The Bruch’s membrane opening-minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) is a recently introduced parameter of the neuroretinal rim. We analyzed the repeatability of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) measurements of BMO-MRW in epiretinal membrane (ERM) patients with peripapillary involvement, since the surface around the optic disc is distorted in such patients. BMO-MRW and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements were performed using SD-OCT in prospectively enrolled ERM patie...

Purpose To determine the mechanism of infection, clinical features, and risk factors of endophthalmitis after scleral fixation of an intraocular lens (IOL). Methods We included fifteen patients with infectious endophthalmitis after scleral fixation of an IOL between April 2004 and December 2017, as well as four patients found through a literature search. Thus, a total of nineteen patients were analyzed. Results Among nineteen eyes, infectious endophthalmitis developed at a mean of 23 months (ran...

Purpose The purpose of this paper was to study the bilateral choroidal thickness (CT) symmetry and differences in healthy individuals using wide-field swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods All participants underwent a wide-field 16-mm 1-line scan using SS-OCT. CTs were measured at the following 12 points: 3 points at 900 µm, 1800 µm, and 2700 µm away from the nasal optic disc margin (nasal peripapillary area), 1 point at the subfovea, 6 points at 900 µm, 1800 µm, and 2700 µ...

PURPOSE To compare visual improvements between initial intravitreal t-PA with gas injection before anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and anti-VEGF injection monotherapy for submacular haemorrhage (SMH) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical records of naive patients treated with intravitreal t-PA with gas injection before anti-VEGF (Group 1) or only with intravitreal anti-VEGF injection (Group 2) for SMH [disc area (DA) ≥ ...

Purpose We investigated risk factors for breakthrough vitreous hemorrhage (VH) after an intravitreal tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and gas injection in patients with submacular hemorrhage (SMH) associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods The medical records of patients diagnosed with SMH associated with AMD who received an intravitreal tPA (50 μg/0.05 mL) and perfluoropropane gas (0.3 mL) injection were reviewed retrospectively. We analyzed the associations of breakthrou...

Rationale Macular hole (MH) formation after vitrectomy is rare and it may be due to several mechanisms associated with change of foveolar anatomy by vitrectomy. If a MH develops after vitrectomy, surgical treatments including internal limiting membrane peeling and intravitreal gas injection are usually needed for repair of hole. Spontaneous closure of MH is much rarer. Patient concerns A 66-year-old patient had a vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment not involving the macula of the ri...

Neovascularization in the retina can cause loss of vision. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) serves an important role in the pathogenesis of retinal vascular diseases. Hypoxia is a notable cause of VEGF release and both STAT3 and ERBB2 are known to be associated with VEGF. In addition, STAT3 and ERBB2 interact with each other. In the present study, it was hypothesized that signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) and erbB‑2 receptor tyrosine kinase 2 (ERBB2) may be invo...
