present an unusual case of Von Hipple Lindau angiomas managed by brachytherapy. During post-operative follow up, an epiretinal membrane developed causing dragging of the macula and diminution of visual acuity. A 23 gauge pars plana vitrectomy was performed with removal of ERM and endolaser to the angiomas residuals. ERM came as one sheet and was found to extend to the retinal periphery. Visual acuity and OCT thickness improved...

Vitreoretinal Surgery for Retinal Detachment in Retinal capillary Hemangioma (RCH)

Maurizio Mete*, Grazia Pertile (Negrar, Italy) Retinal capillary haemangioma (RCH) is one of the most common expressions of Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. In case of small- or medium-sized RCHs (up to 2 disk diameters), the standard treatment remains laser photocoagulation or cryotherapy. Various treatments have been proposed such as brachytherapy, external beam radiotherapy, transpupillary thermotherapy, photodynamic therapy and...

Indocyanine Green (ICG) Mediated Phototrombosis of a Large Retinal Hemangioblastoma in von Hippel-Lindau Disease

Enrico Bertelli, (Bolzano, Italy) PURPOSE: To assess the efficacy of ICG mediated phototrombosis in the treatment of large vascular lesions, and in particular of a 6 mm large, actively exudating retinal hemangioblastoma in a case of von Hippel- Lindau disease. METHODS: A 31 year old female patient presented with history of decreased vision in her right eye dating back several months. Visual acuity had decreased to 20/200. Fundus examination...
