There is controversy about the most appropriate operating methods for complicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) including multiple tears, and surgical techniques may be changed according to the preference of the surgeon. In this retrospective study, we compared the surgical results of conventional buckling surgery and vitrectomy with silicone oil(More)
We determined the incidence and causes of clinical and angiographic cystoid macular edema (CME) after uncomplicated phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation in otherwise normal eyes. This study comprised 252 eyes of 252 patients who had uncomplicated phacoemulsification with continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis and in-the-bag acrylic(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to identify the prognostic factors influencing outcome after the removal of retained posterior segment intraocular foreign bodies (IOFBs) by pars plana vitrectomy. METHODS We reviewed the records of 42 consecutive patients (39 men and 3 women with a mean age of 26.8 years) operated between January 2001 and January 2005(More)
AIMS To evaluate the outcomes and complications of 23-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) with Silicone oil (SO) tamponade in complex vitreoretinal diseases. SETTINGS AND DESIGN Ege university hospital ophthalmology department. Retrospective case series. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty eyes of 40 patients with diabetic tractional retinal(More)
To evaluate the factors affecting the anatomic success of treatment of retinal detachments (RD) by scleral buckling surgery. One-hundred and two eyes of 102 patients with rhegmatogenous RD operated on by scleral buckling surgery were included in the study. Results were analyzed according to the anatomic status of the retina at the most recent follow-up(More)
A surgical technique was developed for traumatic iridodialysis repair using a small partial-thickness scleral flap and a 24-gauge disposible hypodermic needle. This procedure is a "direct iridodialysis-site approach" closed chamber technique with minimal surgical trauma that can be used in phakic, pseudophakic, or aphakic eyes.
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence and the risk factors of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis after cardiac transplantation in visually asymptomatic patients. METHODS Ophthalmoscopic examinations including fundus fluorescein angiography were performed in asymptomatic patients who had cardiac transplantation at Ege University Hospital between April 1998 and(More)
We describe the use of an illuminated endochopper (a prototype instrument produced by DORC International) in the management of a posteriorly dislocated lens nucleus or lens particles. This instrument helps to divide the lens nucleus or its fragments into small pieces and thus reduces time and ultrasound energy.
