Abstract

Purpose :
To evaluate the efficacy of preoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in macular epiretinal membrane (ERM) to plan surgical strategy and do the surgeries smoothly.

Methods :
One hundred twenty–three eyes of 121 patients (49 men, 72 women; mean age, 66.1 years) with idiopathic ERM were enrolled in this study.OCT using CirrusT™ HD–OCT 4000 and/or 5000 was performed in all patients to evaluate the retinal thickness, occurrence rate and location of both edges and partial detachments in patients with ERM preoperatively.

Results :
OCT using 3–dimentional visualization mode detected identifiable edges in 61 eyes (50%) and partial detachments in 116 eyes (94%) of all ERMs. Vitreo–retinal interface analysis on Cirrus HD-OCT 5000 could do so as well. Both the edges and the partial detachments were more frequently observed in the inferior side of the macula. After the center area,the superior side was relatively the thickest in patients with ERM.

Conclusions :
Preoperative acquired OCT findings are useful for us to do the surgeries smoothly.
