Advantages:

To evaluate the outcome of surgical management of persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous.

Methods:

Retrospective study including 3 eyes of 3 children with unilateral persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous. Patients were aged 6 years, 4 years, and 2 years respectively. Patients underwent Cataract extraction combined with vitrectomy and removal of embryonic remnants. Intraocular lenses were implanted in the 3 eyes. Visual acuity improved in the 3 eyes.

Effectiveness / Safety:

Persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous eyes have a potential for developing useful vision with favourable cosmetic outcome after surgery. Intraocular lens implantation may be a favourable and beneficial option for the management of children with unilateral persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous.
