Rheological Properties and Age-Related Changes of the Human Vitreous Humor.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2018 18;6:199. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, United States.

The vitreous humor is a fragile, transparent hydrogel situated between the lens and the retina, occupying 80% of the eye's volume. Due to its viscoelastic behavior, the vitreous serves as a mechanical damper for the eye, absorbing impacts, and protecting the lens and retina. The vitreous liquefies with age, which compromises its function as a shock absorber and causes complications including retinal detachment, macular holes, and vitreous hemorrhage. Read More

Bilateral Vitreous Hemorrhage Following Bilateral Intravitreal Injections of Bevacizumab in an Infant With Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Nov;49(11):893-896

Since the publication of BEAT-ROP in 2011, intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) has become increasingly common for the treatment of posterior type 1 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). However, long-term data on the safety and efficacy of IVB for ROP are lacking. Vitreous hemorrhage following bevacizumab injections have been rarely reported in infants with ROP, and the need for treatment of these hemorrhages remains in question. Read More

Beta-Thalassemia Minor Manifesting as Proliferative Retinopathy.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Oct;49(10):e161-e164

Beta-thalassemia (β-thalassemia) minor is characterized by a mutation in one of the two β-globin genes (HBB) that produce the β-globin chains in the hemoglobin molecule. Although other hemoglobinopathies have been frequently associated with retinal disease, there are limited reports of retinal pathology with β-thalassemia minor. We report two patients with β-thalassemia minor presenting with decreased vision, vitreous hemorrhage, and proliferative retinopathy. Read More

Progression of Eales' disease post-partum and long-term follow-up: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 17;12(1):310. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Opticlass, Coriolan Brediceanu no. 29, Timisoara, Romania.

Background: Eales' disease is a difficult to treat idiopathic form of retinal vasculitis. We present such a case with peculiar epidemiology in which the only efficient therapeutic approach in order to maintain functional vision was repeated intravitreal dexamethasone implants (Ozurdex®). To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of this kind in the literature. Read More

Air-Perfused 23-Gauge Sutureless Diabetic Vitrectomy for Control of Intraoperative Bleeding during Removal of Fibrovascular Membrane.

Curr Eye Res 2018 Oct 12:1-7. Epub 2018 Oct 12.

a Department of Ophthalmology , Gachon University Gil Hospital , Incheon , Korea.

Purpose: To demonstrate the advantages and efficacy of an air-perfused membrane dissection to control intraoperative bleeding in 23-gauge sutureless vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy with severe fibrovascular membranes. Meterials and Methods: A prospective, consecutive, interventional case series of 15 eyes that underwent air-perfused diabetic vitrectomy (air vitrectomy group) for removal of the membranes was compared with a retrospective, membrane-matched case series of 10 eyes that underwent conventional diabetic vitrectomy (conventional vitrectomy group). The main outcome measures were real vitrectomy time, intraoperative and postoperative complications, and anatomic and functional successes at the final examination. Read More

Early Retinal Findings Following Cooling in Neonatal Encephalopathy.

Neuropediatrics 2018 Sep 20. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Neonatology, UCL EGA Institute for Women's Health (IfWH), University College London, London, United Kingdom.

Background And Aim:  Perinatal HI (hypoxia-ischemia)-related visual defects including blindness are known to be associated with ischemic lesions in intracerebral visual pathways and ischemic retinal damage (IRD). Intraocular hemorrhages (IOH) such as retinal hemorrhage (RH), which may result from perinatal HI, can cause IRD by various mechanisms. We aimed to evaluate the early retinal findings in neonates with moderate-to-severe neonatal encephalopathy (NE) who underwent TH and its relationship between coagulation status, amplitude-integrated electroencephalography (aEEG) patterns, and magnetic resonance imaging-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRI-MRS) findings.

Research progress on the role of connective tissue growth factor in fibrosis of diabetic retinopathy.

Int J Ophthalmol 2018 18;11(9):1550-1554. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Tianjin Medical University Eye Hospital, Tianjin Medical University Eye Institute, Ophthalmology College of Tianjin Medical University, Tianjin 300384, China.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the most important types of diabetic microangiopathy, which is a specific change of fundus lesions and is one of the most serious complications of diabetes. When DR develops to proliferative DR, the main factors of decreasing vision, and even blindness, include retinal detachment and vitreous hemorrhage caused by contraction of blood vessels by fiber membrane. Recent studies reported that the formation of fiber vascular membrane is closely related to retinal fibrosis. Read More

Peripheral Persistent Fetal Vasculature: A Report of Three Cases.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2018 Sep;49(9):e83-e88

The authors report three cases of persistent fetal vasculature (PFV) presenting with an atypical peripheral fibrovascular stalk. A 5-month-old with congenital exotropia with a vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye underwent vitrectomy, and a mid-peripheral vitreal vascular stalk was visualized within the area of hemorrhage. The second case is of an 8-year-old with two fetal vascular remnants in the right eye: (1) a stalk superotemporally extending from the pars plana to the mid-peripheral retina that was associated with a retinal break and (2) a focal lens opacity.

Drugs Context 2018 13;7:212532. Epub 2018 Aug 13.

Cole Eye Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Diabetes is a major cause of visual impairment among working-age adults in the United States. The proliferative form of diabetic retinopathy is associated with severe vision loss (acuity <5/200). The standard treatment in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) is panretinal photocoagulation (PRP), which is effective but has established side effects such as peripheral visual-field constraints.
