Cine-angiography ICG Demonstrates Choroidal Re-perfusions After Vortex Vein Occlusions in AMD

Choroidal volume is reduced along aging. Choroidal perfusion is decreased by 37% in AMD (Grunwald JE1998) (1) Choroidal thickness is reduced by 50% (EDI-OCT study-Spaide RF 2009) (2) Vortex Veins Occlusion (VVO) might restaure choriocapillaris perfusion. (Hayreh SS 1982, experiments in the Rhesus monkey) (3) and (Bonnet M 1985, surgery in 17 human eyes with AMD) (4). The goal of the study was to evaluate the choroidal perfusion after...

Cine-angiography ICG Demonstrates Choroidal Re-perfusions After Vortex Vein Occlusions in AMD

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Choroidal volume decreases with age. Choroidal perfusion is also decreased by 37% (Grunwald JE1998)- 50% (EDI-OCT study-Spaide RF 2009) in AMD. Vortex Veins Occlusion (VVO) might restore choriocapillaris perfusion. (Hayreh SS 1982, experiments in the Rhesus monkey, Bonnet M 1985, surgery in 17 human eyes with AMD). The goal of the study...

New Progress in the Surgical Treatment of AMD by Vortex Vein Occlusion

Richard Luscan, MD (Garches, France), P. Di Costanzo, (Saint Ouen, France), O. Polony, (Saint Ouen, France), R. Legac, (Saint Ouen, France), A. Chouquet, (Saint Ouen, France) PURPOSE: To demonstrate the efficacy of choriocapillaris repair surgery by vortex vein occlusion on various forms of AMD. METHODS: Several forms of AMD were treated surgically by vortex vein occlusion and were followed form March 2002 to March 2006. The basis of this...
