    Optical coherence tomography findings after surgery for sub-inner limiting membrane hemorrhage due to ruptured retinal arterial macroaneurysm

    Ruptured retinal arterial macroaneurysm (RAM) can cause sub-inner limiting membrane (ILM) hemorrhage, leading to acute vision loss in the elderly. Vitrectomy has been established as an effective treatment to remove hemorrhage and facilitate visual recovery. Although optical coherence tomography (OCT) is useful for the diagnosis of sub-ILM hemorrhage before surgery, little is known about the postoperative OCT findings. Here, we retrospectively investigated the records of nine eyes of nine patients who underwent surgery for sub-ILM hemorrhage due to RAM rupture. On postoperative OCT, hyperreflectivity throughout the full thickness of the central fovea was observed in eight eyes (88.9%), and ...
