Abstract
To investigate retinal displacement in the macula after surgical closure of idiopathic macular hole and to identify factors correlated with displacement. This retrospective multicenter study included 73 eyes of 73 patients having idiopathic macular hole. A custom program was developed to compare the position of the retinal vessels in the macula between preoperative and postoperative photographs. En face images of a 6 mm × 6 mm optical coherence tomography volume scans were registered to calculate the scale. A grid comprising 16 sectors in 2 rings (inner; 2–4 mm and outer; 4–6 mm) was superimposed. The displacement of the retinal vessels was measured as a vector value by comparing the location of the retinal vessels in each sector. The correlation between displacement and various clinical parameters was analyzed. The average displacement was 57.2 μm at an angle of −3.3° (nasal and slightly inferior). Displacement was larger in the inner ring (79.2 μm) than in the outer ring (35.3 μm, P < 0.001), and larger in the temporal sectors than in the corresponding nasal sectors (P ≤ 0.008). Inferior and superior displacement was noted in the superior and inferior sectors, respectively. Multiple regression analysis revealed that basal horizontal macular hole diameter and size of internal limiting membrane removal were independent factors of displacement. The macula was displaced centripetally, nasally, and slightly inferiorly after surgical closure of idiopathic macular hole. Hole closure, contraction of the nerve fiber layer, and gravity are the suggested mechanisms of macular displacement caused by internal limiting membrane peeling.

RESULTS. A DONFL appearance was found in 31 (66.0%) eyes on color fundus photography. The postoperative best-corrected visual acuity and its improvements were not significantly different between eyes with and without this appearance. The SD-OCT images showed small inner retinal defects corresponding to each arcuate stria in all eyes with the DONFL appearance. Of these eyes, 25 (80.6%) included inner retinal defects extending beyond the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) into the ganglion cell laye...

PURPOSE: To investigate the papillofoveal distance and its association with retinal thickness on optical coherence tomography (OCT) images after vitrectomy for diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: In this retrospective case series, 72 eyes of 57 consecutive patients who underwent vitrectomy for DME were included. Retinal images dissecting the fovea horizontally were obtained using OCT before and after vitrectomy. After identification of the disc margin and the presumed foveal center, the papil...

Purpose To investigate the correlation between postoperative metamorphopsia and macular deformation after macular hole (MH) surgery. Methods This study included 28 eyes of 28 patients who underwent vitrectomy and internal limiting membrane (ILM) removal for idiopathic MH. The retinal vasculatures were compared between preoperative and postoperative photographs, and postoperative deformation of the macula was assessed as deformation of the square grid. The displacement of each node was measured, ...

The failed macular hole is a full-thickness defect involving the fovea that fails to close despite 1 or more surgeries. While many surgical options have been proposed to manage it, none of these guarantee complete anatomical success and satisfactory visual recovery. We report postoperative outcomes on 36 patients affected by failed macular hole, treated with a human amniotic membrane plug transplant. Follow-ups were performed with a standard ophthalmological examination and with advanced multimo...

Methods In this retrospective, interventional, comparative case series, 10 patients who had undergone hAM plugging for a MH were included in the study. Seven patients had idiopathic full-thickness MHs, 1 patient had traumatic MH, and 1 patient each had a MH-induced retinal detachment and combined retinal detachment. The control group included 10 cases with similar configuration and...

It has been reported that the macular region of the retina is displaced after vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling in eyes with macular hole (MH), but the displacements of the deeper layers of the eye, e.g. RPE and choroid are unclear following the surgery. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) and OCT angiography (OCTA) to obtain 3 mm × 3 mm en face images before, and 2, 4, and 8 weeks following the vitrectomy with internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling from 22 eyes o...
