Aqueous humour cytokine levels in PCV and nAMD

This study looks into the possible roles of various cytokines or growth factors in the pathogenesis of exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by comparing aqueous levels of 14 cytokines between eyes with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) and those with neovascular...

OCT in proliferative diabetic retinopathy

This report set out to describe the anatomical relationships between retinal neovascular complexes (NVC), the posterior vitreous, and the vitreoretinal interface in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy using spectral domain OCT. The following was recorded for each NVC 1) posterior...

Two case reports of late onset adbucens nerve palsy following carotid-cavernous fistula treatment

This report presents two cases of abducens palsy developing with late onset following endovascular treatment for carotid-cavernous fistula. Following this common and effective treatment for carotid-cavernous fistula, an immediate cranial nerve palsy is a common finding. It usually resolves spontaneously....

Treatment efficacy of stage 4 ROP

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of combined vitrectomy and anti-VEGF injection for advanced stage 4 ROP with extensive neovascular proliferation (NF). The study included nine infants; six bilateral and three unilateral. Seven were female and the mean gestational...

How many injections in nAMD: ranibizumab vs. aflibercept

Intravitreal anti-VEGF injections make up a large proportion of the workload in ophthalmology clinics. Since the introduction of aflibercept with eight weekly injections there has been an option to use a treatment which may require less treatment, with potential cost...

Four year outcomes of macular degeneration treated with ranibizumab

The authors report on a retrospective study of neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) patients treated with a variable ranibizumab dosing regimen over a period of four years (from January 2007 to December 2011). A total of 600 treatment naïve eyes...

The effects of anti-VEGF therapy for NvAMD on retinal vasculature

This retrospective consecutive case series examined 54 eyes of 54 treatment-naïve neovascular age-related macular degeneration (N-AMD) patients. Thirty-three eyes received intravitreal aflibercept injections, and 21 eyes received intravitreal ranibizumab injections with unaffected fellow eyes (54 eyes) as controls. All image...

RPE tears after intravitreal Lucentis

The current hypothesis regarding retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) tears is the contraction and fibrosis in choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) tissue after anti-VEGF therapy can induce rips in the overlying RPE. This South Korean study aimed to identify the association between RPE...

Cutaneous malignant melanoma metastasis to pseudophakic lens

Metastases to the eye and orbit are rare and intraocular cutaneous malignant melanoma metastasis (ICMM) is exceedingly rare, representing around 5%. There have only been three previous cases of ICMM to the lens in the literature, all of which presented...

Combined anti-VEGF and PDT for wet AMD

The authors report on a retrospective case series of combined anti-VEGF and photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) refractory to anti-VEGF monotherapy alone. The criteria for treatment failure of anti-VEGF monotherapy were persistent subretinal...

Macular atrophy with aflibercept

The authors of this paper set out to investigate the prevalence of macular atrophy in treatment-naive patients with neovascular AMD undergoing aflibercept monotherapy (three monthly loading injections followed by subsequent treatment every two months). Case notes over a three year...

Inflammation and microvascular changes in diabetic retinopathy

Studies have shown that neurodegeneration and inflammation in the retina start early in diabetic retinopathy (DR) and can be present before the latter is clinically evident. The aim of this retrospective review of 99 diabetic patients was to evaluate retinal...
