The Role of Proportional Reflux During Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Tractional Retinal Detachments.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2019 Feb;50(2):113-115

Background And Objective: To discuss the role of proportional reflux hydrodissection (PRH) during pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in eyes with diabetic tractional retinal detachment (TRD).

Patients And Methods: In this retrospective study, records of patients with diabetic TRD involving the fovea undergoing PPV with the help of PRH between January 2015 to March 2017 were noted. PRH relies on the Constellation system's proportional reflux feature. Read More

Gross anterior segment ischaemia following vitreoretinal surgery for sickle-cell retinopathy.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Jan 29;12(1). Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Vitreo-retinal Unit, Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Manchester, UK.

We report the case of a 32-year-old Afrocaribbean man with known stage 3 proliferative sickle-cell retinopathy who presented with a mixed picture of tractional and rhegmatogenous macula off detachment. He underwent left primary 25 g vitrectomy with silicone oil, delamination and endolaser photocoagulation under a general anaesthetic. He, however, presented 48 hours postoperatively with gross anterior segment ischaemia. Read More

Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1/CCL2) in diabetic retinopathy: latest evidence and clinical considerations.

J Cell Commun Signal 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Molecular Medicine Research Center, Research Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences, Rafsanjan, Iran.

Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is considered as a diabetes-related complication that can render severe visual impairments and is also a risk factor for acquired blindness in both developed as well as developing countries. Through fibrovascular epiretinal membranes (ERMs), this condition can similarly lead to tractional retinal detachment. Laboratory efforts evaluating the DR pathogenesis can be provided by ocular vitreous fluid and ERMs resulting from vitrectomy. Read More

Robot-assisted tremor control for performance enhancement of retinal microsurgeons.

Br J Ophthalmol 2018 Dec 20. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Department of Ophthalmology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

Pars plana vitrectomy is a challenging, minimally invasive microsurgical procedure due to its intrinsic manoeuvres and physiological limits that constrain human capability. An important human limitation is physiological hand tremor, which can significantly increase the risk of iatrogenic retinal damage resulting from unintentional manoeuvres that affect anatomical and functional surgical outcomes. The limitations imposed by normal physiological tremor are more evident and challenging during 'micron-scale' manoeuvres such as epiretinal membrane and internal limiting membrane peeling, and delicate procedures requiring coordinated bimanual surgery such as tractional retinal detachment repair.

PERSISTENT HYALOID ARTERY - PERFORM A SURGERY OR NOT?

Cesk Slov Oftalmol 2018 ;73(5-6):178-182

The review points to the issues of persistent hyaloid artery, more precisely to possible clinical features, the influence on visual functions and potential complications during intraocular surgeries. In professional journals we can find just few reviews regarding this rare deviation of the eye development, therefore we want to present our experience. The persistent hyaloid artery causes chronical local changes of eye background at both of our patients, retinal detachment and retinoschisis. Read More

Screening Examination of Premature Infants for Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Pediatrics 2018 Dec;142(6)

This policy statement revises a previous statement on screening of preterm infants for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) that was published in 2013. ROP is a pathologic process that occurs in immature retinal tissue and can progress to a tractional retinal detachment, which may then result in visual loss or blindness. For more than 3 decades, treatment of severe ROP that markedly decreases the incidence of this poor visual outcome has been available. Read More

Current management of diabetic tractional retinal detachments.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2018 Dec;66(12):1751-1762

Department of Ophthalmology, Kittner Eye Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Twenty-five percent of diabetes-related vision loss stems from complications of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Panretinal photocoagulation has been the preferred treatment of high-risk PDR for decades and more recently intravitreal injections of drugs that inhibit the actions of vascular endothelial growth factor have become popular. But despite these treatments PDR may progress uncontrollably to advanced pathologies such as traction retinal detachments (TRDs), combined traction/rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (TRD/RRDs), vitreous hemorrhages, rubeosis iridis, and traction maculopathies, which produce mild-to-severe loss of vision.

A comparative study to determine the optimal intravitreal injection angle to the eye: A computational fluid-structure interaction model.

Technol Health Care 2018 ;26(3):483-498

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan.

This study was aimed at investigating the role of IVI angle on the induced stresses and deformations among the components of the eye. Thereafter, the most optimal angle of IVI to minimize the complications of post IVI at the injection site on a basis of the computed stresses via a Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) computational model was proposed. IntraVitreal Injection (IVI) is broadly employed as a principal treatment of vascular vitro-retinal diseases. Read More
