The author initiated the ILM Peeling as a treatment of BRVO and CRVO in February 2000 and is continuing this technique due to the quality of the results:

  • 4,15 LogMAR lines of average improvement
  • 69% of patients improved their visual acuity
  • Only 6,4% of patients had a decreased visual acuity
  • Reduction of the edema (by OCT measurement) of 200 ยต

We will present, this year, the results after long-term follow-up (more than 5 years) in order to demonstrate that the surgery indices a permanent neurotrophic action which persists after a long-term follow-up.
