Abstract

Purpose: : To report the safety and efficacy of 25-Gauge (25G) vitrectomy (PPV) for macular pucker (MP).

Methods: : A single center retrospective case series of 173 eyes (173 patients) that underwent 25G PPV for MP. Main outcome measures were change in best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) & complications.

Results: : All patients were observed for a minimum four months (range 4-26 months), with a mean ten month follow-up. Mean preoperative BCVA was 20/80. Mean postoperative BCVA was 20/30, of which 61% had ≥ 20/40. Complications included the following: 16% progression of cataract, 1.2% intraocular pressure (IOP) >30, 4% IOP <6 on postoperative day one (resolved by on week), 1.2% vitreous hemorrhage, 1.2% retinal detachment, 6.4% cystoid macular edema.
