PURPOSE To investigate macular changes in acute retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). METHODS Fifty-four premature infants with ROP and 20 controls underwent routine ROP screening with indirect ophthalmoscopy and imaging. A tabletop spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) scanner (Spectralis; Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) was(More)
PURPOSE To assess anatomic and visual outcome following vitrectomy for stage 4B retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) after 3 years follow-up. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 56 eyes (46 infants) with stage 4B ROP-related retinal detachment. Eyes underwent either lens-sparing vitrectomy (LSV) or combined lensectomy and vitrectomy (LV). Visual outcome after a(More)
AIM To report the Karnataka Internet Assisted Diagnosis of Retinopathy of Prematurity (KIDROP) program for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening in underserved rural areas using an indigenously developed tele-ROP model. MATERIALS AND METHODS KIDROP currently provides ROP screening and treatment services in three zones and 81 neonatal units in(More)
BACKGROUND Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is an important cause of childhood blindness in developing countries. AIM To report the spectrum of ROP and associated risk factors in babies weighing > 1250 g at birth in a developing country. SETTING AND DESIGN Institutional, retrospective, non-randomized, observational clinical case series. MATERIALS AND(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence, spectrum and treatment outcome of Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) in a rural neonatal nursery. METHODS This Prospective, observational, non-randomized study was conducted in a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at district headquarters in South India. 118 babies with birth weight ≤2000 g and/or period of(More)
PURPOSE To acquire high definition spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images of supine, non-anesthetized infants in the office by a novel modification of a commercially available table-top, chin rest system. METHOD Spectralis, a combined HRA+OCT device (Heidelberg Engineering, Heidelberg, Germany) was modified to convert the table-top(More)
PURPOSE To provide insight into the course of retinal detachment in eyes with aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (APROP). DESIGN Prospective, multicenter, masked clinical trial. METHODS Multicenter trial based on serial digital photographic imaging detailing five infants (in the Photographic Screening for Retinopathy of Prematurity(More)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized imaging of ocular structures and various disease conditions. Though it has been used in the clinic for some decades, the OCT has only recently found its way into the operating theater. Early attempts at intraoperative OCT, hand-held and microscope mounted, have already improved our understanding of the(More)
PURPOSE To compare single versus 2-session laser photoablation for flat neovascularization in cases with Zone 1 aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity. METHODS Twenty-nine Asian Indian infants with aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity were randomized; each eye received 1 of 2 methods (29 each in Group A or B) proposed by the PHOTO-ROP(More)
