PURPOSE: To report a case that showed centripetal movements of the capillaries in the central macular region after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling. METHODS: A 57-year-old pseudophakic woman underwent successful vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling and air tamponade for a vitreomacular traction. Optical coherence tomography angiographic images of the 3 mm × 3 mm inner retinal vascular plexus were examined preoperatively and at 3 months postoperatively...

PURPOSE: To evaluate a new method for volumetric imaging of the preretinal space (also known as the subhyaloid, subcortical, or retrocortical space) and investigate differences in preretinal space volume in vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) and vitreomacular traction (VMT). METHODS: Nine patients with VMA and 13 with VMT were prospectively evaluated. Automatic inner limiting membrane line segmentation, which exploits graph search theory implementation, and posterior cortical vitreous line segmentation were performed on 141 horizontal spectral domain optical coherence tomography B-scans per patient...

PURPOSE: To determine whether improvements in microperimetry testing are associated with anatomic resolution after ocriplasmin treatment in patients with symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMA)/vitreomacular traction and relatively preserved baseline best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). METHODS: Patients with vitreomacular traction received a single 125-μg intravitreal ocriplasmin injection and were followed longitudinally for 6 months with optical coherence tomography, BCVA testing, and microperimetry...

PURPOSE: To identify favorable ocriplasmin candidates from a cohort of idiopathic full thickness macular hole surgery patients. METHODS: The records of patients with full thickness macular hole who underwent pars plana vitrectomy surgery between 2011 and 2015 were reviewed. Clinical data collected included patient demographics, pre- and post-operative Snellen visual acuity, optical coherence tomography findings, and lens status. The authors defined "favorable" ocriplasmin candidates as patients with focal vitreomacular traction, no epiretinal membrane, and hole size ≤400 μm...

PURPOSE: To identify the prognostic factors affecting the surgical outcomes in patients with vitreomacular traction syndrome undergoing pars plana vitrectomy. METHODS: This was a retrospective clinical study of 67 eyes of 67 patients with vitreomacular traction syndrome who underwent pars plana vitrectomy. Demographic, clinical, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) characteristics were collected and analyzed. Univariate and multivariate linear regression analysis were used to examine the effect of parameters on change in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA)...

PURPOSE: To study the relationship between the size of primary full-thickness macular hole (MH) and the vitreomacular attachment status. DESIGN: Single-centre retrospective observational case series. METHODS: The records of 100 consecutive eyes operated for primary full-thickness MH were retrospectively reviewed. The vitreous status and MH diameter were assessed on the preoperative optical coherence tomography scans. MH were classified depending on the presence or absence of vitreomacular traction (VMT) and their size as small (<250 µm), medium (250-400 µm) and large (>400 µm), as suggested in the International VMT Study Group Classification...

To report a case of retinal vasoproliferative tumor (VPT) with secondary epiretinal membrane (ERM) formation and vitreo-macular traction managed by pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and membrane peel. A 29-year-old male was referred for management of decreased vision in the right eye (OD) for 1 week. Presenting visual acuity was 20/50 Snellen feet (ft) OD, and fundus examination showed an ERM associated with a reddish-yellow mass in the inferotemporal quadrant with overlying exudation, hemorrhage, and subretinal fluid consistent with VPT, and cryotherapy was recommended...

PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between retinal structure and retinal sensitivity comparing data obtained using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and microperimetry in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) and healthy patients. METHODS: A total of 49 patients (98 eyes) with RP were divided into 4 groups according to the OCT findings: group A, patients with no macular changes; group B, patients with cystoid macular edema (CME); group C, patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT); group D, patients with retinal thinning...

AIM: Posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) is a physiological phenomenon due to aging characterized by separation of the vitreous cortex from the retina and may induce a variety of pathological events at the vitreoretinal junction. The aim of this study is to highlight in vivo anatomical and functional changes in early stages of PVD allowing the correct treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Non-consecutive case series; optical coherence tomography (OCT) relies on analyzing the reflectivity of coherent light from different anatomical interfaces within posterior vitreous and retinal histological layers, thus acquiring transverse sections through vitreoretinal interface, sensory retina, retinal pigment epithelium and choroid...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of the vitreoretinal interface architecture, in specific the angle between the posterior vitreous cortex and the internal limiting membrane, on vitreomacular traction (VMT) resolution in eyes treated with intravitreally injected ocriplasmin (Jetrea). METHODS: Retrospective, multicenter cohort study and exploratory data analysis. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography assessments were performed before scheduled ocriplasmin injections...

Vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) describes the adhesion of the posterior hyaloid face to the inner retina in any part of the macula. This can arise after incomplete separation of the posterior vitreous cortex from the macula during vitreous liquefaction. While the VMA may resolve spontaneously, a strong and persistent adhesion can lead to a variety of anatomical changes, including vitreomacular traction (VMT) and macular hole (MH). Both conditions can present with metamorphopsia and decreased vision. In cases of symptomatic VMT and full-thickness macular hole, pars plana vitrectomy has long been the standard of care...

PURPOSE: To elucidate the current clinical practice patterns of diabetic macular edema (DME) management by retinal specialists in Japan in the era of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) therapy. METHODS: Forty-six retinal specialists were administered a survey regarding the pathology and clinical practice of DME. RESULTS: Nearly, half of the specialists (45.2 %) think that the main biochemical factor involved in DME development is the vascular permeability-potentiating action of VEGF-A...

We report the case of a 69-year-old patient who underwent vitrectomy for vitreomacular traction (VMT) and developed a postoperative macular hole that was observed 1 week after surgery. The hole did not close by in-office fluid-gas exchange alone, but was achieved after repeat surgery with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling. Intraoperative OCT (iOCT) images from the first surgery revealed an occult macular hole that formed after VMT release. We discuss how iOCT findings provide insight into the role of the ILM in macular hole formation and emphasize the importance of carefully inspecting iOCT images in real time to avoid missing small but important findings...

BACKGROUND: To present an intraoperative acute Descemet's fold formation using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) imaging. CASE REPORT: A 67-year-old man complaining of reduced visual acuity in the left eye. A 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy combined with phacoemulsification cataract surgery was performed to remove the vitreomacular traction. When hydro-sealing was performed, striae rapidly spread in the cornea. SS-OCT B-scan images performed on postoperative day 1 revealed a wavy Descemet's membrane that might correspond to Descemet's folds...

PURPOSE: To assess the posterior vitreous release rates following a single, office-based intravitreal injection of expansile gas in treating vitreomacular traction. METHODS: Thirty eyes of 29 consecutive patients with symptomatic vitreomacular traction received a single, office-based intravitreal injection of up to 0.3 mL of 100% perfluoropropane (C3F8). RESULTS: Overall, vitreomacular traction release occurred in 25 of 30 eyes by the final follow-up visit (83% final release rate); furthermore, 90% (9 of 10 eyes) with diabetes mellitus released, 83% (5 of 6 eyes) with concurrent epiretinal membrane released, and 83% (5 of 6 eyes) previously treated with ocriplasmin released...
