Posterior Segment Ocular Trauma: Timing and Indications for Vitrectomy

Description

Ocular trauma is still a leading cause of ocular morbidity, despite strong anatomical barriers provided by the nature of the eye. Posterior segment injuries occur less frequently than anterior segment injuries but may result in permanent and severe visual loss. There is still controversy in regard to timing and extent of vitrectomy in posterior ocular trauma, as surgical repair of these cases is associated with high risk of complications. There are different approaches depending of the available equipment and experience of the surgeon. In the last years, modern instrumentation in vitreoretinal surgery allowed for salvation of eyes after penetrating and perforating injuries. Ocular trauma surgeons can benefit from sharing their experience in surgical strategies.

We invite investigators to contribute original research as well as review articles that deal with all the innovative areas for vitreoretinal surgery in posterior segment ocular trauma.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Using small-gauge vitrectomy systems (25G and 27G) in posterior segment injury
  • Methods of removal of intraocular foreign bodies
  • Management of traumatic retinal detachment
  • Vitrectomy in posttraumatic endophthalmitis
  • Surgical procedures in suprachoroidal haemorrhage
  • Treatment of traumatic macular hole
  • Dealing with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) in traumatized eyes
  • Surgical pearls during vitrectomy in severely traumatized eyes
  • Using temporary keratoprosthesis during vitrectomy
