Displacement of the Retina and Its Recovery After Vitrectomy in Idiopathic Epiretinal Membrane – Corrected Proof

Objective: To study the displacement of the retina and its change after vitrectomy in idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM).Design: Prospective, interventional case series.Methods: Fifty-six eyes of 53 consecutive patients with ERM underwent vitrectomy with ERM removal and internal limiting membrane peeling. Fundus autofluorescence (FAF) imaging was examined before and at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after vitrectomy. Main outcome measures were the proportion of eyes with retinal displacement for ERM detected by FAF imaging and the recovery rate of retinal displacement after vitrectomy.Results: Before surgery, FAF photography demonstrated hyperautofluorescent lines within the vascular arcade in 37 (66.1%) of the 56 eyes.
