[Morphologic analysis of epiretinal membranes in surgically treated idiopathic macular foramina. Results of light and electron microscopy].


Anteroposterior and tangential traction on the central retina is an important factor in the pathogenesis of idiopathic macular hole formation. Histological studies have shown that macular holes of different stages can be associated with epiretinal membranes. Such membranes can be removed during surgery for macular holes. We investigated such tissue samples… (More)
