This study compared the postoperative outcomes of 27-gauge (G) and 25-G vitrectomy performed for the treatment of idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM). The study design was single center, retrospective, interventional case series. Two hundred consecutive eyes that underwent primary vitrectomy for ERM (27-G vitrectomy in 100 eyes and 25-G vitrectomy in 100 eyes) were studied for 6 months. In all eyes, scleral tunnels were made using angle incisions, and air or gas exchange was performed. There were no significant differences in age, spherical diopter power, as well as preoperative Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) score, central retinal thickness (CRT), and intraocular pressure between the 27-G and 25-G groups. The proportions of simultaneous cataract surgery (27-G vs. 25-G: 82% vs. 90%), air-filled eyes (99% vs. 98%), and scleral wound suture at the end of surgery (0% vs. 0%) were not significantly different between two groups. The mean operation time for vitrectomy was significantly (P
Surgery for Epiretinal membrane removal speeds up the onset of cataract, which is a very treatable cause of worsening vision. Sometimes, an early cataract is removed at the same time as the membrane removal to spare the patient from cataract surgery in the near future. Epiretinal membrane removal carries the risk of 1 in 50 cases of ending up with significantly worse vision and 1 in 50 of requiring further surgery to deal with recurrent Epiretinal membrane or other complications of surgery such as retinal detachment. The risk of serious complications of Epiretinal membrane removal is about 1 in 1000 cases, where the eye becomes totally blind due to a bleed during surgery or an infection after surgery. Some patients may develop persistently high eye pressure, which can damage the nerve of the eye causing vision loss. This condition is called Glaucoma and can affect 1:100 patients following this type of surgery. It may require long term use of eye drops and sometimes glaucoma surgery in order to ...

Epiretinal membrane (ERM) may cause decreased central vision or metamorphopsia. Pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling has become the standard treatment for epiretinal membrane. However, visual recovery or symptomatic relief is not always satisfactory in all eyes despite successful membrane removal. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is a non-invasive imaging device for various vitreoretinal diseases. Cone outer segment tips (COST) line is a line observed between IS/OS line and RPE in SD-OCT. The investigators examined the correlation of visual acuity and the recovery of photoreceptor layer after ERM surgery, taking COST line into account as a new ...
PURPOSE To report outcomes and prognostic factors after epiretinal membrane peeling in patients with previous rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair. METHODS A consecutive case series. Best-corrected visual acuity and optical coherence tomography characteristics were analyzed before and after epiretinal membrane surgery. RESULTS Fifty-three eyes were analyzed. Best-corrected visual acuity improved by a mean of 10 letters at 1 month (N = 45; P = 0.001), 15 at 3 months (N = 42; P | 0.001), 11 at 6 months (N = 35; P = 0.001), and 16 at 12 months (N = 33; P | 0.001). The mean optical coherence tomography central foveal thickness decreased by 141 (N = 22; P | 0.001), 185 (N = 24; P | 0.001), 180 (N = 17; P = 0.001), and 151 μm (N = 9; P = 0.017) at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months, respectively. Better preoperative best-corrected visual acuity correlated with better best-corrected visual acuity at all follow-up visits (P ≤ 0.001).

AAn epiretinal membrane (ERM) or macular pucker is an abnormal wrinkling of the retina at the macula. The macula is the central portion of the retina responsible for producing sharp focus and clear central vision. Scar tissue can grow on the surface of the retina; directly over the macula and as this scar tissue contracts it causes the retina to wrinkle.. An epiretinal membrane is typically slow-progressing. Straight lines on picture frames and doorways can often appear wavy. These distortions and blurry vision can affect people in their everyday tasks such as reading or watching TV.. Visual symptoms of epiretinal membranes tend to be worse to start with and then generally settle down and stabilize. This often means that the vision does not deteriorate once they have been present for a year or so. However, in other people the vision may deteriorate as the distorted macula slowly loses the ability to function as well.. ...
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging plays an essential role in the diagnosis and treatment of macular diseases, including those of the vitreomacular interface. OCT enables accurate diagnosis and differentiation of full thickness macular hole, lamellar macular hole and epiretinal membrane, with or without the presence of vitreomacular adhesion. This information enables earlier diagnosis and treatment when necessary, and can guide the choice of therapy. OCT is useful to facilitate discussions with patients and manage the visual expectations. Postoperatively, OCT can be helpful to optimise patient comfort and visual outcomes. As the technology continues to improve, OCT will become increasingly critical for all aspects of care for patients with macular hole and epiretinal membrane.. ...
Purpose: : To examine the preoperative anatomical features of the macula using Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with epiretinal membranes (ERM) who underwent pars plana vitrectomy for ERM removal, and to correlate these features with anatomic and visual outcomes. Methods: : The study was a retrospective, single center, noncomparative, interventional case series. Thirty nine eyes of 39 patients with ERM who met inclusion/exclusion criteria underwent vitrectomy and epiretinal membrane removal between January 2005 and November 2007. Patients were evaluated clinically and by OCT preoperatively and at 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and their most recent clinic visit. Inclusion criteria included availability of pre- and post-operative OCT imaging, and clinical follow-up of 3 or more months. Exclusion criteria included OCT diagnoses of vitreomacular traction, lamellar hole, or macular hole. OCT appearances were classified as focal, broad-patchy, or global adherence of ERM, and ...

