· Background: The role of tangential traction exerted by epiretinal membranes in the pathogenesis of macular holes is not fully understood. Furthermore, the role of glial cells in the formation and/or closure of macular holes remains to be elucidated. · Methods: To better understand the pathogenesis of macular hole formation and to compare the ultrastructural features of epiretinal membranes associated with macular holes of primary and secondary etiology, we harvested 23 translucent epiretinal… CONTINUE READING
