We get it, virtual conferences are convenient — jumping from one session to the other at the click of a mouse.
The downside? Something’s gotta give and you would most likely miss important information while session hopping. Well, fret not.
We’re here to give you a lowdown on things you might’ve missed during important RETINAWS sessions.
Treading cautiously in eyes with endophthalmitis Dr. Jose Garcia Arumi from the Instituto de Microcirurgia Ocular, ลาวสามัคคี
Universidad Autonoma, Barcelona, Spain, presented a case of endophthalmitis after intravitreal injection.
“Removal of the lens was difficult because of a very cloudy cornea, and we had to use an accessory light to visualize and dissect over the retina,” shared
Dr. Arumi. “The process of dissection and vitrectomy, however, resulted in bleeding due to the acutely inflamed tissues.
He added that after removing the remnants of the lens capsule, fluid air exchange was done, with antibiotics
and silicone oil placed in the vitreous cavity. “Imaging revealed an atrophic appearance of the retina.
The results were good with 20/200 final visual acuity in the patient,” he noted.
“With silicone oil, I recommend reducing the antibiotic dose by half because the meniscus between the silicone oil and retina is small.
Hence, a need to reduce the dose.” Posterior retinal adhesions in Stickler syndrome Meanwhile, in his presentation,
Dr. Stratos Gotzaridis from Athens, Greece, shared that he had a case of a 15-yearold boy who had lost his contralateral eye following Stickler syndrome.
“During surgery, we discovered that the eye already had 360 degrees prophylactic laser treatment,” said Dr. Gotzaridis.
