Atrophy and anti-VEGF

The aim of this study was to investigate treatment factors, along with ocular and systemic factors for their association with macular atrophy (MA) incidence in eyes with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) treated with anti-VEGF aflibercept or ranibizumab according to...

Control of bleeding with diabetic vitrectomy under air

The authors describe a modified diabetic vitrectomy using continuous air infusion in diabetic eyes with severe fibrovascular proliferation. In their case series of 25 eyes (20 patients), intravitreal bevacizumab (1.25mg) was used one week prior to surgery. Fifteen eyes had...

Endophthalmitis after intravitreal anti-VEGF injection

The authors report the results of a retrospective multicentre study conducted at 17 retina referral centres to investigate the microbial spectrum of endophthalmitis after anti-VEGF injections. A total of 83 cases of culture-positive endophthalmitis (58.4%) were included. The most frequent...

IOP in children with uveitis

This is a retrospective study of paediatric uveitis (<16-years-old) between July 2002 to June 2016 of a total of 320 children from a single centre: 17.2 % (55/320 patients) developed raised IOP requiring therapy; 11.5% of eyes required glaucoma surgery...

Lacquer cracks

The purpose of this Japanese study was to analyse the morphologic features and natural progression patterns of lacquer cracks (LC). The presence of linear hyperfluorescence on the fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) was used as the standard for diagnosing the presence...

Subthreshold micropulse laser in BRVO

The purpose of this retrospective, consecutive, single-centre, non-randomised, and case-control study was to verify the therapeutic effects and safety of oedema (from branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO)) recurrence suppression effect using 577-nm subthreshold micropulse laser photocoagulation (SMLP) in combination with...

DRIL after macular oedema treatment in BRVO

The authors report the analysis of a single-site, retrospective, cross-sectional study to evaluate the association between disorganisation of the retinal inner layers (DRIL) and visual acuity (VA) after anti-VEGF treatment for macular oedema (MO) due to branch retinal vein occlusion...

Vitrectomy in retinal detachment associated with choroidal detachment

Hypotony, posterior retinal breaks, longer axial lengths and total retinal detachments (RD) are risk factors for development of RD associated with choroidal detachment (RRDCD). This study retrospectively analysed the anatomic outcomes and prognostic factors of vitrectomy in 175 patients with...

Macular atrophy and choriocapillaris nonperfusion

This Japanese study compared the choriocapillaris (CC) nonperfusion area as measured on OCTA with areas of macular atrophy (MA) measured by fundus autofluoresence (FAF). A total of 44 eyes were assessed (31 were treated with anti-VEGF alone and 13 had...

Is pre-eclampsia / eclampsia a risk factor for non-infective uveitis?

This population based retrospective matched cohort study was the first of its kind to suggest an association between preeclampsia / eclampsia (PEE) and non-infective uveitis (NIU). They used the Longitudinal National Health Insurance database in Taiwan to assess 2073 post-delivery...

Multimodal imaging in wet AMD

This novel study set out to determine grader agreement levels of various retinal imaging techniques, commonly used in the diagnosis of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Images from 52 eyes were by examined by two different observers. All images were...

CMV assessment

This is a retrospective, cross-sectional review of medical records from a consecutive series of patients with AIDS-related cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis who were examined at five HIV disease clinics in Yangon, Myanmar, in November 2006. All patients with CD4+ T lymphocytes...
