Intraoperative SD-OCT findings predict VA outcomes after PPV for macular hole repair

TORONTO — Intraoperative spectral-domain optical coherence tomography during macula-involving detachment repair reveals persistent subretinal fluid in all patients under perfluoro-n-octane tamponade, a presenter here said.Furthermore, intraoperative predictors of poor visual acuity outcomes included increased retinal thickness, increased outer retinal thickness and disorganized outer retina, but presence of fluid did not result in a statistically significant difference between good and poor visual acuity outcomes, Sunil K. Srivastava, MD, said at the American Society of Retina Specialists meeting.
