PURPOSE: To evaluate the impact of preoperative central foveal thickness (CFT) on visual acuity after surgery in patients with idiopathic vitreomacular traction and to calculate a cut-off value in preoperative CFT. METHODS: Thirty-five patients with idiopathic vitreomacular traction were evaluated retrospectively. A complete ophthalmological examination including spectral domain optical coherence tomography was performed preoperatively and at 12 months after the surgery...

Vitreopapillary traction (VPT) is an unusual clinical entity and its management and prognosis have been sparsely studied. It has been described in adults with various vitreomacular pathologies and the possible effects on visual functions. However, the role of surgical intervention in altering the course of the disease is not well understood. Hereby, we describe a case of idiopathic VPT in a 16-year-old girl who presented with decreased vision and visual field changes corresponding to the area of retinal traction...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) and vitreoretinal interface in patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: This clinical trial included 206 eyes of 138 patients who presented to the authors' clinic between January 2012 and November 2014. Patients were divided into three groups: 98 eyes of 67 patients with exudative AMD, 55 eyes of 36 patients with nonexudative AMD, and 53 eyes of 35 patients having no vitreoretinal disease...

Purpose In vitreomacular traction (VMT), there is abnormal adhesion between the vitreous cortex and the retina, especially in the fovea. Symptoms of VMT include metamorphopsia and a decrease in visual acuity. Since 2013, ocriplasmin (Jetrea®) has been approved for treatment of symptomatic vitreomacular traction with or without macular holes (≤ 400 µm). Methods We retrospectively examined twenty-three eyes of twenty-one patients who underwent intravitreal ocriplasmin treatment for symptomatic vitreomacular traction with or without macular holes...

AIMS: To compare anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) treatment outcomes for macular oedema (ME) secondary to retinal vein occlusion (RVO) based on vitreoretinal interface (VRI) status. METHODS: This retrospective case series includes treatment-naive eyes diagnosed with RVO and treated with anti-VEGF injections. Eyes were stratified based on international VRI classification schema at baseline into three groups-vitreomacular traction (group A), no posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) (group B) and PVD without vitreomacular attachment (group C)...

We describe the temporal changes observed with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in the left eye of a 65-year-old man who developed a stage 1 macular hole secondary to vitreomacular traction (VMT). After 1 month, VMT had resolved spontaneously with a complete posterior vitreous detachment. Following VMT resolution, macular hole demonstrated progressive improvement and outer retinal disruption recovered spontaneously. This report highlights the importance of observation before any intervention for cases of stage 1 macular hole associated with VMT...

Intraoperative optical coherence tomography (iOCT) represents another milestone in ocular imaging technologies. Now, for the first time, high resolution OCT images are available not only pre- or postoperatively, but also intraoperatively. In recent years, there have been significant advances in iOCT technology - from hand-held probes and mounted systems towards iOCT systems which are fully integrated into the surgical microscope and which provide seamless integration into the workflow. These systems offer high-resolution, intraoperative OCT scans in real-time and provide additional information on microstructures of the retina or the cornea...

PURPOSE: To assess the effect of an intravitreal ocriplasmin injection on visual function, measured using visual acuity (VA) and vision-related quality of life. METHODS: Post hoc analysis of prespecified secondary end-points in two multicentre, randomized, double-masked, phase 3 clinical trials. A total of 652 participants with symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion were enrolled, of whom 464 received a single intravitreal injection of 125 μg ocriplasmin and 188 received a single intravitreal placebo injection...

Purpose. To compare the stages of vitreous degeneration in patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT) and macular holes (MH). Methods. A retrospective study was performed analyzing stages of vitreous degeneration of eyes with VMT or MH using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). An analogous review was performed on a control group of eyes with contralateral posterior vitreous detachments. Thirty-four eyes with VMT/MH and 39 control eyes were reviewed...

PURPOSE: To analyse the macula imaged with optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients treated for acute postcataract endophthalmitis. METHODS: Patients presenting with acute postcataract endophthalmitis were included in this observational and multicentre study from January 2008 to December 2011. We recorded the following OCT data at the 3, 6 and 12-month visits: the central macular thickness, the perifoveal macular thickness, the central foveal point thickness and abnormalities of the outer retina, the macula and vitreoretinal interface...

PURPOSE: Macular pathology, including macular holes (MHs), epiretinal membranes (ERMs), and macular edema, is a cause of irreversible vision loss in the setting of uveitis. Medical management involves corticosteroids, immunomodulatory medications, and biologics to control inflammation. Pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) has been suggested as a therapy for uveitis, with reports of reduced inflammation and decreased dependence on medication postoperatively. Currently, PPV is reserved for retinal detachments, vitreous opacities, and ERMs, causing vitreomacular traction...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome of perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas injection for symptomatic vitreomacular traction (VMT) with or without Stage 2 macular hole (MH). METHODS: A retrospective review of eyes with VMT treated with 0.3 mL of C3F8 gas was performed. Patients avoided the supine position until gas resolution. Patients with small MH maintained partial face-down positioning. RESULTS: Forty-nine consecutive patients (50 eyes) with symptomatic VMT underwent pneumatic vitreolysis between 2010 and 2016...

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...
