Myopic traction maculopa (MTM) and macular hole retinal detachments (MHRDs) are complex scenarios that demand accurate diagnoses and high surgical expertise.
Most commercially available OCT and OCTA devices can provide widefield OCTA through a combination of faster speeds, tracking, and the ability to montage images. This may revolutionize clinicians’ ability to assess and quantify retinal vascular disease.
Lamellar holes usually don’t require treatment, but it is important to recognize the eyes that may benefit from vitrectomy.
Using ultrasonic power to actuate a vitrectomy probe (hypersonic vitrectomy) allows for a “smooth steady flow of vitreous into a port that is oscillating at 1.7 million cycles per minute,” according to Carl C. Awh, MD.
A retinectomy performed under air using a sequenced approach can improve outcomes.
The metastatic prognosis does not increase when vitrectomy is performed at the time of brachytherapy.
Take-Home Message: YAG laser vitreolysis might be a treatment option for patients with complaints of floaters. Larger studies of longer duration are needed to corroborate these results.
Take-Home Message: The Telescopic Intra-Ocular Lens for Visually Impaired People Revolution system is promising to improve the vision in patients with maculopathies.
Temporary scleral buckling performed with a removable external device provides the benefits of scleral buckling while addressing its downsides as surgery for a detached retina.
