1. The Role of Abnormal Vitreomacular Adhesion in Age-related Macular Degeneration: Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography and Surgical Results

    Purpose: To assess the incidence of vitreomacular adhesion and traction in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and to evaluate surgical treatment in a subset of patients with choroidal neovascularization (CNV) nonresponsive to anti-neovascular growth factor (anti-VEGF) treatment.Design: Retrospective observational case-control and interventional case series.Methods: Spectral optical coherence tomography, combined with simultaneous scanning laser ophthalmoscope (Spectral OCT/SLO), was performed in 170 eyes of 94 elderly patients, 61 with exudative AMD, 59 with nonexudative AMD, and 50 control eyes. The presence of hyaloid adhesion to the posterior pole, and vitreomacular traction (VMT) were determined. Five patients with VMT underwent surgical ...
