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 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 examine the efficacy of vitreous surgery for macular edema in branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO). PATIENTS AND METHODS This study included 183 patients (183 eyes) that underwent vitreous surgery for macular edema in BRVO. They were 77 males and 106 females. The average age of the patients was 65 years (range, 35-87 years). The average(More)
