Idiopathic ERM and Metamorphopsia: A New Tool for Pre- and Post-operative Evaluation

SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2016_Idiopathic ERM and Metamorphopsia A New Tool for Pre- and Post-operative Evaluation Elisa Buschini Idiopathic epiretinal membrane (IERM) is defined as an avascular proliferation of different types of cells between the posterior vitreous cortex (PVC) and the internal limiting membrane (ILM). A premacular membrane can remain asymptomatic for much time or it can cause blurred vision. Furthermore, IERM can contract...

Evaluation of Retinal Layer Thickness According to Preoperative OCT Pattern After Idiopathic ERM

SCIENTIFIC POSTER_Hee Seong Yoon Purpose: To evaluate the changes in each retinal layer thickness according to preoperative optical coherence tomography(OCT) patterns after idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM) removal and to investigate the correlation between retinal layer thickness and visual improvement. Methods: The medical records of 63 patients (63 eyes) who underwent vitrectomy with ILM peeling for idiopathic ERM and followed for...

Comparative Evaluation of Vitrectomy Peeling with vs without Triamcinolone for Idiopathic ERM

Purpose: Compare anatomical and functional results of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with peeling of the internal limiting membrane (ILM) with and without per-operative intravitreal injection of triamcinolone for the treatment of idiopathic macular epiretinal membrane (IMEM). Setting: The intravitreal triamcinolone is used by some surgeons as a co-adjuvant to surgical treatment of idiopathic epiretinal membranes; however, to date little...

ERM with Unusual Foveolar Adhesion

Purpose: Epiretinal membranes (ERM) are collections of collagenous cells that occur on the inner surface of the central retina and can lead to visual changes because of their effect on the underlying retina. This ocular pathology was first described by Iwanoff in 1865, and it has been shown to be a relatively common entity, occurring in about 7% of the population. ERM occur more frequently in the older population and both sexes appear to...

Elevated Gliosis & Central Foveal Thickness as Prognosis Factors of PPV & ERM Peeling Outcomes

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Purpose: To assess the value of the central foveal thickness (CFT) and the area of the epiretinal membrane (ERM), which is not in contact with the retinal structure, as a prognostic factor for ERM surgery outcome Methods: Retrospective consecutive study including 50 eyes of 41 patients with the diagnosis of ERM. All eyes underwent pars...

Status of the Choroid Before and After Vitrectomy with ILM Peeling for Idiopathic ERM

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Advantages: The aim of this study is to evaluate the choroidal thickness and the outer choroidoscleral boundary before and after vitrectomy for idiopathic epiretinal membrane in one eye and in the unaffected fellow eye and in healthy volunteers. Methods: A prospective, cross-sectional study will be presented. Twenty-one patients with...
