Swelling and Dimpling of Inner Retinal Layer After Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling: Multimodal Assessment

Purpose: To investigate the inner retinal layer outcome after internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in idiopathic epiretinal macular membrane (ERM) with new Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT). Design: Prospective, randomized, comparative case series Participants: Thirty-four eyes with ERM underwent pars plana vitrectomy with (n= 19) or without (n= 15) ILM peeling associated. Methods: Vitrectomy and ERM removal were...

Evolving Concepts in Pharmacologic Vitreolysis

Brooks W. McCuen, II, MD (Durham, NC) The attachment of the cortical vitreous to the inner limiting lamina of the retinal surface plays an important role in the pathophysiology of many vitreoretinal diseases, such as idiopathic macular hole, vitreomacular traction syndrome, penetrating ocular trauma and proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Despite continued improvement in techniques and instrumentation, achieving an atraumatic cleavage of...
