Retinal surgery laser risks?

Safe overall.: Retinal laser is used for diabetic retinopathy and for retinal tears most often. The treatments are usually safe and effective. Complications are rare though sometimes encountered. An errant laser can cause a black spot in the vision, but this is rare in experienced hands. Also rare are problems with the pupil dilating. The benefit of laser to patients should exceed the risks otherwise why do? ...Read more

Risk % of rd for someone with multiple lattice undergoing symptomatic posterior vitreous detachment? Prophylactic laser treatment recommended?

Risk % of rd for someone with multiple lattice undergoing symptomatic posterior vitreous detachment? Prophylactic laser treatment recommended?

Careful: You are at increased risk for retinal detachment. I recommend being cautious with surgery for floaters. Wait at least one year before proceeding with surgery. If they still persist and are unbearable then consider surgery. Symptoms usually resolve or improve with time in 99% of the people. Consult with a retina specialist to determine if prophylactic laser is indicated. ...Read more

Is there benefit of fuzeon (enfuvirtide) injections?

Is there benefit of fuzeon (enfuvirtide) injections?

Possibly: If Fuzeon (enfuvirtide) is not combined with 2 other drugs that also have activity against that person's hiv, resistance quickly develops and it stops working. So a new regimen needs to be carefully constructed using information on prior medications and HIV genotypes. It is an injection twice a day so people need to decide if this is right for them. Fuzeon (enfuvirtide) can be an important part of a new suppressive regimen. ...Read more

Does symptomatic (floaters) lattice degeneration require prophylactic laser treatment? Does it minimise the risk of potential future tractional tears?

Does symptomatic (floaters) lattice degeneration require prophylactic laser treatment? Does it minimise the risk of potential future tractional tears?

Depends: Lattice degeneration is thinning of peripheral retina from vitreous "pulling" on retina with whitening of blood vessels- forms a patch of "lattice" white blood vessels and thinned retina. Lattice can be associated with round retinal holes from the thinning and retinal tears at the edge-this can result in retinal detachment. Laser is used to treat symptomatic tears or risk of retinal detachment. ...Read more

How is an epidural steroid injection typically performed?

How is an epidural steroid injection typically performed?

It varies!: An epidural injection may be performed anywhere along the full length of the spine. It will usually be placed near the source of the pain or numbness: in the upper spine for neck pain, or the lower spine for back pain. In a pain clinic, sedation will sometimes be given to help with any discomfort. X-ray may be used for very precise positioning of the needle. ...Read more

Is a cortisone injections the same as epidural steroid injection?

Is a cortisone injections the  same as epidural steroid injection?

Well: Technically no difference, they are probably the same. However, if the cortisone injection is not done under an x-ray machine (fluoroscopic c-arm) then it could be that the cortisone injection may be just that an injection into the muscle like a trigger point injection. Speak with your doctor to get clarity about what you will be getting. ...Read more

Retinal tear laser complications?

Retinal tear laser complications?

Low risk procedure: A retinal tear can be surrounded by laser, which helps to prevent retinal detachment. One complication is that the treatment is not adequate, and a detachment happens anyway. There can be some discomfort during the laser procedure, but there is virtually no risk of inflammation, and no risk of infection. It is remotely possible that the laser could be applied to an unintended part of the retina. ...Read more

Insulin injection skin thickening?

Injection site?: Usually people asking about this are asking if Insulin can cause thickening of the skin at an injection site; the answer is yes. The solution is to stop using that site until the skin thins back down. After that, rotate your injection sites regularly, and never use one site more often than any of the others. ...Read more

Would atavatin injections reverse macular oedema?

Would atavatin injections reverse macular oedema?

Depends on cause: I am assuming Avastin (bevacizumab) is being asked about. It is used to treat many causes of macular edema, including from diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions (central and brach vein). Macular edema from inflammation does not respond (well) to Avastin (bevacizumab). Avastin (bevacizumab) is used most commonly for the treatment of Age Related Macular Degeneration. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Success of retinal reattachment surgery with laser?

Kind of...: Laser is used to surround retinal tears and prevent them from progressing to detachment. It can also be used to surround a small or localized detachment. This type of surgery is very successful. The fine point here is that the retina is not reattached, but stabilized. ...Read more
