AIM The aim was to study the structural sequelae and refractive outcome after laser treatment for Type 1 prethreshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in Asian Indian eyes. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review of infants with Type 1 prethreshold ROP (defined according to the Early Treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity study) undergoing(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility and short-term outcome of 23-gauge vitrectomy in children for various vitreoretinal conditions. METHODS A retrospective chart review was conducted of consecutive children younger than 14 years who underwent 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy for various vitreoretinal conditions from January 2008 to(More)
PURPOSE To study demographic profile of infants presenting as stage 5 retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) at a tertiary referral center of North India. METHODS A retrospective review of consecutive infants with stage 5 ROP from 1999-2008. Various parameters retrieved included the inborn (born at level III nursery of our institute) /outborn (born outside(More)
PURPOSE To analyze the spectrum of aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity and outcome after laser treatment. METHODS This is a retrospective review of 81 eyes of 44 consecutive infants diagnosed to have aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity and treated between September 2005 and March 2007 from a large tertiary care center in North(More)
PURPOSE To analyze risk factors for retinal detachment in eyes with aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) treated with confluent laser photocoagulation. DESIGN Retrospective, consecutive, interventional case series. METHODS Infants undergoing laser treatment for aggressive posterior ROP from January 2006 through June 2010 participated.(More)
To study intersibling variability of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in twins and determine its risk factors. A retrospective chart review of twin neonates developing ROP at a tertiary center over a 5 year period (January 2004 to December 2008). Twin pairs with intersibling variability of ROP were retrieved based on one of the following criterion: (1)(More)
In this retrospective case series, we report the spectrum and outcomes of aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (APROP) in infants ≥ 1500 g birth weight. Twenty-nine eyes of 15 infants are included. All infants were referred from level I or II nurseries, received supplemental unmonitored oxygen for prolonged duration (>1 week) and had multiple(More)
AIMS To study a hybrid pattern of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) demonstrating both ridge tissue (simulating staged ROP) and flat neovascularisation (simulating aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity (APROP)) in the same eye. METHODS Retrospective chart review from January 2006 to June 2010. We reviewed the retinal drawings and Retcam images(More)
