PURPOSE To induce posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) in patients with nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) by injecting an intravitreal gas bubble of SF6 and to compare the evolution of the diabetic retinopathy between eyes with gas induced PVD and non-injected eyes without PVD. METHODS An intravitreal gas bubble of SF6 was injected via the pars(More)
Background: Central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) is a disorder with potentially blinding complications, particularly when associated with retinal ischemia. There is no reliable treatment for ischemic CRVO. Methods: We developed a new approach for ischemic cases of CRVO consisting of vitrectomy, posterior hyaloid detachment, and four erbium:YAG(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the contribution of genetic variants of complement factor H (CFH), complement component 2 and 3 (C2 and C3), complement factor B (CFB), and age-related maculopathy susceptibility 2 (ARMS2) to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) risk in the Mexican Mestizo population. METHODS Analysis included 282 unrelated Mexican patients with(More)
PURPOSE To determine the anatomic and visual outcome of children that had undergone vitreoretinal surgery. METHOD 229 clinical files where analyzed at our center, were included 73 patients, 77 eyes. We considered those who were 18 years old or younger and had undergone retinal surgery, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) was excluded. RESULTS The mean age(More)
The purpose of this study is to determine baseline vitreous humor temperature during a combined phacoemulsification and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) procedure; to determine what is the temperature variation during phacoemulsification; and to compare vitreous temperature to sublingual temperature. The methods used are prospective, interventional and(More)
