Persistence is key when promoting surgical innovationsA surgical innovation is defined as a quantum improvement in the treatment of a particular disease or group of diseases, and it usually is developed by an individual or a small group working together, said John Thompson, MD.
Dye from açai fruit safe, effective for use during chromovitrectomy
Dye from açai fruit safe, effective for use during chromovitrectomyA dye made from the açai fruit (Euterpe oleracea) is safe for use in human eyes and effective for identifying the posterior hyaloid and internal limiting membrane (ILM) during vitreoretinal surgery, according to phase I preliminary study results.
Strategies for macular hole recurrence after small-gauge vitrectomyFindings from a retrospective review provide insights about the outcomes of surgery for recurrent macular holes in the era of small-gauge vitrectomy and possible strategies for reducing their occurrence, said Tarek S. Hassan, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
Findings reaffirm ocriplasmin success for symptomatic VMA over long termResults of a 2-year phase IIIb study include findings consistent with earlier information about treatment success with ocriplasmin injection for symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion and new information about efficacy and safety over the longer term.
Identifying common macular conditions with OCTEffectively manage patients through diagnosis and interpretation
Vitreoretinal traction leads to a macular holeA 51 year-old female presented with recent-onset “distorted” vision in the right eye. The duration was described as 3 days and specifically, she used the terms “fragmented” and “pulsing” to describe her symptoms.
Determining ocriplasmin successA new agent aimed at treating symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion can affect patients differently depending on several components.
