Combined Versus Successive Macular Hole and Cataract Surgery

The purpose of this study is to compare functional and anatomical results of a combined surgery and two time surgery for macular hole and cataract extraction in one hundred and twenty pati...

Full Thickness Macular Hole and Internal Limiting Membrane Peeling Study

A macular hole is a fairly common problem in the retina and is an important cause of loss of central vision. The aim of this study is to determine whether, in patients with a stage 2 or 3 ...

Microperimetry and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Idiopathic Macular Hole

To evaluate the correlations between anatomical and functional changes studied with microperimetry (MPM) and spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) in patients after successful repair of idiopathic ...

Objective Evaluation of Postoperative Positioning in Macular Hole Surgery

The macular hole formation takes place in the centre of the retina. A closure of the macular hole is believed to take place if the central retinal area is kept dry in the postoperative per...

Early Vitrectomy for Impending Macular Hole

This study is designed to verify hypothesis that early vitrectomy may prevent impending macular hole from progression to full-thickness macular hole.

Ocriplasmin-Induced Macular Hole Closure in the Absence of Vitreomacular Adhesion Release.

A 79-year-old man presented with a symptomatic, full-thickness macular hole with concurrent vitreomacular traction (VMT), stage 2. The patient was treated with a single injection of ocriplasmin. Withi...

Full thickness macular hole case after intravitreal aflibercept treatment.

The pathogenesis of macular hole formation is widely accepted as a tractional force at the vitreo-retinal interface in fovea. We report a case of macular hole after intravitreous aflibercept injection...

Wider Retinal Artery Trajectories in Eyes with Macular Hole Than in Fellow Eyes of Patients with Unilateral Idiopathic Macular Hole.

To determine whether the width of the retinal artery (RA) trajectory was associated with the presence of a macular hole (MH).

A new method to predict anatomical outcome after idiopathic macular hole surgery.

To investigate whether a new macular hole closure index (MHCI) could predict anatomic outcome of macular hole surgery.

Prediction of spontaneous closure of traumatic macular hole with spectral domain optical coherence tomography.

It has been known that some traumatic macular holes can close spontaneously. However, knowledge about the types of macular hole that can close spontaneously is limited. In this retrospective study, we...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.

Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease. (From Survey of Ophthalmology 2004; 49(5) 470-90)

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.

An opening or hole in the ESOPHAGUS that is caused by TRAUMA, injury, or pathological process.

A hole or break through the wall of the UTERUS, usually made by the placement of an instrument or INTRAUTERINE DEVICES.
