Air Endotamponade Application in Patients with Rhegmatogenous RD

SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2016_Air Endotamponade Application in Patients with Rhegmatogenous RD Katarzyna Michalska-Malecka Introduction: The aim of this research was to evaluate the results of retinal detachment treatment with pars plana vitrectomy using air endotamponade. Methods: The research was conducted among 23 patients aged from 43 to 74 years old, 9 women (39.1%) and 14 man (60.9%). All patients underwent the treatment using pars plana...

Intravitreal Gas Injection: My Way

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   I use sulfur hexafluoride SF6 20%. We need to have a non expansile gas without hypotony. My way: I do a complete fluid air exchange to have an air filled globe. Then I remove all trocars from air filled globe except the infusion cannula. I fill a 5cc syringe with 2cc SF6 and 3cc air (SF6 40%). I fit a 28 G needle to the gas syring. I...

Macular Hole Surgery: Does C3F8 Provide Better Anatomical and Functional Outcomes than SF6 and C2F6?

Purpose: To assess differences in anatomical and functional outcomes when using C2F6, SF6 or C3F8 gas tamponade in macular hole surgery with pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane peeling and a non-strict postoperative posturing regimen. Setting: Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Trust, UK. Methods: Clinical and surgical data were prospectively entered into an electronic medical record (Medisoft, Leeds, UK). Data of consecutive...

The Most Simple Technique of Gas Tamponade

Advantages:  This very fast technique requires a single injection of undiluted gas without the need of gas mixing. Methods:  After vitrectomy, ILM peeling and fluid/air exchange, the sclera is sutured, or, in sutureless surgery, the cannulas are removed, however, the globe is left slightly hypotonous. The level of hypotony is very easily assessed using a finger. Then, just an injection of 1.5 ml of SF6 is injected using a 30ga needle....

The Importance of Gas Injection in Idiopathic ERM Peeling Recovery

Advantages: Inner limiting membrane (ILM) removal has become a standard procedure in idiopathic epiretinal membrane (iERM) peeling over the last 15 years but some entities still respond poorly to surgery, like pseudo-lamellar holes, either in their final visual acuity or metamorphopsia reports. Herein, we propose to investigate the importance of gas injection as a tamponade in every instance of iERM peeling and examine the effect on...

Short-term PFCL Endotamponade in Treatment of Inferior Retinal Detachment

Kh.P. Takhchidi, S.S. Tillyakhodzhaev, A.A. Gorin (Moscow, Russia) Abstract: Modern technologies of vitreoretinal surgery ensure the high anatomical and functional results in the treatment of retinal detachment (RD). The key point investigations in this field are concentrated on the searching of liquids, which can provide short-term effective and sufficient endotamponade for achieving high anatomical and functional results. At present,...
