PURPOSE To report the long-term results of pars plana vitrectomy for diffuse nontractional diabetic macular edema. DESIGN Interventional, retrospective, consecutive case series. METHODS Clinical records of 332 consecutive patients (496 eyes) with diabetic macular edema without a thickened and taut posterior hyaloid on contact lens examination were(More)
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 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)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the factors that are correlated with the visual outcomes in patients who underwent pars plana vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane peeling for myopic foveoschisis (MF). METHODS In this retrospective, interventional consecutive case series, 39 eyes of 39 consecutive patients who had undergone pars(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 compare the long-term anatomic closure rate and visual outcome in patients who underwent internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling with and without indocyanine green (ICG) dye staining for idiopathic macular hole repair. DESIGN Retrospective, nonrandomized, comparative study of consecutive case series. METHODS A total of 190 eyes of 182(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 effectiveness of intravitreous bevacizumab (Avastin), intravitreous tissue plasminogen activator, and vitrectomy for the macular edema secondary to branch retinal vein occlusion. METHODS Retrospective, interventional case series. We studied 228 eyes of 228 patients. Forty-one eyes received 1.25 mg of intravitreous bevacizumab, 71(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)
