MRI enables accurate diagnosis and follow-up in uveal melanoma patients after vitrectomy.

Melanoma Res 2019 Jan 16. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

Department of Ophthalmology, Leiden University Medical Center.

Uveal melanoma (UM), the most common primary intraocular tumour, is often complicated by exudative retinal detachment (RD). Sometimes, this exudative RD is mistaken for a rhegmatogenous detachment and is subsequently treated with vitrectomy with silicone oil (SiOil) tamponade. As SiOil prevents ultrasound imaging, the diagnosis, treatment planning and/or follow-up of UM underlying the detachment are often severely hindered by the SiOil. Read More

Retinal detachments in the pediatric population.

Taiwan J Ophthalmol 2018 Oct-Dec;8(4):222-236

Department of Ophthalmology, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong.

In this review, we present a concise summary of the more commonly seen types of retinal detachments (RDs) that one can encounter in pediatric patients. A spectrum of diseases from rhegmatogenous RD in Stickler syndrome, Marfan syndrome, and choroidal coloboma to exudative RD in Coats disease, to tractional RD in persistent fetal vasculature, and combined RDs in familial exudative vitreoretinopathy are described with the management pearls for each.

[The role of anti-VEGF therapy in geographic atrophy progression].

Vestn Oftalmol 2018 ;134(5. Vyp. 2):289-293

Research Institute of Eye Diseases, 11, A, B Rossolimo St., Moscow, Russian Federation, 119021.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a retinal disease associated with older age; it affects macula and leads to deterioration of central vision. Geographic atrophy (GA) is described as advanced stage AMD. Essentially, GA is the loss of some areas of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), which is necessary for normal functioning of the retina as it transports nutrients and ions, helps with production of growth factors and protects from photo-oxidation.

The authors report a case of unilateral retinal detachment in a 19-year-old patient with history of peripheral ablation for ROP in the contralateral eye. This late reactivation is likely due to persistent avascular retina producing constant low levels of vascular endothelial growth factor. Read More

Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Campus Benjamin Franklin, Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin.

PEHCR (peripheral exudative haemorrhagic chorioretinopathy) is a disease manifested clinically, particularly by subretinal bleeding, retinal exudates, retinal pigment epithelium detachments (RPE detachments), exudative retinal detachment and sub-RPE bleeding. The PEHCR lesion is often characterized by its polypoidal pattern, which is very similar to PCV (polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy) polyps. Diagnosis is best made with a wide-field ICGA (indocyanine green angiography). Read More

Choroidal detachments: what do optometrists need to know?

Clin Exp Optom 2018 Jul 4. Epub 2018 Jul 4.

School of Optometry and Vision Science, The University of New South Wales, Kensington, New South Wales, Australia.

Choroidal detachments occur when there is an accumulation of fluid or blood in the suprachoroidal space, a potential space situated between the choroid and the sclera. They are an uncommon ocular pathology. The most common cause of choroidal detachment is secondary to trabeculectomy; however, there are other causes such as trauma and inflammation. Read More

Asia Pac J Ophthalmol (Phila) 2018 May-Jun;7(3):156-159. Epub 2018 Mar 27.

Department of Ophthalmology, Kindai University Faculty of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

Coats disease is a sporadic, chronic retinal vascular disorder with telangiectatic and aneurysmal retinal vessels, with retinal exudation and retinal detachment in severe cases. Various treatment modalities have been used, including laser therapy, cryotherapy, anti‒vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy, and surgery. Anti-VEGF therapy seems to be effective in reducing exudative changes and is often combined with other treatment modalities. Read More

Retina Service, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR) is a heritable vitreoretinopathy characterized by anomalous retinal vascular development. The principal feature of the disease is an avascular peripheral retina. This in turn can cause further pathological changes including neovascularization, exudation, hemorrhage, and retinal detachment. Read More
