To describe a patient with newly developed paracentral acute middle maculopathy after uncomplicated epiretinal membrane removal.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Retinal cases & brief reports
The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of persistent postoperative cystoid macular edema (pCME) in patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy with epiretinal membrane peel (ERM) only versus ...
To describe the occurrence of epiretinal membrane (ERM) in eyes with vitreomacular traction and to correlate the presence of ERM with retinal structural alterations detected using spectral domain opti...
The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal dexamethasone implant for the treatment of macular edema after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for epiretinal membrane (ERM...
To investigate the retinal capillary perfusion density by means of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) in idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM) and macular pseudoholes (MPH).
To evaluate the relationship between retinal traction caused by epiretinal membrane and visual functions.
Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) at the macula originates from hyperfluorescence from retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and blockage of hyperfluorescence by macular pigment. Investigators eval...
It was the aim of the present study to prospectively compare the functional and morphological outcome of idiopathic epiretinal membrane surgery with and without the assistance of Indocyani...
Caffeine concentrations in the vitreous Body and exzised epiretinal membranes are measured by gas-chromatography/mass spectrometry. One hour before surgery patients in the caffeine Group w...
Examination of aniseikonia in epiretinal membranes patients before and after surgery
Investigation of the reading parameters and fixation behavior in patients with different ocular diseases (age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic maculopathy, epiretinal membr...
A membrane on the vitreal surface of the retina resulting from the proliferation of one or more of three retinal elements: (1) fibrous astrocytes; (2) fibrocytes; and (3) retinal pigment epithelial cells. Localized epiretinal membranes may occur at the posterior pole of the eye without clinical signs or may cause marked loss of vision as a result of covering, distorting, or detaching the fovea centralis. Epiretinal membranes may cause vascular leakage and secondary retinal edema. In younger individuals some membranes appear to be developmental in origin and occur in otherwise normal eyes. The majority occur in association with retinal holes, ocular concussions, retinal inflammation, or after ocular surgery. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p291)
Surgical removal of the diseased cells from the MASTOID PROCESS. It often involves simultaneous resection and/or repair of the MIDDLE EAR and EAR DRUM in MIDDLE EAR CHOLESTEATOMAS and MASTOIDITIS.
A mass of KERATIN-producing squamous EPITHELIUM that resembles an inverted (suck-in) bag of skin in the MIDDLE EAR. It arises from the eardrum (TYMPANIC MEMBRANE) and grows into the MIDDLE EAR causing erosion of EAR OSSICLES and MASTOID that contains the INNER EAR.
Vitreoretinal membrane shrinkage or contraction secondary to the proliferation of primarily retinal pigment epithelial cells and glial cells, particularly fibrous astrocytes, followed by membrane formation. The formation of fibrillar collagen and cellular proliferation appear to be the basis for the contractile properties of the epiretinal and vitreous membranes.
An oval semitransparent membrane separating the external EAR CANAL from the tympanic cavity (EAR, MIDDLE). It contains three layers: the skin of the external ear canal; the core of radially and circularly arranged collagen fibers; and the MUCOSA of the middle ear.
