PURPOSE To compare surgical results for idiopathic macular holes with and without internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in a series of consecutive patients during an 8-year period. METHODS A retrospective, nonrandomized, comparative trial. Four hundred seventeen eyes with macular holes without ILM peeling were compared with 175 eyes with ILM peeling.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in vitreous surgery for diabetic macular edema. METHODS This study was done on 135 eyes of 103 patients who all underwent diabetic macular edema surgery under the same surgeon. The subjects were 74 eyes of 55 males and 61 eyes of 48 females, aged 35-81 years, with an average of 62(More)
PURPOSE To determine the incidence and the factors that can cause a reopening of a macular hole (MH) after a surgical closure. DESIGN Retrospective, comparative, consecutive case series. METHODS The medical charts of all patients who underwent vitrectomy with or without internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling for an idiopathic full-thickness MH were(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term effect of vitrectomy with or without arteriovenous sheathotomy for macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS The study was a prospective, randomized, comparative, interventional case series of 36 patients (36 eyes) who underwent pars plana vitrectomy with or without arteriovenous sheathotomy(More)
PURPOSE To report the long-term surgical outcome of vitrectomy for cystoid macular edema due to nonischemic central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS A retrospective chart review of 25 consecutive eyes (25 patients) with cystoid macular edema due to nonischemic CRVO treated with vitrectomy was performed. All patients underwent a pars plana vitrectomy(More)
PURPOSE To determine the changes of regional macular thickness after successful macular hole surgery (MHS) with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling during a 24-month follow-up period. METHODS In a prospective, interventional case study, the authors evaluated 24 eyes of 24 patients who underwent 23-gauge transconjunctival pars plana vitrectomy with(More)
PURPOSE To compare the vitreoretinal interface of the asymptomatic fellow eyes of patients with unilateral macular holes (MHs) with that of the asymptomatic fellow eyes of patients with other retinal diseases and with that of healthy eyes. DESIGN Retrospective, observational cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS This study included 137 healthy volunteers(More)
PURPOSE To show a case in which the shape of the fovea changed after an asymptomatic macular posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). METHODS The foveal shape was determined from the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) images before and after a spontaneous macular PVD. RESULTS A 66-year-old man with a unilateral macular hole in the right eye(More)
PURPOSE To determine the long-term visual outcomes after vitreous surgery for macular edema with foveal hemorrhage associated with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). METHODS One hundred twenty eyes of 120 patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy with or without internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling for macular edema with foveal hemorrhage due to(More)
