Purpose: This study describes a novel surgical technique of fibrin glue-assisted retinopexy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (GuARD) without oil or gas tamponade after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Methods: This pilot clinical trial included five eyes of five patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RD). A complete PPV was done in all cases followed by fluid–air exchange, laser photocoagulation around the break/s, and application of 0.1–0.2 mL of fibrin glue. No air, long-acting gas...

Intraocular gases have been used in vitreoretinal surgery for over 40 years. The aim of this study was to review the complications related to the use of expandable gases in vitrectomy and their management. A PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Embase search was conducted using the terms “intraocular gas” and “vitrectomy for retinal detachment.” Of the articles retrieved by this method, all publications in English and abstracts of non-English publications were reviewed. Intraocular pressure elevation w...

ABSTRACTPurpose: To compare the surgical outcomes of glued intraocular lens (GIOL) and sutured scleral fixated intraocular lens (SFIOL) implantation. Methods: A retrospective, interventional case series of 60 patients (68 eyes) who underwent GIOL (28 eyes: 11 primary; 17 secondary) and SFIOL (40 eyes: 24 primary; 16 secondary) in a tertiary eye care institute was done. The main outcome measures were complications, time taken for surgery, postoperative refractive outcomes, and final best-correcte...

Optic disc pit is a rare congenital anomaly of the optic nerve. Retinal detachment is a common complication with poor outcomes. Many surgical alternatives have been described for the treatment of this condition, producing variable results. Herein, the authors describe four cases of optic disc pit-associated macular detachment managed with pars plana vitrectomy, fluid-air exchange, drainage of subretinal fluid through the optic disc pit, temporal peripapillary laser, and application of Evicel fib...

Purpose This study describes the long-term clinical outcomes of autologous simple limbal epithelial transplantation (SLET), a relatively new technique of limbal stem cell transplantation. Design This was a single-center prospective interventional cases series. Participants This study included 125 patients, 65 adults and 60 children who developed unilateral limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) after suffering with ocular surface burns and underwent SLET between 2010 and 2014. Methods A 1-clock hour...

Sir, We designed a study to evaluate the biocompatibility of fibrin glue (Beriplast®) in the vitreoretinal surgery by testing the same in an animal model. We have evaluated the existence of toxicity to the retina using clinical observation, histological analysis, and functional evaluation (electroretinogram). Tissue adhesives have a long history of use in ophthalmology and have been used as a structural filler or support instead of donor tissue, as a tissue fixative, for closing and apposing wou...

BACKGROUND: Optic disk pit-associated macular detachment is a challenging condition to treat. Many surgical methods have been used to treat this condition with varying degrees of success. METHODS: We managed optic disk pit-associated macular detachment in three cases with pars plana vitrectomy, fluid-air exchange, drainage of subretinal fluid through the optic disk pit, application of Tisseel fibrin sealant (Baxter Healthcare Corporation, CA) to the optic disk pit, C3F8 gas injection, and postop...

Background: The incidence of retinal detachment in New Zealand is not currently documented in the literature. This study sought to determine the annual incidence of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) and associated risk factors in northern New Zealand. Methods: Epidemiological and clinical data were collected for all patients presenting with a RRD in a 12-month interval in a confined geographical area of New Zealand. Results: One hundred and forty-one patients presented between May 1997 and...
