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...

Intravitreal functional plasminogen in branch retinal vein occlusion

Branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) is the second most common vascular disorder of the eye. Intravitreal injections of anti-VEGF agents and corticosteroids have proven efficacy. Posterior vitreous cortex (PVC) adhesion has been shown to support the development of retinal vein...

Patient reported outcomes in adolescents with inherited retinal diseases

This was a two-centre validation study of two sets of patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) for adolescents (13-17- years-old) with inherited retinal diseases. The measures were the Michigan Retinal Degeneration Questionnaire (MRDQ) and the Michigan Vision-Related Anxiety Questionnaire (MVAQ). Both...

Cystoid macular oedema following retinal detachment surgery

There are limited studies examining the incidence and risk factors for postoperative cystoid macular oedema (CMO) following rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. Postoperative CMO is thought to be due to pro-inflammatory state, where numerous cytokines lead to tight junction dysfunction,...

Comparison of thrombolysis and conservative management in acute retinal ischaemia

The authors present a retrospective cohort study of individuals presenting with acute, painless, monocular vision loss and diagnosed with acute retinal ischaemia. Reasons for exclusion were iatrogenic aetiology, transient vision loss, missing initial visual acuity data, more than 16 hours...

Genetics counsellors in inherited retinal disease clinics

This is a questionnaire-based study from the USA of genetics counsellors with a primary role working within ophthalmology services. The purpose was to investigate the roles currently undertaken, to assess workload, and to acquire data on the experience of genetics...

The incidence of retinal vein occlusion in patients with pseudoexfoliation glaucoma

In this retrospective study the authors aimed to evaluate PXF as an independent risk factor for the occurrence of retinal vein occlusion (RVO). Three hundred PXF glaucoma patients (PXF group), 300 non-PXF glaucoma patients, and 599 non glaucoma non-PXF (nGnP...

Retinal changes in Leber hereditary optic neuropathy

The objective of this study was to describe the changes in the retinal ganglion cell complex (GCC) relative to the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) over time, in patients with Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). For this study, 21 patients...

Retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in migraine

The aim of this study is to evaluate retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness changes in children with migraine compared to healthy controls and analyse RNFL changes dependent on type of migraine. This was an observation case control study of...

Are retinal vein occlusions seasonal? And if so why might that be?

Some studies have reported a strong seasonal pattern to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) occurrence with a peak in January, but other studies have failed to replicate this finding. The authors sought to determine data for Stockholm’s seasonal variation in...

Care journeys of patients with central retinal artery occlusion

The authors present a retrospective case note review of all adult patients referred for or diagnosed with central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) to a single tertiary hospital over a 10½ year period. A total of 181 patients were included in...

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...
