Research and clinical interest
Diabetic vitrectomies: I had early interest in vitrectomy for diabetic macular edema and I proposed research project at Duke eye Center, North Carolina, USA of harvesting posterior hyaloid in tractional DME for immune-histochemical staining and was published in Retina in 2000.
Penetrating and perforating Ocular trauma due to high incidence of trauma in the region for the past 7 years.
High myopia and myopic macular hole retinal detachment: due to high prevalence in Egypt, I have a large experience in management of such challenging diseases and presented early cases comparing inverted ILM flap versus routine complete peelat AAO 2015 and a large study in EGVRS in 2017 and in EVRS in 2018.
Autologous Retinal Transplant (ART): I was one of the early pioneers adopting such technique in recurrent and myopic macular hole retinal detachment and I presented my early cases at Duke’s Advanced Vitreous surgery Course (AVS) in Durham in 2017 and currently working on further indications of such technique in macular holes and non-macular posterior retinal breaks. Recently presented a novel technique in MMH RD in EVRS 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal.
