    Risk factors for epiretinal membrane formation and peeling following pars plana vitrectomy for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, an OCT guided analysis

    Background: To evaluate the rate and risk factors of epiretinal membrane (ERM) formation and need for ERM peeling after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for uncomplicated primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Methods: Retrospective, single-center, cohort study of 119 consecutive patients (119 eyes) that underwent RRD repair using PPV. The primary outcomes were ERM formation, classified using an optical coherence tomography grading system, and the rate of ERM peeling. Visual acuity, postoperative complications, and risk factors for ERM formation and peeling were also identified. Results: Postoperative ERM formation occurred in 69 eyes (58.0%); 56 (47.1%) were stage 1, 9 (7 ...
