- Update on the management of vasoproliferative tumour. [Journal Article]
- ASArch Soc Esp Oftalmol 2018 Feb 16
- CONCLUSIONS: Therapeutic options are: observation, if it is small, if it is a peripheral lesion, and if there seems to be no threat to vision. If it requires treatment, laser photocoagulation, intravitreal bevacizumab, trans-conjunctival cryotherapy, transpupillary thermotherapy, photodynamic therapy, brachytherapy plaques and surgery are the different options available. Recently, tocilizumab and intravitreal dexamethasone implants have been reported to be beneficial.

- OOphthalmologe 2018 Feb 15
- CONCLUSIONS: Intraoperative iSD-OCT is highly useful as an additional intraoperative diagnostic tool in patients with vitreous haemorrhage. In addition to the en face microscope image, it facilitates intraoperative real-time diagnosis and aids therapeutic decision-making during surgery.

Introduction. Eales disease is an idiopathic peripheral vascular occlusive disease characterized by inflammation, ischemia, and retinal neovascularization and is hallmarked by recurrent vitreous hemorrhages and vision loss.Case report.We present a case of a 48-year-old female with recurrent floaters and decreased vision in her right eye. The onset of symptoms was in 2007 when a diagnose of retinal vasculitis was made. She had no accompanying systemic signs and symptoms and no history of ocular trauma or previous tuberculosis infection. The eye condition was managed only with intermittent focal laser treatment, because the general treatment with steroids was not efficient and poorly tolerated. After the laser treatment, the visual acuity completely recovered and there was no recurrence of vitreous hemorrhage. The case particularity was the unilaterality after 9 years from the onset.

Open globe injuries complicated with the presence of an intraocular foreign body mostly affect young males and represent a vision threatening condition. We presented the case of a 48-year-old male who presented to our emergency service due to ocular pain and blurred vision in his right eye. A metallic foreign body situated between 1 and 12 o'clock, near the corneoscleral limbus, that perforated the cornea, the iris, the anterior capsule of the lens and the lens, was detected at the slit-lamp examination. We decided to immediately remove the foreign body that was approximately 20 mm long. The following day, traumatic cataract had already developed, so we performed cataract extraction. Despite the dimensions of the intraocular foreign body, the retina was attached and there were no sign of retinal tears or vitreous haemorrhage. The proper management in this case led to good results in spite of the dimensions of the intraocular foreign body.Abbreviations:IOFB = Intraocular Foreign Body, IOL = Intraocular Lens, PVR = Proliferative Vitreo-Retinopathy.

Terson's Syndrome is represented by a vitreous, retrohyaloid, retinal, or subretinal hemorrhage occurring consequent to an acute intracranial hemorrhage or elevated intracranial pressure. The outcome may include a complete clearing of the blood and the restoration of VA or persistent hemorrhage. This report presents the case of a 43-year-old woman who underwent bilateral surgery for a persistent vitreous hemorrhage and a hematoma underneath the internal limiting membrane in the left eye. The event followed shortly after a subarachnoid hemorrhage due to the rupture of a posterior communicating artery aneurism. Vitrectomy was performed in both eyes, together with the peeling of the internal limiting membrane in the left eye, followed by a bilateral good outcome.
- Evaluation of 3D heads-up vitrectomy: outcomes of psychometric skills testing and surgeon satisfaction. [Journal Article]
- EEye (Lond) 2018 Feb 15
- CONCLUSIONS: PPV with 3DM is more comfortable for the surgeon and poses no substantially greater risk of complications for the patient. The high-definition screen delivers excellent depth perception and better screen parameter control, which results in high-quality surgical performance. 3DM surgery helps to significantly improve teaching and learning intra-operative surgical procedures.
- Rapidly progressive neovascular glaucoma following coronary artery bypass graft surgery in a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus: a case report. [Journal Article]
- JMJ Med Case Rep 2018 Feb 12; 12(1):36
- CONCLUSIONS: Vision loss following coronary artery bypass graft surgery is usually associated with nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. Rapid progression to bilateral blindness resulting from neovascular glaucoma within a few weeks of presentation following coronary artery bypass graft is not a common presentation with this clinical entity. Our patient had been treated with erythropoietin-stimulating factor for severe anemia preceding and following his coronary artery bypass graft surgery. The improvement in ocular perfusion following coronary artery bypass graft surgery, coupled with the administration of erythropoietin-stimulating factor, could have contributed to the onset and rapid progression of neovascular glaucoma. Close monitoring of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery, even if adequately treated, is advised because there is increased ocular morbidity leading to blindness.
- Surgical outcomes and complications of sutured scleral fixated intraocular lenses in pediatric eyes. [Journal Article]

- CONCLUSIONS: SSFIOLs are effective in correcting aphakia in children; long-term follow-up of these children is, however, necessary.
- Airsoft gun-related ocular injuries: long-term follow-up. [Journal Article]
- JAJ AAPOS 2018 Feb 15
- CONCLUSIONS: While most acute airsoft gun-related ocular injuries are transient, some patients may develop significant and potentially sight-threatening ocular damage, even in the absence of significant pathologic findings at the time of the injury. Long-term follow-up on these patients is advisable.

- BIMANUAL MICROINCISION VITREOUS SURGERY FOR SEVERE PROLIFERATIVE DIABETIC RETINOPATHY: OUTCOME IN MORE THAN 300 EYES. [Journal Article]
- RRetina 2018 Feb 05
- CONCLUSIONS: Sustained visual improvement, anatomical restoration, and low complication rates were obtained in complex situations with bimanual microincision vitreous surgery in a large series. Visual outcomes were poorer in older age group, tractional retinal detachments involving macula, and eyes with extensive membranes and with silicone oil as tamponade. Both 23-gauge and 25-gauge groups were comparable in relation to visual improvement, anatomical success, and intraoperative and postoperative complications.
