    Accuracy of Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography of the Macula for Detection of Complete Posterior Vitreous Detachment

    Purpose To assess the accuracy of macular spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in detecting complete posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). Design Evaluation of diagnostic test or technology using a retrospective comparative study. Subjects 175 eyes in 175 patients (111 female, 64 male; mean age = 65 years) with pre-operative OCT within 90 days of vitrectomy. Methods PVD status on preoperative macular OCT was compared to PVD determination during vitrectomy. Attached vitreous was identified on OCT by visualizing the posterior vitreous cortex or the premacular bursa. Complete PVD was identified by the absence of these findings, and was considered a positive outcome ...
