Use of Pneumatic Vitreolysis in Vitreomacular Traction

ABSTRACT Vitreomacular traction (VMT) is pathological persistent adherence of cortex vitreus in macula region due to incomplete posterior vitreous detachment. With tractional forces in fovea resulting in structural changes in neuroretina and eventually decreased visual acuity. VMT may sometimes resolve spontaneously. Untreated may lead to lamellar defects or even full thickness macular hole. Usually therapeutic intervention is required....

Outcome of ILM Pedicle Graft – A New Technique for Persistent Macular Holes

ABSTRACT Purpose: To evaluate the anatomical and visual outcomes of a novel technique, ILM pedicle graft in patients with failed standard macular hole surgery with ILM peel. To evaluate anatomical and functional outcome, and assess the feasibility of surgical technique. Methods: Patients with refractory macular holes (Previous pars plana vitrectomy, standard ILM macular-rhexis, C2F6 gas and face down positioning), were treated with this...

Optical Coherence Tomography Prevalence of Vitreoschisis in Eyes with Idiopathic Vitreomacular Traction

ABSTRACT Purpose: To describe the prevalence of vitreoschisis in eyes with idiopathic vitreomacular traction (VMT) and to correlate the presence of vitreoschisis with other structural alterations detected using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT). Methods: In this IRB-approved retrospective analysis, we collected data from 502 eyes with VMT from 307 patients with SD OCT imaging obtained. The presence of vitreoschisis and...

Modified Technique of Epiretinal Membrane and ILM Staining

ABSTRACT Purpose: To report on the combined use of trypan blue (TB) and brilliant blue G (BBG) for staining the epiretinal membrane (ERM) and internal limiting membrane (ILM) by injecting the dye at the retina–perfluoro-n-octane interface. Using a dye squeezer. Methods: This technique was used in 42 eyes with macular epiretinal membranes during vitrectomy using a commercially available combination of TB and BBG for ERM and ILM staining...

Surgical Management of Macular Hole Caused by Removal of Retained Submacular Perfluorocarbon Liquid

ABSTRACT In this case report, succesful management of macular hole caused by the removal of retained subretinal perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) after pars plana vitrectomy for pseudophakic retinal detachment is described. One patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy followed by silicone injection with PFCL injection for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. A retained subfoveal PFCL bubble was noticed postoperatively by funduscopy and optical...

Automated OCT-segmentation of All Layers of the Parafoveal Retina to Analyze the Changes After ERM-and ILM-peeling for Epiretinal Membranes

ABSTRACT Purpose: To analyze the changes in macular architecture after ERM (epiretinal membrane) and ILM (inner limiting membrane) peeling using the automated layer segmentation of the Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering) and to correlate the findings with the visual improvement after surgery. Methods: Retrospectively, the SD-OCT- data of 30 eyes that underwent pars plana surgery with ERM and ILM peeling were segmented and analyzed:...
