    Intraoperative optical coherence tomography-assisted displacement of prepapillary membrane in eyes with optic disc pit maculopathy

    Purpose: To determine the efficacy of displacing a prepapillary membrane during vitrectomy assisted by intraoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) to treat eyes with optic disc pit maculopathy. Method: Pars plana vitrectomy was performed with 27-gauge instruments on 4 eyes of 4 consecutive patients for optic disc pit maculopathy with retinoschisis and foveal detachment. After creating a posterior vitreous detachment, the prepapillary membrane was made visible by brilliant blue G staining. The membrane was peeled from the central retinal vessel and inverted and placed over intraretinal clefts or stuffed into the optic disc pit. These procedures were guided by intraoperative OCT ...
