We compared the efficacies of intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) and intravitreal conbercept (IVC) as the adjuvant pretreatments for vitrectomy with silicone oil infusion for tractional retinal detachment (TRD) secondary to proliferative diabetic retinopathy.

: To evaluate the role of intrasilicone oil injection of methotrexate (MTX) at the end of vitrectomy surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) associated with proliferative vitreoretinopathy...
Pars plana vitrectomy in combination with intraocular tamponade with silicone oil is a standard technique in the treatment of complex retinal detachment. Although the use of silicone oil has improved ...
Continuous intravenous (IV) infusion bumetanide has been associated with severe myalgia in case reports, and the package labeling lists a reported incidence of 0.2% for severe myalgia. The primary obj...
Compare fixed monthly dosing of ranibizumab to treat-and-extend (T&E) ranibizumab during a period of 24 months for diabetic macular edema (DME) treatment.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal conbercept after vitrectomy for the management of early-stage proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Hypothesis: intravitreal conber...
Treatment of severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) may require the use of silicone oil for long-term retinal tamponade to prevent recurrent retinal detachment. Massive bleeding d...
Silicone oil has been used as a surgical tool in complicated retinal detachment surgery. There are some complications occurring in pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade. Silico...
This study investigates the hypothesis that ranibizumab injection given into the eye is a safe and efficacious treatment option applied before surgical intervention of the proliferative di...
Subjects receiving 16% C3F8 gas tamponade during vitrectomy will have better visual acuity and similar postoperative complications to subjects who receive silicone oil tamponade during vit...
Synthetic organosiloxane gels that are formed from synthetic polymers of silicone oxide with organic sidechains (polydimethylsiloxane) by lengthening the polymer chains. Unlike silicone elastomers, they are not treated with amorphous silica. They are used as fillers in breast implants.
Polymers of silicone that are formed by crosslinking and treatment with amorphous silica to increase strength. They have properties similar to vulcanized natural rubber, in that they stretch under tension, retract rapidly, and fully recover to their original dimensions upon release. They are used in the encapsulation of surgical membranes and implants.
Use of any infusion therapy on an ambulatory, outpatient, or other non-institutionalized basis.
Implants used to reconstruct and/or cosmetically enhance the female breast. They have an outer shell or envelope of silicone elastomer and are filled with either saline or silicone gel. The outer shell may be either smooth or textured.
Removal of the whole or part of the vitreous body in treating endophthalmitis, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, intraocular foreign bodies, and some types of glaucoma.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
