    The effect of epiretinal membrane surgery on macular microvasculature: an optical coherence tomography angiography study

    Purpose To investigate both the possible effects of both idiopathic epiretinal membrane (IERM) itself and surgery on macular microvascular structure using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCT-A) and to determine the associations with structural and visual outcomes. Methods Twenty-four eyes of 24 patients with IERM and 24 eyes of 12 healthy controls were included. Vascular parameters, including the superficial capillary plexus (SCP) and deep capillary plexus (DCP) were evaluated by OCT-A prior to and 6 months after ERM removal. The foveal avascular zone (FAZ, mm 2 ) area, parafoveal vascular density (VD, %) and flow area (mm 2 ) measurements were used to evaluate ...
