Abstract
: To simulate the posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in the rabbit, 1 IU hyaluronidase and/or 0.2 ml of perfluoropropane gas was intravitreally injected. Ophthalmoscopic, light microscopic examination prepared by cryotechnique, electron microscopic examination, and electroretinogram were done on the 3rd and 28th postoperative days. As a result, the eyes undergone simultaneous intravitreal injection of 1 IU hyaluronidase and 0.2 ml perfluoropropane gas showed membranous structure split from the internal limiting membrane of the superior retina in 3 days after injection. The eyes also demonstrated membranous structure separated from the superior retina after 28 days, simulating vitreous detachment. On the contrary, neither agent alone induced vitreous detachment. No toxic retinal changes associated with simultaneous intravitreal injection of 1 IU hyaluronidase and 0.2 ml perfluoropropane gas were observed. Therefore, with a future support by histologic examination other than cryotechnique and by immunohistochemical analysis, the simultaneous intravitreal injection of perfluoropropane gas and hyaluronidase would be a promising method to induce vitreous detachment in non-vitrectomized eye.

PURPOSE: The optic nerve drusen (DON) are precisely described in many papers. But fewer papers evaluate real haemodynamics parameters (HP) in DON. Clinically, it has been shown, that the development and progression of visual field changes in DON is closely related to the hemodynamics of the ocular vascular supply - the optic nerve. DON can visually overlap the excavation optic disc, making it difficult to evaluate scotomas of the visual field in glaucoma. METHODS: HP was prospectively evaluated ...

Anomalous PVD is the fundamental cause of vitreo-maculopathies with vitreo-macular traction and macular pucker, both associated with macular edema.

Hyaluronan (HA) is a member of the glycosaminoglycan (GAG) family of polysaccharides, which are composed of repeating disaccharide units, each consisting of hexosamine (usually N -acetylglucosamine or N -acetylgalactosamine) glycosidically linked to either uronic (glucuronic or iduronic) acid or galactose. The nature of the predominant repeating unit is characteristic for each GAG, and the relative Hyaluronidase as a Vitreous Liquefactant

Vitreolytic agents are characterized by their ability to induce vitreous liquefaction, separation of the posterior hyaloid, or both. Both enzymatic and nonenzymatic approaches have been tested in experimental models. While several are effective inducers of a posterior vitreous detachment, in vivo testing indicated the presence of a narrow safety profile in most tested compounds, limiting further development. The lack of a standardized methodology to assess for the presence of a PVD in both exper...

Vitreous constitutes about 80 % of the volume of the human eye. It is an extended extracellular matrix that is composed of collagen, hyaluronan, and other extracellular matrix molecules but is 98 % water. In both health as well as disease, the molecular composition and organization of vitreous dictates the structure and function of the vitreous body as well as the status of the vitreoretinal interface. During aging, there is reorganization of vitreous macromolecules resulting in gel liquefaction...

Posterior vitreous detachment is the commonest and most important event that occurs in the vitreous. As the vitreous ages, the normal architectural features apparent in childhood gradually disappear as degeneration causes syneresis, lacuna (cavity) formation and collapse of the vitreous gel. The collagen fibrils disintegrate and aggregate giving rise to symptomatic floaters (Bishop et al. 2004; Akiba et al. 1993). There is loss of sodium hyaluronate (Larsson and Osterlin 1985) and an increase in...

Purpose To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a preoperative intravitreous injection of microplasmin in patients scheduled for vitreous surgery. Design Phase 2, multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-masked, parallel-group, dose-ranging clinical trial. Participants One hundred twenty-five patients scheduled for pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), primarily for treatment of either vitreomacular traction or macular hole. Intervention A single intravitreous injection of either microplasmin at 1 of 3 dos...

Purpose: The aim of the present study was to quantify and compare the vitreolytic effect of plasmin, hyaluronidase, and a combination of the two. Methods: Thirty-six rabbits were randomized into 3 groups: (A) twelve rabbits had an intravitreal injection of plasmin 1 U with hyaluronidase 10 U/0.1 mL into the right eye, (B) twelve rabbits had an injection of plasmin alone (1 U/0.1 mL), and (C) twelve rabbits had an injection of hyaluronidase alone (10 U/0.1 mL). The left eye of each rabbit was use...
