    Optical coherence tomography analysis of the recovery of the ellipsoid zone after macular hole surgery: 2-Year results

    Purpose To present the two-year results of ellipsoid zone (EZ) recovery by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) after vitrectomy surgery in large full thickness macular holes (MHs). Methods Thirty eyes of 30 patients were enrolled in this retrospective study. Inclusion criteria were large full thickness idiopathic MH (400 microns), a minimum follow-up period of 24 months and successful repair of the hole with the first surgery. The mean length of the EZ defect was calculated linearly via SD-OCT preoperatively and at postoperative 1st, 3rd, 6th, 12th, 18th and 24th months. The main outcome measures were diameter of the EZ ...
