To describe a novel surgical technique for in-office treatment of hyphema.
Retrospective non comparative case series. 3 cases of hyphema in three different eyes treated in office using an anterior chamber gas fluid exchange technique were analyzed.
Hyphemas were associated with complications of underlying systemic and retinal disease and occurred in the postoperative period of other vitreoretinal surgical procedures. All patients’ hyphemas were succesfully treated using the described procedure. No patients required operating room surgery. One patient required repeat in office air fluid exchange. Another received concomitant anterior chamber bevacizumab injection as adjuvant therapy for iris neovascularization.
The method described appears to be a safe and effective procedure to treat hyphemas in certain patient populations.
