Strabismus outcomes after retinal detachment surgery

A retrospective study reviewed the motor outcomes of strabismus surgery in a cohort of 18 patients who had all previously undergone a scleral buckling procedure to treat retinal detachment. The mean age at strabismus surgery was 48 years (14-67) and...

Baerveldt Glaucoma Implant (BGI)

The authors describe surgical outcomes using the BGI and compared the different techniques used. The main differences described in the implantation technique include the use of a prolene stent in the tube, or fixation of the tube to the sclera....

Simulated ocular surgery: pars plana vitrectomy and scleral buckling surgery

See also Simulated ocular surgery and Simulated ocular surgery - strabismus surgery In this second article on ocular surgery simulation, we will discuss how vitreoretinal surgery can be simulated using high tech virtual reality modalities such as the Eyesi, as...

Strabismus and scleral buckling

The authors examine the incidence of strabismus following scleral buckle for retinal detachment surgery and the factors that influence the strabismus, its incidence, preventative measures and treatment options. This was a retrospective review of 344 patients (360 eyes) with a...

Long-term outcome of scleral-sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens

This is a retrospective review of 392 consecutive cases in 349 patients who had scleral-sutured intraocular lens (IOL) due to aphakia, subluxated or luxated IOL, over a 10-year period in one centre from Barcelona. Preop and postop data were collected...
