Inverted Internal Limiting Membrane Technique Maintains Macular Hole Closure in Retinal Detachment Following Macular Hole Repair.

Middle East Afr J Ophthalmol 2018 Jul-Dec;25(3-4):167-169

Retina Institute, Eye Foundation Hospitals, Lagos, Nigeria.

Recent advances in macular hole surgery have significantly improved the rates of anatomical success. One important advance is the dye-assisted peeling of the internal limiting membrane (ILM) around the hole. In large holes (<400 μ), sometimes, ILM peeling alone is not enough to achieve closure, and this may be improved by inverting part of the peeled membrane and using it to cover the macular hole or inverting and tucking the ILM flap into the hole.

Multimodal imaging of torpedo maculopathy including adaptive optics.

Eur J Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 8:1120672119827772. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

3 Aix Marseille Université, CNRS, Institut Neurosciences Timone (INT), Marseille, France.

Purpose:: The etiology of torpedo maculopathy remains unknown, but it has been recently suggested that it could represent a persistent defect in the development of the retinal pigment epithelium. As retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptors form a functional unit, an alteration of photoreceptor distribution or function is predictable. The aim of this study is to describe multimodal imaging, including adaptive optics, in three cases of torpedo maculopathy, and discuss its pathogenesis. Read More

Down-regulation of miR-377 suppresses high glucose and hypoxia-induced angiogenesis and inflammation in human retinal endothelial cells by direct up-regulation of target gene SIRT1.

Hum Cell 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Ophthalmology, Beijing Chaoyang Hospital, Capital Medical University, No. 8 Gongti South Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing, 100020, China.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the common microvascular complications of diabetes mellitus, which is the main cause of blindness in diabetic patients. Angiogenesis plays an important role in retinal detachment and retinal microvascular inflammation throughout the whole development of DR. This study aimed to investigate the regulatory effect and the potential mechanism of miR-377 on high glucose and hypoxia-induced angiogenesis and inflammation in human retinal endothelial cells, and found that the miR-377 level was significantly increased after high glucose and hypoxia-mimetic agent to simulate the DR milieu.

Update of inflammatory proliferative retinopathy: Ischemia, hypoxia and angiogenesis.

Curr Res Transl Med 2019 Jan 23. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Laboratory of Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Montreal Heart Institute, Montreal, H1T1C8, Quebec, Canada.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) present two examples of proliferative retinopathy, characterized by the same stages of progression; ischemia of the retinal vessels, leads to hypoxia and to correct the problem there is the setting up of uncontrolled angiogenesis, which subsequently causes blindness or even detachment of the retina. The difference is the following; that DR initiated by the metabolic complications that are due to hyperglycemia, and ROP is induced by overexposure of the neonatal retina to oxygen. In this review, we will demonstrate the physiopathological mechanism of the two forms of proliferative retinopathy DR and ROP, in particular the role of the CD40/CD40L axis and IL-1 on vascular complications and onset of inflammation of the retina, the implications of their effects on the onset of pathogenic angiogenesis, thus understanding the link between platelets and retinal ischemia.

Oral Selumetinib Does Not Negatively Impact Photoreceptor Survival in Murine Experimental Retinal Detachment.

Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2019 Jan;60(1):349-357

Havener Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, Ohio, United States.

Purpose: Mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (MAPK/ERK) signaling is neuroprotective in some retinal damage models but its role in neuronal survival during retinal detachment (RD) is unclear. In addition, serous RDs are a prevalent side effect of MEK inhibitors (MEKi), blocking MAPK/ERK signaling for treatment of certain cancers. We tested the hypothesis that MEKi treatment in experimental RD would increase photoreceptor death. Read More

Comparing the long-term impact on health care resources utilization and costs due to various single-piece acrylic monofocal intraocular lens implantation during cataract surgery: a cost-consequence analysis for the United Kingdom, Italy, and Denmark.

Clin Ophthalmol 2019 14;13:169-176. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Patient Access Services, Novartis Healthcare Private Limited, Hyderabad, India.

Purpose: The objective of this study was to estimate the cost impact of neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomy and its complications due to single-piece acrylic monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) in the healthcare setting of United Kingdom, Italy, and Denmark.

Materials And Methods: A hypothetical cost-consequence model was developed to estimate economic burden of Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy due to different single-piece acrylic monofocal IOLs. Cumulative incidence of Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy at 3 years after cataract surgery with five single-piece monofocal acrylic IOLs was sourced from retrospective data analysis of electronic medical records of cataract patients in the United Kingdom.
