Authors:
Renato Ambrósio

Semin Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 21:1-3. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

a Department of Ophthalmology , Instituto de Olhos Renato Ambrósio , Rio de Janeiro , Brazil.

Corneal ectasia has emerged as a serious complication of laser vision correction (LVC) procedures since the first report by Seiler in 1998. Thereby, its prevention has become a major concern for refractive surgeons. Ectasia occurs due to biomechanical decompensation of the stroma, which may be related to a severe impact on corneal structure (i. Read More

Intravitreous injections are presently the second most frequently performed ophthalmic procedure and the most common vitreoretinal procedure. In diabetic patients, intravitreous injections are frequently performed for the treatment of center-involved diabetic macular edema, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, or other co-existing retinal vascular disease. Diabetic patients may be at higher risk of adverse events compared to non-diabetic individuals, given frequent systemic comorbidities, such as cardiovascular and renal disease and increased susceptibility to infection.

Half-Fluence Photodynamic Therapy for Chronic Central Serous Chorioretinopathy: Predisposing Factors for Visual Acuity Outcomes.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 18;33(5):690-699. Epub 2017 Dec 18.

b Institute of Biostatistics and Analyses, Faculty of Medicine , Masaryk University , Brno , Czech Republic.

Background: Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is characterised by a serous detachment of the neurosensory retina in the macula. Chronic CSC tends to affect older individuals with a less favourable visual outcome. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin is a possible therapeutic approach in cases of CSC with no tendency for spontaneous resorption. Read More

Postoperative Complications of Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Diabetic Retinal Disease.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 7;33(1):126-133. Epub 2017 Dec 7.

a Beetham Eye Institute , Joslin Diabetes Center , Boston , MA , USA.

Despite recent advances in the medical management of diabetic retinal disease, there remain established indications for vitreoretinal surgery in the treatment of severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy. These include non-clearing vitreous hemorrhage and tractional retinal detachment. Advances in surgical instrumentation, technique, and experience have led to improved visual outcomes, as well as a corresponding decrease in the incidence of postoperative complications. Read More

Aqueous Drainage Device Erosion: A Review of Rates, Risks, Prevention, and Repair.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 6;33(1):1-10. Epub 2017 Dec 6.

a Glaucoma Service, Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear , Harvard Medical School , Boston , MA , USA.

Aqueous drainage device tube erosions require prompt intervention to prevent endophthalmitis. As the use of drainage devices in glaucoma surgery continues to increase, recognizing and managing tube erosions is a pertinent issue. This review provides a comprehensive overview of tube erosions, including the rates of erosion with various types of patch grafts, the risk factors associated with erosion, and approaches to repair in order to counsel and treat our patients to prevent endophthalmitis.

Diplopia after Strabismus Surgery.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 1;33(1):102-107. Epub 2017 Dec 1.

a Department of Ophthalmology , Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School , Boston , MA , USA.

Diplopia is a disappointing and, at times, unanticipated consequence of what might otherwise be considered anatomically successful strabismus surgery. In this study, we review the existing literature regarding diplopia after strabismus surgery in the context of the senior author's experience. We divide postoperative diplopia types into cases that occur in the setting of normal binocular vision (or "normal" suppression) vs. Read More

Postoperative Complications of Scleral Buckling.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 29;33(1):70-74. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

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

Scleral buckling has an important role in the repair of certain categories of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. These include detachments in young phakic patients, detachments associated with dialysis, and also in conjuction with vitrectomy in patients who have sustained trauma or have developed proliferative vitreoretinopathy. However, it can be associated with significant postoperative complications. Read More

Cataract Surgery Complications in Uveitis Patients: A Review Article.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 29;33(1):64-69. Epub 2017 Nov 29.

a Uveitis and Ocular Immunology Service , Department of Ophthalmology, Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School , Boston , MA , USA.

Uveitis is a leading causes of blindness worldwide, and the development of cataracts is common due to both the presence of intraocular inflammation and the most commonly employed treatment with corticosteroids. The management of these cataracts can be very challenging and often requires additional procedures that can compromise surgical results. The underlying disease affects a relatively young population at higher risk of complications. Read More

Panretinal Photocoagulation: A Review of Complications.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 27;33(1):83-88. Epub 2017 Nov 27.

a Retina Service , Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Harvard Medical School , Boston , MA , USA.

Panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) is a mainstay of therapy for retinal ischemic disease. The procedure involves creating thermal burns in the peripheral retina leading to tissue coagulation, the overall consequence of which is improved retinal oxygenation. While highly effective, there have been concerns historically regarding the anatomic effects and visual complications following PRP, the most common of which include choroidal effusions, exudative retinal detachments, macular edema, visual field deficits, and night vision defects.

Semin Ophthalmol 2018 27;33(1):134-141. Epub 2017 Nov 27.

a Massachusetts Eye and Ear, Department of Ophthalmology , Harvard Medical School , Boston , MA , USA.

Corneal epithelial stem cells are adult somatic stem cells located at the limbus and represent the ultimate source of transparent corneal epithelium. When these limbal stem cells become dysfunctional or deficient, limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) develops. LSCD is a major cause of corneal scarring and is particularly prevalent in chemical and thermal burns of the ocular surface. Read More
