Correlation of Normal Choroidal Thickness and Volume Measurements with Axial Length and Age Using Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography and Optical Low Coherence Reflectometry

Advantages: To report normal choroidal thickness and volume measurement in healthy eyes using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Additionally to correlate the results with axial length, age and refractive error. Methods: Prospective observational study of 122 healthy eyes. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination. Imaging was performed with SS-OCT. Choroidal thickness and volume measurements were...

Lamina Suprachoroidea & Suprachoroidal Space Delineating the Outer Margin of the Choroid in Swept-Source OCT

Advantages: To define the morphology of outer choroidal margins in swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). Methods: This is a prospective observational study of 180 eyes: 20 eyes of healthy volunteers, 20 eyes of myopic patients and 20 eyes from each of the following groups: macular hole (before and after surgery), lamellar macular hole, epiretinal membranes, drusen, dry age related macular degeneration, neovascular age...

Does Vitreous Surgery for Diabetes Complications Have an Influence on the Course of Macular Edema in Long-term Follow-up?

Advantages: To evaluate the influence of vitreous surgery performed for vitreous hemorrhage and traction retinal detachment (macular edema excluded) as a complication of diabetic retinopathy with or without ILM peeling on macular edema formation. Additionally to evaluate long-term spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) follow- up of macular structure. Methods: 101 eyes of patients, who had undergone vitrectomy were...

Comparative Study of Vitrectomy with ILM Peeling vs Anti-VEGF in DME

Advantages: To compare anatomic and functional results of vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and anti- VEGF (Avastin) injection for the course of diabetic macular edema. Methods: Comparative non- randomized study of 68 eyes, of patients with diabetic macular edema. 50 eyes were treated with repeated injections of anti- VEGF (Avastin), 18 eyes had undergone vitrectomy with ILM peeling. Pre- and best-achieved...

Treatment of Optic Pit Maculopathy with Vitrectomy and Arcuate ILM Peeling

Advantages: To present the results of vitrectomy, laser and arcuate ILM peeling at the temporal margin of the optic nerve and air tamponade. Methods: 9 patients with symptopatic maculopathy associated with optic disc pit were treated between 2008 and 2011. Surgical technique consisted of central vitrectomy, posterior hyaloid detachment, laser treatment at the temporal margin of the optic disc and ILM peeling at the temporal margin of...

Natural Course of Disc Pit

Advantages: Our purpose was to study the clinical course of optic pit maculopathy using spectral optical coherence tomography (OCT) images, and to discuss possible ways of fluid entrance into the subretinal space. Methods: 11 eyes with a macular detachment in combination with an optic pit were examined using spectral OCT, with axial resolution 3-6µm. In selected cases, fluorescein angiography and scanning laser ophthalmoscopy were...

Natural Course and Surgical Treatment of Vitreomacular Traction Syndrome

Advantages: To present the natural course vs. vitrectomy for macular oedema in vitreomacular traction syndrome. Methods: 52 patients with vitreomacular traction syndrome were examined with mean follow- up of 12 months. Patients had complete ophthalmic examination and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD- OCT) on a regular course. Effectiveness / Safety: 15 eyes had vitrectomy performed and 13 had spontaneous resolution of...

Is Scleral Buckling Really the Less Traumatic Surgery – A Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography Study

Zofia Michalewska*, Janusz Michalewski, Dominik Odrobina, Slawomir Cisiecki, Maciej Bednarski, Jerzy Nawrocki (Lodz, Poland) Advantages: Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography presents retinal architecture after scleral buckling and explains why visual acuity does not always fully recover after surgery. Methods: This is a single centre, prospective analysis of 132 consecutive eyes after scleral buckling, which were evaluated with...

ILM Peeling as a Prophylaxis of Macular Pucker in PVR Retinal Detachment Treatment – Retinectomy with ILM Peeling vs Without ILM Peeling

Dominik Odrobina, Maciej Bednarski, Slawomir Cisiecki, Zofia Michalewska, Jerzy Nawrocki (Lodz, Poland) Advantages: To analyze the effect of internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling on the anatomical and functional outcomes in patients undergoing retinectomy of 180 degrees to 360 degrees for retinal detachment with Grade D-1 PVR, paying particular role to development of macular pucker. Methods: Consecutive and prospective series of 84...

Retinal Changes After Vitrectomy – A Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Study

Michalewska Zofia*, Cisiecki Slawomir, Michalewski Janusz, Odrobina Dominik, Bednarski Maciej, Nawrocki Jerzy (Lodz, Poland) Premise: Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) may demonstrate in the retinal architecture after primary pars plana vitrectomy an explanation as to why visual acuity may not recover fully after surgery. Methods: This is a single center, prospective analysis of 121 consecutive eyes following primary...
