Vitrectomy with brachytherapy shows no increase in metastatic riskThe metastatic prognosis does not increase when vitrectomy is performed at the time of brachytherapy.
Inverted ILM flap technique improves outcomes of macular hole surgery
Study finds YAG laser vitreolysis may be option for floatersTake-Home Message: YAG laser vitreolysis might be a treatment option for patients with complaints of floaters. Larger studies of longer duration are needed to corroborate these results.
IOL-telescope may improve vision for patients with advanced maculopathiesTake-Home Message: The Telescopic Intra-Ocular Lens for Visually Impaired People Revolution system is promising to improve the vision in patients with maculopathies.
27-gauge presents new paradigm of intraocular precision for vitrectomyModern 27-gauge equipment for vitrectomy has introduced a new paradigm in vitreoretinal surgery marked by enhanced precision and control.
Temporary scleral buckling offers advantages for retinal detachmentTemporary scleral buckling performed with a removable external device provides the benefits of scleral buckling while addressing its downsides as surgery for a detached retina.
Research offers insights to success in macular hole surgery
Research offers insights to success in macular hole surgeryMacular hole surgery can be performed using various techniques and technologies. According to John T. Thompson, MD, the available evidence supports always incorporating internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, staining of the ILM, and having a large gas bubble in the eye on the first postoperative day.
Suprachoroidal hemorrhage management centers on minimalist techniquesSuprachorodial hemorrhage can be managed effectively with a conservative approach, but if surgical intervention becomes necessary, timing is critical for optimizing the outcome and minimally invasive techniques can be considered, said John W. Kitchens, MD.
ILM removal increases ease, safety of subretinal injectionsRemoving a small area of internal limiting membrane at the intended site of a subretinal injection allows the injection to be delivered without penetrating the retina.
Imaging, 27-gauge systems capture retina surgeons’ focusRetina surgeons considered 2015 to be an exciting time in the subspecialty in all areas and pointed to the availability and increased use of 27-gauge instrumentation as one of the real highlights of surgical retina.
