Background: Postoperative endophthalmitis is a severe complication after intraocular surgery. The aim of this pilot study was to investigate the safety of intracameral cefuroxime in combined vitrectomy and phacoemulsification for cataract and various vitreoretinal disease. Methods: The charts of 152 patients who underwent combined phacoemulsification, intraocular lens implant and pars plana vitrectomy were reviewed. The final tamponade was chosen among fluid, air, gas or silicone oil, based on the requirement of each single case...

PURPOSE: To investigate the efficacy and safety of a primary core vitrectomy technique for combined phacovitrectomy in eyes showing a poor red reflex because of dense vitreous hemorrhage before cataract surgery. METHODS: A total of 156 eyes from 156 patients, who underwent combined phacovitrectomy because of cataract and dense vitreous hemorrhage, and who were followed up for at least 6 months were included. The patients were divided into a primary phacoemulsification group (Group A, 80 eyes) who underwent phacoemulsification first followed by total vitrectomy and a primary vitrectomy group (Group B, 76 eyes) who underwent core vitrectomy first followed by cataract surgery and followed by total vitrectomy...

PURPOSE: To determine whether preoperative adjustments are required for intraocular lens calculations in combined phacovitrectomy surgery. METHODS: A single-center, retrospective study of 50 eyes that underwent combined phacovitrectomy and a control group of 50 eyes after cataract surgery over a 3-year period by a single anterior segment surgeon and a single posterior segment surgeon. Main outcome measures were predicted refractive error (RE), as determined by SRK/T and Holladay 1 formulas, change compared with actual RE, surgically induced astigmatism, and the relationships between preoperative central foveal thickness or change in central foveal thickness and final RE...

Combined cataract and vitreoretinal surgery results in better compliance in patients with posterior segment pathology and should be the preferred approach to reduce the high rate of cataract development after vitreoretinal surgery and to improve earlier visual acuity. Technological advances in both anterior and posterior segment surgery are leading to the development of instruments with a smaller diameter and more efficient tools, resulting in a minimizing of the tissue trauma related to the surgery, acceleration of functional recovery and increasing patient comfort...

PURPOSE: To compare the effects of topical diclofenac and betamethasone on postoperative inflammation after combined sutureless cataract and vitreoretinal surgery in patients with macular hole (MH), epiretinal membrane (ERM), diabetic macular edema (DME), and rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS: The study involved 180 eligible eyes that underwent the combined surgery, followed by treatment with topical diclofenac (n = 100) or betamethasone (n = 80) for 12 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: To describe options for vitreoretinal surgery in the management of massive suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH). METHODS: Visual acuity (VA), ocular findings, timing of surgical intervention, surgical procedures, and outcomes of four patients diagnosed with massive SCH and admitted to the University Eye Clinic Essen were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS: Four eyes of four patients (mean age, 82 years; range, 74-89 years) were studied...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the safety and surgical results of combined pars plana vitrectomy and femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (femtophacovitrectomy). MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective, non-comparative case series was conducted by selecting patients with cataract and vitreoretinal pathology who underwent femtophacovitrectomy by a single surgeon at the Hospital Central Militar between June 2013 and February 2014. An evaluation was made of the preoperative characteristics, surgical indications, results, and postoperative complications, with a minimum follow-up of 3 months...

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical outcomes of double membrane (ERM & ILM) peeling and the effect of combined cataract surgery and SF6 gas injection in vitreoretinal interface (VRI) disorders. This is a retrospective interventional study. Seventy-two eyes with idiopathic vitreoretinal interface abnormalities that underwent 23 gauge pars plana vitrectomy with "double stain and double peel" technique were reviewed. SD-OCT was used to classify VRI disorders into following 4 groups: 44 in ERM type, 17 in VMTS type, 7 in macular pseudohole (MPH) type, and 4 in lamellar macular hole (LMH) type...
