Retinopathy of Prematurity Screening of Preterm Infants With Icteric Vitreous
On this episode, Dr. Timothy Murray welcomes Dr. Audina Berrocal from Bascom Palmer Eye Institute to discuss a recent JVRD case report from the Sept./Oct. issue on preterm newborns with ROP and vitreous opacification thought to be caused by hyperbilirubinemia. Because of vitreous opacification, these patients could not be properly examined for ROP. Explore how treatment with an intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor injection might be considered to delay disease development.
Opportunity Cost of Vitreoretinal Surgeries
On this episode, Dr. Timothy Murray welcomes Dr. Ella Leung, from Georgia Retina, to discuss Medicare reimbursements for the physician work component of vitreoretinal surgeries as a significant opportunity cost for the physician relative to office-based patient care of equivalent time. Explore how the current analysis compares Medicare physician reimbursements for the most common vitreoretinal surgeries against the potential reimbursements the physician could have generated by managing patients in the office.
Fungal Endophthalmitis Secondary to Aspergillus terreus Exacerbated by Intravitreal Dexamethasone in a Patient With Sarcoidosis
On this episode, Dr. Timothy Murray welcomes Dr. Caroline Awh, an ophthalmology resident, to discuss a recent JVRD case report from the Sept./Oct. issue on a rare cause of fungal endophthalmitis. Learn how this case poses significant diagnostic and management challenges.
Evolving Treatment Patterns in Diabetic Macular Edema Between 2015 and 2020
On this episode, Dr. Timothy Murray welcomes Dr. Paul Hahn of NJ Retina to discuss an article from the May/June issue of JVRD on DME treatments between 2015 and 2020 by US retina specialists. Learn whether practice patterns align with conclusions from major randomized DME clinical trials. Real-world outcomes and clinical trial outcomes will be compared.
Effect of Macular Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling on Single Surgery Success Rates of Vitrectomy
On this episode, Dr. Timothy Murray welcomes Dr. Mark Seamone from the University of Alberta to discuss an article from the May/June issue of JVRD on surgery success rates of vitrectomy with a macular-off retinal detachment. Learn whether peeling the ILM is the right approach for patients in certain subsets of retinal detachments. Discover whether ILM peeling of the macula in primary, uncomplicated macula-off RRD has a statistically significant benefit in reducing the risk of recurrent RRD.
