PURPOSE Small-gauge vitrectomy has been used to treat various vitreous and macular pathologies. Trocar/cannula insertion may raise intraocular pressure (IOP) to the point it might become detrimental to the eye, especially in the setting of open-globe trauma and eyes with severe vascular compromise. We propose to determine the magnitude of this IOP rise and(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of artificial vision by using a direct optic nerve electrode (AV-DONE) in a blind patient with retinitis pigmentosa (RP). This device, comprising three wire electrodes (0.05 mm in diameter), was implanted into the optic disc of a patient with RP with no light perception vision and the device(More)
PURPOSE To describe the feasibility of perfluorocarbon-perfused vitrectomy (PCPV) using a 25-gauge system in complicated retinal detachment cases. METHODS Thirteen nonconsecutive patients with complicated retinal detachment (either tractional secondary to proliferative diabetic retinopathy or rhegmatogenous) who would not normally be selected for 25-gauge(More)
This retrospective report describes our 20 months'experience using intravitreal injections of bevacizumab for the treatment of several retinal diseases. We describe our experience after 1765 intravitreal injections of bevacizumab in the treatment of different proliferative retinopathies - retinopathy of prematurity, choroidal neovascularization, diabetic(More)