An epiretinal membrane (or Macular Pucker ) is scar tissue that has formed on the eyes macula, located in the center of the retina. The result is blurred and distorted central vision. Sometimes the symptoms are mild, and sometimes they are bothersome or interfere with a patient s activities.. Most epiretinal membranes are due to aging changes within the eye. Diabetes, trauma, prior surgery, and inflammation are other risk factors.. ...

Epiretinal membrane is a disease of the eye in response to changes in the vitreous humor or more rarely, diabetes. It is also called macular pucker.. Sometimes, as a result of immune system response to protect the retina, cells converge in the macular area as the vitreous ages and pulls away in posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). PVD can create minor damage to the retina, stimulating exudate, inflammation, and leucocyte response. These cells can form a transparent layer gradually and, like all scar tissue, tighten to create tension on the retina which may bulge and pucker (e.g. macular pucker), or even cause swelling or macular edema. Often this results in distortions of vision that are clearly visible as bowing when looking at lines on chart paper (or an Amsler grid) within the macular area, or central 1.0 degree of visual arc. Confirmation of the problem, as well as the display of its size, is done using the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).. Usually it occurs in one eye first, and may ...
Epiretinal fibrosis is a disease of the macula, which affects the central retina, and there by the central vision. Epiretinal fibrosis is due to a growth of connective tissue on retinas surface.. From population studies shows that 15% of patients with epiretinal fibrosis will develop moderate to severe loss of visual acuity. Earlier studies have shown that surgery to remove the epiretinal membrane most often leads to improvements in visual acuity if not a normalization of this. The reason why not everyone has normalization of their visual acuity could be growth of connective in the deeper layers of the retina. This intraretinal fibrosis develops over time and is presumed to worsen with the duration of the condition.. In a patient with symptomatic epiretinal fibrosis and visual acuity over 0,4, the current clinical practice is to utilize the wait and see approach, where you hold of treatment until you have made sure that the patients visual acuity is declining. With the wait and see approach you ...

Two examiners evaluated macular 5-line raster horizontal SD-OCT images and categorized the patients on the basis of presence (group I) or absence (group II) of DONFL. The average macular NFL areas in both groups were measured using ImageJ at baseline and 1, 3, and 6 months after surgery.. ...
Purpose: To determine the vitreous and aqueous concentrations of brimonidine after topical application of the ophthalmic solution 0.1%.. Methods: The prospective observational case series included patients with an idiopathic epiretinal membrane or macular hole who were scheduled for a pars plana vitrectomy. Brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution 0.1% was topically administered twice daily for 1 week preoperatively. Vitreous and aqueous humor were collected before vitrectomy, then, the brimonidine concentration was measured with liquid chromatography tandem spectrometry (LC/MS/MS).. Results: Twenty-four patients (19 phakic eyes and 5 pseudophakic eyes) were enrolled. The mean concentrations in the aqueous humor and vitreous were 336.0 ± 276.2 nM and 4.8 ± 3.2 nM, respectively. A significant relationship was observed between the vitreous and aqueous samples (P = 0.034, R2 = 0.22). Nineteen (79%) of the 24 eyes showed the more than 2 nM of brimonidine tartate concentration in the vitreous. In ...
Mapping diurnal variations in choroidal sublayer perfusion in patients with idiopathic epiretinal membrane: an optical coherence tomography angiography study: B
The surgery is performed through three 25-gauge ports (about the width of a wire paper clip). The surgery begins by placing an infusion canula, a light pipe & a vitrectomy cutter through each of the 3 ports. The infusion cannula keeps a constant pressure in the eye while the vitrectomy cutter removes the vitreous gel. As the gel is removed, balance salt solution replaces the gel in the vitreous cavity. If the gel is adherent to the retina, it is gently lifted off the optic nerve and macula to separate the vitreomacular adhesions. The light pipe is used by the surgeon to see the vitreous being removed inside the eye. The surgeon will then stain the ERM and ILM with indocyanine green dye (ICG) and peel the ERM and ILM (in some cases). After the ERM (and ILM) are removed the surgeon removes the surgical instruments and trocars (3 ports) and the operation is complete. No sutures are typically needed in up to 95% of cases. Antibiotic ointment and a patch are placed over the eye for one night and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - IL-10 and antibodies to TGF-β2 and PDGF inhibit RPE-mediated retinal contraction. AU - Carrington, Louise. AU - McLeod, David. AU - Boulton, Mike. PY - 2000/4/15. Y1 - 2000/4/15. N2 - PURPOSE. Retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells are believed to play a pivotal role in the formation and contraction of epiretinal membranes in proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). In the present study, an organ culture method was used that mimics the contractile stage of PVR, to investigate the contribution of a variety of growth factors in human RPE cell-mediated contraction of the retina. METHODS. Cultured human RPE cells were seeded onto bovine retinal explants. After attachment, cultures received one of the following exogenous growth factors: platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-AB, PDGF-BB, basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1, TGF-β2, or interleukin (IL)-10; or a neutralizing antibody to PDGF and/or TGF-β2. Control explants were either untreated or ...
Researchers in France have determined that SD-OCT examinations for epiretinal membranes (ERM) are feasible in an elderly population. Their study determined that the modality was more sensitive in ERM detection than standard 45° retinal color photographs, especially when detecting them in the early stages.. Out of 624 participants who were at least 75 years old and underwent both fundus imaging and SD‐OCT examinations, 610 (97.8%) subjects had gradable SD‐OCT examinations and 511 (81.9%) had gradable fundus images in at least one eye. Based on the fundus photographs, 11.6% of participants had definite ERMs. However, the SD‐OCT images revealed that 52.8% of the subjects had early ERMs (stage 1), 7.4% had mature ERMs without foveal involvement (stage 2) and 9.7% had mature ERMs with foveal alterations (stage 3).. Regardless of the imaging method used, the researchers discovered ERMs more often in pseudophakic eyes than in phakic eyes. While the speci﫿city of the retinal images was good ...

