Conclusions: Hypotensive children treated with CCPD are at increased risk of developing AION, which often results in irreversible blindness. PMID: 25904772 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Peritoneal Dialysis International)

Conclusion: This novel technique for sutureless scleral fixation of a three-piece intraocular lens was well-tolerated 1 year after surgery. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Retinal vascular abnormalities and peripheral nonperfusion are novel findings in childhood glaucoma. Further studies are needed to understand the significance and possible long-term consequences of these findings. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Both capillary and arteriovenular components were regressed during monthly ranibizumab injections. However, CNV regrowth was observed in a group of patients during the as-needed treatment phase. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Ranibizumab is more permeable than bevacizumab through the highly-polarized RPE layer at clinically equivalent concentrations, and their permeability was partially protein kinase C–dependent. Ranibizumab might be more therapeutically effective than bevacizumab on choroidal neovascularization beneath the RPE layer. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Major and macular BRVOs are two distinct clinical entities. Initial and final fundus findings in the two types differ markedly. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: In this population-based study, PD is independently associated with AMD in those aged 60 years or younger. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Central but not peripheral drusen location was strongly associated with both [CFH+/+HTRA1−/−] and [CFH−/−HTRA1+/+]. Only [CFH+/+HTRA1−/−] was significantly associated with increased central drusen area. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Aflibercept is effective in reducing PED dimensions in treatment-resistant patients and is most effective in PEDs demonstrating some hyporeflective optical coherence tomography characteristics. Reduction in PED dimensions correlated with central macular thickness, but not with visual acuity changes. The role of PEDs as markers of disease requires further investigation; however, lesions should be monitored for retinal fluid recurrence. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: In eyes with noncentral diabetic macular edema and good visual acuity, topical nepafenac 0.1% 3 times daily for 1 year likely does not have a meaningful effect on optical coherence tomography–measured retinal thickness. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Since Zimmerman's report on histopathologic features of tumors of the nonpigmented ciliary body epithelium, there have been numerous publications and further observations on the clinical features and management of these intriguing neoplasms. (Source: RETINA)

Purpose: To investigate the association between the type of neovascularization (NV) and the clinical characteristics of nonneovascular fellow eyes in patients with unilateral, neovascular age-related macular degeneration. Methods: Eighty-three patients with treatment-naive, unilateral, neovascular age-related macular degeneration were retrospectively analyzed. Neovascular lesions were classified using both fluorescein angiography and optical coherence tomography as Type 1 (subretinal pigment epithelium), 2 (subretinal), 3 (intraretinal), or mixed NV. The associations between NV lesion type and baseline clinical and imaging characteristics of the fellow eye, including central geographic atrophy, noncentral geographic atrophy, pigmentary changes, soft drusen, cuticular drusen, reticular pseu...

Conclusion: The results of vitrectomy were not different in terms of anatomical and visual outcomes and surgical complications between eyes without tractional DME and eyes with tractional DME. (Source: RETINA)
Posted: April 25, 2015, 5:40 pm
Conclusion: An evolution in treatment strategy for controlling DME over the last decade was reflected by the replacement of focal laser therapy with intravitreal injections. This has produced significant improvements in visual and anatomical outcomes but has increased the frequency of office visits. (Source: RETINA)

Conclusion: Diabetic retinopathy progression can occur in patients with or without before DR after bariatric surgery, regardless of remission of T2DM. All patients with T2DM should be examined regularly by an ophthalmologist postoperatively, and more carefully patients with previous DR or albuminuria. (Source: RETINA)
