    1. Diagnostic Reliability of Optical Coherence Tomography Biomarkers for Postsurgical Success in Visual Acuity in Patients with Idiopathic Epiretinal Membranes

      Diagnostic Reliability of Optical Coherence Tomography Biomarkers for Postsurgical Success in Visual Acuity in Patients with Idiopathic Epiretinal Membranes

      Introduction: Several optical coherence tomography (OCT) biomarkers for postsurgical success in patients with idiopathic epiretinal membranes (iERMs) have been described in single predictor analyses. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of diagnosis of OCT biomarkers and to calculate their impact on postsurgical visual acuity by applying multiple regression analysis. Methods: This retrospective study included patients scheduled for pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling for iERMs. Presurgical OCT scans were analyzed for the presence of OCT biomarkers by two reviewers. Intra- and interobserver reliability was calculated with the Kuder-Richardson 20 test. Results: Among the 136 patients included ...

    2. Macular disease detection with a swept-source optical coherence tomography-based biometry device in patients scheduled for cataract surgery

      Macular disease detection with a swept-source optical coherence tomography-based biometry device in patients scheduled for cataract surgery

      Purpose To assess the sensitivity and specificity for detecting macular disease with a new optical biometry device with swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) used before cataract surgery. Setting Hanusch Hospital, Vienna, Austria. Design Consecutive case series. Methods This study included patients with or without macular disease. All patients were scanned using the new biometry device (IOLMaster 700), which allows a 1.0 mm central retinal scan using SS-OCT technology. Also, all eyes were assessed using a dedicated retinal OCT device (RTVue) on the same day. Two experienced examiners and 1 ophthalmology resident graded all scans individually. Sensitivity and specificity for ...

    4. Visualizing Macular Structures During Membrane Peeling Surgery With an Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Device

      Visualizing Macular Structures During Membrane Peeling Surgery With an Intraoperative Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Device

      BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine the quality of intraoperative visualization of the posterior hyaloid, epiretinal membrane (ERM), inner limiting membrane (ILM), and hyporeflective subfoveal zone with a commercially available, microscope-integrated spectral-domain OCT setup (mi-SD-OCT) (Rescan 700; Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Germany). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty patients prospectively scheduled for pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling due to an idiopathic ERM were included. Standard 23-gauge, three-port pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling and staining of the ERM with a trypan blue-based chromovitrectomy dye was performed in all cases. Intraoperative SD-OCT was performed before and after ...
