    Surgically Induced Focal Retinal Detachment Does Not Cause Detectable SD-OCT Retinal Changes in Normal Human Retina.
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 2017 Oct;58(12):5270-5279
    USC Roski Eye Institute, Keck School of Medicine of USC, Los Angeles, California, United States.
    Purpose: Induction of focal retinal detachment (RD) for subretinal delivery of stem cells and gene therapy is increasingly common. In order to determine if this procedure has an adverse impact on the retina, we use spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to evaluate the pre- and postoperative retinal anatomy of the incidentally detached normal retina surrounding large submacular hemorrhages (SMH) during surgical displacement procedures.

    Methods: Retrospective, observational study of human subjects with monocular SMH evaluated before and after surgical displacement using clinical exam, fundus photography, and SD-OCT. Read More

    Purpose: To compare the surgical outcomes of glued intraocular lens (GIOL) and sutured scleral fixated intraocular lens (SFIOL) implantation.

    Methods: A retrospective, interventional case series of 60 patients (68 eyes) who underwent GIOL (28 eyes: 11 primary; 17 secondary) and SFIOL (40 eyes: 24 primary; 16 secondary) in a tertiary eye care institute was done. The main outcome measures were complications, time taken for surgery, postoperative refractive outcomes, and final best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Read More

    Vitrectomy with a modified temporal inverted limiting membrane flap to reconstruct the foveolar architecture for macular hole retinal detachment in highly myopic eyes.
    Acta Ophthalmol 2017 Jul 5. Epub 2017 Jul 5.
    Department of Ophthalmology, Cardinal Tien Hospital, Fu Jen Catholic University, New Taipei City, Taiwan.
    Purpose: We investigated the surgical results of macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD) with a modified C-shaped temporal inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap to reconstruct the foveolar architecture in highly myopic eyes.

    Methods: Eighteen highly myopic eyes with MHRD in 17 patients who underwent a vitrectomy with a modified C-shaped temporal inverted ILM flap were followed for 12 months. Anatomic outcomes were evaluated by fundus examinations and optical coherence tomography. Read More

    Background: To evaluate the quality of the images obtained by an ultra-widefield device in gas-filled eyes after vitrectomy for a retinal detachment.

    Methods: Retrospective case series. The ultra-widefield scanning laser ophthalmoscopic images (Optos 200Tx imaging system) of 40 eyes that were gas-filled with 40 to 90% of the vitreous cavity after vitrectomy for a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment were studied. Read More

    Comparative study of 27-gauge and 25-gauge vitrectomy performed as day surgery.

    Department of Ophthalmology, Nihon University Hospital, 1-6 Surugadai, Kanda, Chiyodaku, Tokyo, 101-8309, Japan.
    Purpose: To compare postoperative outcomes of 27-gauge (G) and 25-G vitrectomy conducted as day surgery.

    Methods: In total, 200 consecutive eyes that underwent primary vitrectomy (27-G in 100 eyes, 25-G in 100 eyes) were analyzed. 27-G vitrectomy was performed using a cut rate of 7500 cpm and 25-G vitrectomy using a cut rate of 5000 cpm. Read More

    No Light Perception Outcomes Following Boston Keratoprosthesis Type 1 Surgery.

    Department of Ophthalmology, Centre Hospitalier de l'Université de Montréal, Hôpital Notre-Dame, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
    Purpose: To determine the incidence rate, principal causes, and clinical course of eyes developing no light perception (NLP) visual acuity (VA) following Boston Keratoprosthesis (B-KPro) type 1 surgery. Secondary objectives include determining the incidence rate, relative risk (RR), and survival probability with respect to NLP outcomes among eyes with congenital aniridia.
