Example text

This is the rationale behind sustained double patching and elevation of the head. 3 Conservative Management Fig. 7 The blood in the retrohyaloidal space has settled inferiorly. To test whether it is clotted, the patient is placed in a supine position. As can be seen, the blood has not clotted, and it starts streaming toward the posterior pole within seconds. Double patching with elevation of the patient’s head has to be continued. The cryopexy lesions around the horseshoe tear at 1 o’clock are pigmented, and the retina is attached.

1 “Vitreous” hemorrhage. At the slit lamp examination, the vitreous is seen to be free of cells; the cells are in the retrohyaloidal space, obscuring the view of the retina. With a contact lens, the peripheral retina is visible, since in this area the vitreous is still attached and there are no retrohyaloidal blood cells obscuring the view. In the absence of vasculopathy in the other eye, what can the cause of the hemorrhage be? The most likely cause is a rhegmatogenous vitreous hemorrhage caused by a torn vessel or retinal tear, or both.

Is the vitreous detached? 2. Is the retina still attached? 3. Can the flap of a tear be detected? Next, examine the patient using biomicroscopy of the vitreous. If this shows that the vitreous gel is free of blood cells, it means the cells have collected on the posterior surface of the hyaloidal membrane, and are circulating in the retrohyaloidal space (Fig. 2). The retrohyaloidal space is a chamber filled with fluid (not gel), and the movements of the eye can maintain the red blood cells within it in suspension.