An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) was ordered, and an ERM was noted in the patients left eye; she was then instructed to return in six months.. Read Full Article. ...
Epiretinal membrane (ERM) is a fibrocellular tissue proliferation on the inner limiting membrane (ILM) leading to various changes in the retinal architecture. In this study, Sakimoto et al. reported that ERM can be a potential risk factor for unilateral severity in eyes with POAG. The proposed mechanism is mechanical stress and vascular insult to the inner retina induced by the ERM leading to thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and subsequent glaucomatous damage.. While this is an interesting theory, it needs to be confirmed by longitudinal studies investigating the temporal relationship between the ERM and RNFL change. In a recent study,1 RNFL was found to be thickened after the development of ERM. However, it is possible that although RNFL was thickened right after the development of an ERM, and persistent mechanical and vascular insult on the inner retinae results in eventual thinning of the RNFL. 2,3 Whether or not persistent traction from an ERM accelerates glaucomatous damage ...

It is shown that dislocations of the boundaries of high adhesion zones in the process of membranectomy can reach 1.5 mm and with the probability greater than 0.7 are greater than 0.5 mm. It is shown that the use of endo-OCT for the operative control of the adhesion map in the process of selective surgery makes it possible to reduce the probability of falling out of the visual fields by more than 80% in the postoperative period. It is shown that in the overwhelming majority of cases (more than 50%), the onset of membranectomy is accompanied by a microtrauma of the retina, which occurs when the epiretinal tissue is first captured with tweezers. The method of application of endo-OCT is presented that is shown to control the first capture of epiretinal tissue by forceps and gives approximately an order of magnitude decrease in the probability of postoperative complications such as local loss of the photosensitivity retina in the zone of the first capture ...

What causes an epiretinal membrane? Usually ERM is related to a posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), which commonly occurs in people over the age of 50. Other disorders such as detached retina and inflammation of the eye, called uveitis, can trigger the formation of ERM, as well as diabetes. ERM can also be caused by trauma to the eye, either by surgery or accidental eye injury. The incidence of ERM in the fellow eye is increased after it develops in the first eye. What are the symptoms of ERM? Although ERM can cause severe vision loss if the scar tissue is thick and occurs in front of the macula, most vision loss is minor and is sometimes not noticed at all. Mild difficulty with seeing detail and fine print, a gray area in the vision or mild disturbances such as straight lines that appear wavy. Occasionally there may be a blind spot. Most people with ERMs have no symptoms, although metamorphopsia (a difference in the perceived size of an image). Some people notice double vision in the effected ...
Purpose. To describe new details of epiretinal cell proliferation in flat-mounted internal limiting membrane (ILM) specimens. Methods. One hundred and nineteen ILM specimens were removed en-bloc with epiretinal membranes (ERMs) from 79 eyes with macular pucker (MP) and 40 eyes with vitreomacular traction syndrome (VMTS). Intraoperatively, posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) was assessed as complete or incomplete. Whole specimens were flat-mounted on glass slides, and processed for interference and phase contrast microscopy, cell viability assay, and immunocytochemistry. Results. Mean cell viability percentage was higher in MP than in VMTS. Two cell distribution patterns were found. Anti-CD163 labeling presented predominantly in MP with complete PVD. CD45 expression was similar in all groups of diagnosis. Anti-GFAP labeling was found in MP irrespective of the extent of PVD. Alpha-SMA labeling mainly presented in MP with incomplete PVD and in VMTS. Simultaneous antibody labeling included ...
