    Pars Plana Vitrectomy with Air Tamponade for Optic Disc Pit Maculopathy: Swept-source Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging Findings and Surgical Approach

    Purpose: To describe how Swept Source Optical Coherence Tomography (SS-OCT) provides enhanced diagnostic information enabling optimisation of surgical strategy in a pediatric patient suffering from ODP maculopathy. We report the first case of successful management of ODP maculopathy via pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and air tamponade. Methods: Interventional case report. Results: A five-year-old girl presented with ODP and serous macular detachment in her previously amblyopic left eye. SS-OCT showed optically opaque vitreous fibres perpendicularly attached to the base of the optic nerve head excavation and what appeared to be fibrous tissue at the base of the excavation of the optic ...
