Spontaneous resolution of vitreomacular traction demonstrated by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography – Accepted Manuscript

Abstract: Purpose: To evaluate the natural course of idiopathic vitreomacular traction (VMT) with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) from the vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) stage to the spontaneous resolution of VMT.Design: Prospective observational case series.Methods: We studied the natural course of idiopathic VMT in 46 eyes (46 patients) divided into those that proceeded to spontaneous VMT resolution (12 cases) and those that remained at the VMT stage (34 cases). All patients were examined with SDOCT at regular three-monthly intervals. We recorded the vitreomacular angle of VMA nasally and temporally, the horizontal diameter of VMA, macular thickness, visual acuity, photoreceptor layer, and (Read more...)
