In vivo generated autologous plasmin assisted vitrectomy in young patients.

Int J Retina Vitreous 2022 Jun 11;8(1):36. Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Department of Ophthalmology, Istanbul Medipol Medical School, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Autologous plasmin enzyme facilitates the induction of posterior vitreous detachment(PVD) during vitrectomy in young patients.

A bio-functional polymer that prevents retinal scarring through modulation of NRF2 signalling pathway.

Nat Commun 2022 May 19;13(1):2796. Epub 2022 May 19.

Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, Singapore.

One common cause of vision loss after retinal detachment surgery is the formation of proliferative and contractile fibrocellular membranes. This aberrant wound healing process is mediated by epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and hyper-proliferation of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells. Current treatment relies primarily on surgical removal of these membranes. Read More

Analysis of Korean Retinal Specialists' Opinions on Implanting Diffractive Multifocal Intraocular Lenses in Eyes with Underlying Retinal Diseases.

J Clin Med 2022 Mar 26;11(7). Epub 2022 Mar 26.

Department of Ophthalmology, HanGil Eye Hospital, 35 Bupyeong-daero, Bupyeong-gu, Incheon 21388, Korea.

Multifocal intraocular lenses (MF-IOLs) are increasingly implanted as the need for good near- and intermediate-distance vision increases. Although retinal disease is known to be a relative contraindication for MF-IOL implantation, there are no detailed guidelines for MF-IOL implantation with respect to the type and severity of retinal diseases/statuses. In this study, because retinal diseases can affect the performance of MF-IOLs, we analyzed the opinions of 111 retinal specialists, who were members of the Korean Retina Society, on the implantation of diffractive MF-IOLs in eyes with 15 retinal diseases/statuses using a web-based survey.
