PURPOSE To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a heavy silicone oil (HSO) tamponade for complicated retinal detachment (RD) surgery. DESIGN Prospective consecutive interventional case series study. PARTICIPANTS The study included 26 patients with RD complicated by severe proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) in the inferior quadrants. METHODS All(More)
PURPOSE The presence of cellular deposits on the surface of intraocular lenses (IOLs) is a manifestation of: (1) the breakdown of the blood-aqueous barrier produced by surgery; and (2) foreign body reaction induced by lens implantation. The purpose of this study was to assess the presence of cellular deposits on the surfaces of various IOL materials. (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the use of triamcinolone acetonide to stain the internal limiting membrane (ILM) during vitreoretinal surgery. METHODS A prospective clinical interventional case series study was performed, including 16 patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy. Seven patients had proliferative diabetic retinopathy with macular edema. Seven patients(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and other variables in hole closure and functional success rate after idiopathic macular hole surgery. DESIGN Retrospective, multicenter, observational study. METHODS The records of 1627 patients operated on for idiopathic macular hole were collected retrospectively from 28(More)
PURPOSE To determine the influence of intraocular lens (IOL) material on anterior capsular opacification and membrane growth over the anterior IOL surface in patients who have undergone standardized small-incision cataract surgery and foldable IOL implantation in the capsular bag. DESIGN Randomized controlled trial. PARTICIPANTS Eighty-eight cataract(More)
PURPOSE To assess the refractive effects and incidence of postoperative complications in patients with high myopia after cataract extraction. SETTING University Eye Clinic, Trieste, Italy. METHODS This noncomparative retrospective study comprised all eyes (N = 388) having cataract extraction and implantation of an intraocular lens with a power less than(More)
PURPOSE To assess the biocompatibility of 3 hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs) by evaluating the postoperative cell reaction on the IOL surface, anterior capsule opacification (ACO) rate, and presence of membrane growth over the anterior IOL surface. SETTING University Eye Clinic of Trieste, Trieste, Italy. METHODS In this prospective study,(More)
AIM To evaluate the visual function evolution of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) tears in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) according to type of occurrence [spontaneous or secondary to anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) injection] and the topographic location of the tear after a two-year follow-up period. METHODS A(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the formation of glistenings in foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs) of various materials after cataract surgery. SETTING University Eye Clinic of Trieste, Trieste, Italy. METHODS In this prospective study, 273 patients were randomized to have implantation of 1 of 7 types of foldable IOLs in the capsular bag after phacoemulsification.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) may help to diagnose retinal/choroidal detachment and may help to differentiate intraocular lumps in cases with equivocal features on conventional grayscale and Doppler modes. MATERIALS AND METHODS The institutional review board approved this retrospective study. The need for informed(More)
