Abstract Details


The describe clinical cases of macular edema in patients undergoing phacoemulsification, and to evaluate the role of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion in its development.


Ophthalmological Clinic 'Eye Surgery' Samara,Russia


Presented two clinical cases, where, after standard phacoemulsification and implantation of an intraocular lens developed cystoid macular edema. Examination, including OCT, revealed the presence of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion. Monitored over the treatment and status of vitreo-macular interface with OCT weekly-control; special attention is paid to the dynamics of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion.


As a result of conservative treatment achieved good functional and anatomical results – complete detachment of the posterior hyaloid membrane and the elimination thereby of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion. Discusses the role of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion and its traction component, the critical increase during the phacoemulsification led to the formation of macular edema.


In the pathogenesis of postoperative macular edema significant role is played by the original symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion. Marked fluctuations of the vitreous body due to fluctuations of intraocular pressure during phacoemulsification reinforce the traction component of the symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion and can contribute to the development of macular edema. Timely conservative treatment may lead to complete detachment of the posterior hyaloid membrane and the elimination of symptomatic vitreo-macular adhesion with positive anatomical and functional results.
