Macular Pseudoholes With Lamellar Cleavage of Their Edge Remain Pseudoholes

Purpose: To reappraise macular pseudohole characteristics using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and characteristics and postoperative outcomes of macular pseudoholes.Design: Retrospective, observational case series.Methods: In this institutional study, 54 eyes with macular pseudohole were selected among 369 patients examined for an epiretinal membrane (ERM) by Cirrus spectral-domain OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec) within a 2-year period. The diagnosis of macular pseudohole was based on the presence of a deep foveal pit, with verticalized edges and a macula thickened by the contraction of an ERM. All eyes underwent color fundus photography and spectral-domain OCT examination comprising a macular map, line raster scans, (Read more...)
