    Retina 2017 Feb 10. Epub 2017 Feb 10.
    Department of Ophthalmology, Hanyang University Hospital, Hanyang University College of Medicine, Seongdong-gu, Seoul, Korea.
    Purpose: To compare the visualization of the macula between spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) in gas-filled eyes.

    Methods: Sixty-one patients with common indications of gas tamponade, including 27 with macular holes and 34 with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, who were treated with vitrectomy and gas tamponade were imaged using both SD-OCT (3D-OCT 2000, Topcon, Tokyo, Japan) and SS-OCT (DRI-OCT, Topcon) at 1, 3, and 7 days after the surgery. Good visualization of the macular area was defined as 1) visible foveal contour and discriminable status of hole (open or closed) for macular hole and 2) visible macular contour and distinguishable status for the presence of subretinal fluid for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

    Preoperative aqueous humour flare values do not predict proliferative vitreoretinopathy in patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
    Br J Ophthalmol 2017 Jan 11. Epub 2017 Jan 11.
    Department of Ophthalmology, University of Kiel, University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany.
    Background/aims: Patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) who develop postoperative proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) have been found to have higher preoperative laser flare values than patients with RRD who do not develop this complication. Measurement of laser flare has therefore been proposed as an objective, rapid and non-invasive method for identifying high-risk patients. The purpose of our study was to validate the use of preoperative flare values as a predictor of PVR risk in two additional patient cohorts, and to confirm the sensitivity and specificity of this method for identifying high-risk patients.

    Methods: This was a retrospective, observational, comparative study. We reviewed the medical records of 54 eyes of 54 RRD patients, 117 eyes of 117 ERM patients, and 75 eyes of 75 MH patients who underwent 20-, 23- or 25-gauge vitrectomy. Read More

    Modern Phacoemulsification and Intraocular Lens Implantation (Refractive Lens Exchange) Is Safe and Effective in Treating High Myopia.

    From the *C-MER (Shenzhen) Dennis Lam Eye Hospital, Shenzhen, China; †Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai, India; and ‡Dennis Lam & Partners Eye Center, Hong Kong.
    Improved efficacy, predictability, and safety of modern phacoemulsification have resulted in cataract surgery being considered as a refractive procedure. Refractive lens exchange by definition is a surgery aimed at replacing the cataractous or clear crystalline lens with an intraocular lens (IOL) in cases of high ametropia. The excellent intraocular optics of this procedure provide a better visual outcome as compared with laser refractive surgery in high myopia. Read More

    Background: To evaluate the postoperative results and efficacy of retinectomy in the treatment of severe proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR).

    Methods: The study involved 38 individuals with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment initially diagnosed with PVR grade C3 who had undergone pars plana vitrectomy combined with scleral buckle and silicone oil as a tamponade. A standard three-port pars plana vitrectomy was performed, and the extension of performing a retinectomy was decided during the procedure. Read More

    Fundus Autofluorescence Patterns of Submacular Fluid Resolution Following Repair of Macula-Involving Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachments.
    Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2016 Nov;47(11):1020-1029
    Background And Objective: Submacular fluid (SMF) can persist for months to years following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) repair. The authors' objective was to describe fundus autofluorescence (FAF) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings associated with the absorption of persistent submacular fluid (SMF) following RD repair.

    Patients And Methods: Retrospective review of clinical data and FAF and OCT imaging from sequential postoperative visits in a cohort of patients with persistent SMF following RD repair. Read More

    Purpose: To describe the surgical approach with a screen-based "heads up" digital viewing technology for the successful repair of a retinal detachment in a patient with severe kyphosis.

    Methods: Case report.

    Results: An 89-year-old man with vision loss in the left eye from a macula-involving retinal detachment of 4 weeks was scheduled for pars plana vitrectomy and retinal detachment repair. Read More

    Vitrectomy and scleral imbrication in patients with myopic traction maculopathy and macular hole retinal detachment.
    Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2016 Nov 10. Epub 2016 Nov 10.
    Kyorin Eye Center, Kyorin University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.
    Purpose: To determine the outcomes of vitrectomy with scleral imbrication in highly myopic eyes with either myopic traction maculopathy (MTM) or macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD).

    Methods: The medical records of 17 patients who had undergone vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and scleral imbrication for MTM or MHRD were reviewed. The best-corrected visual acuities (BCVAs), the axial length, the macular hole (MH) closure rate, and the shape of the posterior segment determined by optical coherence tomography were evaluated.
