Uveal effusion syndrome: diagnosis and management

S. Chien Wong & Paul M. Sullivan
Uveal effusion syndrome (UES) is a difficult condition to accurately diagnose and treat. In this video, we illustrate the features, differential diagnoses and management of UES using a combination of surgical clips and 3D animation. Surgical treatment with sclerectomy is demonstrated, including tips for effective control of sclerectomy depth. Good anatomical and visual outcomes can be achieved following sclerectomy for UES. Uveal effusion syndrome is a challenging condition to diagnose and treat. Good outcomes can...

Transretinal biopsy technique for cytogenetic phenotyping of posterior uveal melanoma

Javier Elizalde
Cytogenetic phenotyping is a world-wide accepted procedure in ocular oncology to know the risk of metastatic disease of uveal melanoma. We describe our effective and safe vitreoretinal surgical technique to obtain a sample of melanomas located posterior to the equator. A three-port 25-gauge microcannulae system through the pars plana is used to insert a vitrector or a 27-gauge needle to obtain the tissue, depending on the size of the tumor. Although minimal bleeding may be...

Incision making in small gauge surgery

Manish Nagpal
Small gauge surgery or sutureless surgery is gaining widespread popularity. Incision making is the key to the success of achieving a good postoperative wound. Various techniques have evolved related to the incision making and this video discusses the steps of making a good incision. Significance of retracting the conjunctiva using a stabiliser and then placing a biplanar incision are demonstrated. Steps to acheive a good incision closure at the time of removal of cannulas and...

Surgery of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR): A step by step approach

Manish Nagpal & Vikram Mehta
Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) often leads to failure in retinal detachment surgery. Surgeons need to be well versed with managing different aspects of retinal detachment complicated by PVR to achieve successful outcomes. Various techniques such as membrane peeling, dissection, air fluid exchange , endo-drainage, endo laser, usage of perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL), retinectomies etc. are shown in detail. Carefully assessing the PVR and managing it can improve the surgical outcomes in these cases.

Suprachoroidal drug delivery: A novel approach in treatment of wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

Gabor B. Scharioth
Currently several approaches exist for drug delivery to the back of the eye of which intravitreal injection is the most popular. This video described a new technique for drug administration to the back of the eye, namely to the suprachoroid space using a microcatheter. The catheter is introduced under the choroid using a transscleral approach at temporal superior quadrant. The exact position of the microcatheter is visualized by a blinking light source at its tip....
