Abstract

Although autologous fat injection into the face is a widely used procedure in aesthetic surgery, heed must be taken because it may cause severe complications related to inadvertent arterial embolization, including stroke and vision loss. Vision loss may originate from ophthalmic artery occlusion, and no therapeutic options have yet been reported for this condition. Herein, the authors report a case of ophthalmic artery occlusion following nasal autologous fat injection. Partial recovery of choroidal and retinal perfusion, ocular motility, and corneal clarity was achieved after intraarterial pharmacomechanical thrombolysis.
