Evaluation of Subfoveal Choroidal and Central Retinal Thickness in Normal Eyes

Ohjae Kim_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015_1 Purpose: To determine subfoveal choroidal thickness and central retinal thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and to evaluate association between both thickness and age, gender and axial length. Methods: Spectral domain OCT images (Bioptigen, Bioptigen, inc., Durham, NC) were obtained in 151 eyes of 151 healthy volunteers without retinal diseases. The IOL master (Carl Zeiss Meditech) was used...

Maculoplasty

Perforating eye injuries create numerous posterior segment problems. Retinal incarceration is one of the serious problems. Retinotomy, retinectomy techniques are frequently used to solve this problem. This is a case of shotgun injury with scleral perforation and dense vitreous hemorrhage. Macular dragging and partial macular incarceration to the nasal retina and macular tear accompanied with dense subretinal hemorrhage were other findings...

Full Macular Translocation for Massive Submacular Hemorrhage Secondary to Neovascular AMD

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2009/congress/Hemorrhages.flv Author: Hassan Mortada, Cairo, Egypt Advantages: In eyes with massive submacular hemorrhage secondary to neovascular AMD, perform full macular translocation (FMT) remove the submacular hemorrhage, excise the neovascular membrane and translocate the macula to an area with healthier RPE/CC complex. This results in improvement of both distant and reading vision and prevents recurrence...

Role of Subretinal R-TPA in Management of Subretinal Haemorrhage due to Age Related Macular Degeneration

S. Natarajan, Santosh Mahapatra, Hitendra B. Mehta , Hemant Todkar Purpose: To establish the role of R-TPA in management of massive subretinal haemorrhage due to ARMD. Methods: Retrospective case control study. Results: Clearance of subretinal / sub RPE haemorrhage in two of our cases following vitrectomy and subretinal R-TPA injection. Conclusion: Subretinal / Sub Retinal Pigment Epithelium (RPE) R-TPA, is a good therapeutic option in...

Vitrectomy and Subretinal tPA in Submacular Hemorrhage

Mehmet Cakir, MD, Ziya Kapran, MD, Nur Acar, MD, Y. Banu Ünver, MD, Tugrul Altan, MD, Zerrin Bayraktar, MD – Beyoglu Eye Research and Education Hospital, Istanbul Submacular hemorrhage in age related macular degeneration (ARMD) leads to severe visual loss in the early period by photoreceptor damage. At the same time, subretinal hemorrhage prevents the diagnosis and the treatment of the primary pathology. Tissue plasminogen activator...
