Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the clinical outcome of transvitreal endoresection of retinal hemangioblastoma (RH) after feeder vessel ligature.

Methods: Prospective interventional case series of three consecutive patients aged 21 to 24 years with unilateral solitary RCH. Tumors 3.4 to 5.2 mm in diameter were endoresected transvitreally, after ligation of feeder vessels with a 20 guage bimanual technique.

Results: Reduction of exudative retinal detachment and resolution of macular exudative changes were observed with parallel improvement in vision. No tumor recurrence was noted, and visual acuity remained stable at the last follow-up.

Conclusions: Considering the natural history of RH, this study may offer endoresection as a treatment option for large solitary RH in advanced stages that are refractory to conventional treatment modalities.
