Intraoperative OCT may impact decision-making during vitreomacular traction surgery

Subclinical findings on optical coherence tomography during vitreomacular traction surgery can affect decisions made during the course of the surgery, according to study findings.The retrospective, consecutive case series included 12 eyes of 12 patients who underwent 23- or 25-gauge three-port pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) repair of vitreomacular traction (VMT). All patients had preoperative spectral-domain OCT scanning to verify the presence of VMT. Researchers analyzed clinical characteristics and findings from intraoperative OCT images.
