Why So SEROUS? Surgical Management of Uveal Effusion Syndrome
YO Video Competition
Nanophthalmic uveal effusion syndrome is an extremely rare disease that tends to follow a relapsing–remitting course and can be very challenging to treat. Dr. Natasha Ferreira Santos Da Cruz and colleagues demonstrate using total thickness scleral flaps and sclerotomy in the 4 quadrants as a surgical approach to support transscleral drainage. Biopsy and pathologic evaluation revealed fibroblastic proliferation and hyaline degeneration of lamellar sclera. After 3 months postoperatively, the patient experienced significant improvement in choroidal effusions, with increases in visual acuity.
