PURPOSE: To study the efficacy of a single intravitreal injection of air as a valuable alternative to current treatment options (conservative, pharmacological, and surgical) in patients with symptomatic, focal vitreomacular traction. METHODS: Interventional, nonrandomized clinical study including a consecutive series of patients who underwent a single injection of 0.3 mL of air for vitreomacular traction. Each patient underwent best-corrected visual acuity, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography before and after the procedure...

PURPOSE: To investigate the characteristics in spontaneous release of epiretinal membrane (ERM) during watchful waiting and to introduce a possible mechanism of pathogenesis as a photo essay. METHODS: Records from all patients with ERM were obtained from Osaka Medical College Hospital from January 2001 to October 2012. Visual acuity (VA), fundus photo, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) were reviewed using the medical records. For statistical analysis, VA measured with a Landolt chart was converted to the logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution (logMAR)...

PURPOSE: To investigate the impact of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) morphological predictive markers on visual acuity and outcome using ocriplasmin for macular hole and vitreomacular traction syndrome. METHODS: A series of 40 patients in a retrospective study received intravitreal ocriplasmin. The primary endpoint was defined as morphological resolution of vitreomacular traction or closure of a macular hole. We analyzed the impact of pre- and postinjection SD-OCT findings on the outcome and visual acuity...

PURPOSE: To compare the refractive accuracy of intraocular lens (IOL) power calculations between patients with vitreomacular interface disorders who had phacovitrectomy for vitreomacular traction (VMT), epiretinal membranes (ERM), and macular holes. SETTING: Baskent University Department of Ophthalmology, Ankara, Turkey. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. METHODS: Refraction results 8 weeks postoperatively were compared between phacovitrectomy (3 study groups comprising eyes with VMT with intrafoveal pseudocysts, ERM, or medium-to-large macular holes) and phacoemulsification (control group comprising eyes having phacoemulsification only)...

Case report of a 70-year-old male who developed full thickness macular hole (MH) following vitrectomy for vitreomacular traction syndrome. The further intervention was deferred due to the unwillingness of the patient for the second surgery. Periodic follow up of the patient, revealed improvement in visual acuity with the closure of the MH after 28 months.

Symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (sVMA) is defined as visual loss secondary to foveal damage from vitreomacular traction (VMT) and includes isolated VMT, impending macular hole (MH), and full-thickness MH with persisting vitreous attachment. Management options include pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), intravitreal ocriplasmin, intravitreal gas injection or observation. This synthesis of the literature aimed to assess the safety and efficacy of intravitreal gas for sVMA. Articles describing patients with VMT or MH treated with intravitreal expansile gas were selected by systematic literature review using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Database of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) up to September 2016...

PURPOSE: To compare the foveal characteristics in fellow eyes (FE) of patients with unilateral idiopathic macular hole without vitreomacular pathologic changes with eyes of healthy controls. METHODS: Forty-seven FE and 52 eyes of 52 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were studied. Quantitative assessment of the dome-shaped appearance of the hyperreflective lines that represent external limiting membrane (ELM_bulge) and inner outer segment junctions (IS/OS_bulge) were made by optical coherence tomography (OCT) images...

Vitreoretinal interface pathologies, such as vitreomacular traction syndrome, epiretinal membranes and macular holes are sight-threatening conditions and one of the important causes of vision defects and vision loss. To this date, vigilance with observation of how the vitreomacular traction resolves, or vitreoretinal surgery in more severe cases, were the only treatment options. Recent rapid progress in ophthalmology, especially in diagnostic and visualization techniques, provided better insight into the mechanisms taking place on the vitreoretinal surface, which enabled a more accurate selection of treatment options...

PURPOSE: To introduce a human cell culture technique for investigating in-vitro behavior of primary epiretinal cells and membrane contraction of fibrocellular tissue surgically removed from eyes with idiopathic macular pucker. METHODS: Human epiretinal membranes were harvested from ten eyes with idiopathic macular pucker during standard vitrectomy. Specimens were fixed on cell culture plastic using small entomological pins to apply horizontal stress to the tissue, and then transferred to standard cell culture conditions...

PURPOSE: To assess treatment effects following intravitreal injection of ocriplasmin for vitreomacular traction (VMT), with or without full-thickness macular hole (FTMH), in real-life setting. METHODS: This is a monocentric, retrospective, consecutive series of 82 eyes from 82 patients who underwent ocriplasmin treatment between July 2013 and December 2016. We included 57 eyes with pure VMT, 17 eyes with small FTMHs, and eight eyes with medium FTMHs. Primary outcome measures were VMT release and MH closure rates...

PurposeTo compare the structural changes, clinical course, and treatment outcomes of vertical and horizontal vitreomacular traction (VMT) induced impending macular holes (IMHs) and full-thickness macular holes (FTMHs).MethodsIn this retrospective study, 23 and 32 cases of IMHs and FTMHs, respectively, were analyzed. The IMH cases were divided into two subgroups: IMH with and without foveal detachment. Vitreofoveal traction angles (TAs) between the inner retinal surface and posterior hyaloid were measured from horizontal and vertical optical coherence tomography (OCT) images by using the trigonometric function (the angle equals the arctangent of the height over the base) after adjustments for magnification factors...

PURPOSE: To assess the long-term functional and anatomical outcomes for vitreomacular traction syndrome (VMT) after vitrectomy and to analyze the predictive factors regarding visual outcome. METHODS: A retrospective, consecutive case series of 22 eyes in 22 patients with VMT who underwent vitrectomy to relieve macular edema were studied. Eyes were classified into two groups according to the diameter of vitreomacular adhesion based on spectral domain optical coherence tomography: Group 1 (14 eyes) focal attachment ≤1,500 μm; and Group 2 (eight eyes) broad attachment >1,500 μm...

Pharmacological vitreolysis with ocriplasmin is an effective treatment option for eyes with vitreomacular traction. Pre-marketing and post-marketing clinical studies revealed an improvement of visual function in ocriplasmin treated eyes and showed a release of traction in up to 78% of cases. Treatment success is related to patient selection based on positive predictive factors. Adverse events, such as visual acuity loss, dyschromatopsia or photopsia are known to be self-limited in the majority of eyes. Structural outer retinal layer changes, such as ellipsoid zone disturbances or subretinal fluid accumulation on SD-OCT analysis, as well as ERG abnormalities, are transient and correlated to VMT release...
