What Happens to the Macula Following ERM Surgery: OCT and Visual Changes

Purpose: To understand the postoperative behaviour of the macula after ERM surgery. Methods: Retrospective analysis of functional (visual) and anatomical (OCT) changes of cases with epimacular membrane following surgery was performed in long term. Anatomical changes for each individual case were followed with OCT. The percentage of cases getting normal foveal configuration and time needed for recovery were determined. The effect of...

En-face OCT Analysis of the Retinal Surface Changes After ILM Peeling for ERM

Purpose: To describe the progressive morphological changes of the retinal surface after internal limiting membrane peeling (ILM) for epiretinal membrane (ERM) surgery visualized with en face optical coherence tomography of the retinal surface. (en face OCT-ret surf) Methods: Preoperative and postoperative en face OCT images of the inner face of the macula were obtained from 20 eyes of 20 patients undergoing vitrectomy with ILM peeling...

Long-term Spectral Domain OCT After Surgery for ERM

Purpose: To describe retinal morphology before and after surgery for epiretinal membranes. Additionally to evaluate factors responsible for the final visual outcome. Material and Methods: A retrospective study of 126 eyes followed with SD- OCT for a period of 18 months. Pars plana vitrectomy with trypan blue staining was performed in all eyes. Results: Increased preoperative central and maximum retinal thickness (p=0.04) and IS/ OS...

Incidence of Cystoid Maclar Edema After Vitrectomy for ERM

Advantage: While the literature on ME following cataract surgery is rich, few papers have been published on the incidence of this complication after vitrectomy. In our study, we aimed to evaluate the incidence of cystoid macular edema (CME) after vitrectomy in a homogeneous series of eyes that underwent epiretinal membrane (ERM) peeling. Possible risk factors and treatment were considered. Methods: Ninety eyes of 89 patients underwent...

The Importance of Gas Injection in Idiopathic ERM Peeling Recovery

Advantages: Inner limiting membrane (ILM) removal has become a standard procedure in idiopathic epiretinal membrane (iERM) peeling over the last 15 years but some entities still respond poorly to surgery, like pseudo-lamellar holes, either in their final visual acuity or metamorphopsia reports. Herein, we propose to investigate the importance of gas injection as a tamponade in every instance of iERM peeling and examine the effect on...
