Combined 25g Vitrectomy + Sheathatomy + ILM Peeling + Phacoemulsification + IOL Implantation for the Treatment ofBranch Retinal Vein Occlusion

Murat Oncel, MD (Istanbul, Turkey) SYNOPSIS This film demonstrates the use of the transcon-junctival sutureless 25-gauge vitrectomy system combining with clear corneal phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. Sheathotomy was performed either using a special knife or nitinol flexiable extandible pick with trypan blue-assisted peeling of the internal limiting membrane in branch retinal vein occlusion. Pre- and...

Evaluation of Macular Activity Using mfERG in Patients with BRVO, before and after Sheathetomy

A. Gierek-Lapinska, A. Cywinski, K. Jackiewicz, L. Cwalina Purpose: To evaluate activity of the macula before and after sheathetomy. Methods: 20 patients were operated on 2-3 months after incidence of BRVO. MfERG was performed 1 day before and 1 week, 3 months after the surgery. The results were compared. Results: Improvement of macular activity examined using mfERG were observed in every patient after the surgery. Conclusion: MfERG is an...
