Summary: Purpose: To
investigate results of vitrectomy with Internal Limiting
Membrane (ILM) peeling for diabetic macular edema (DME).
Material: Ten eyes of 10 patients with DME underwent vitrectomy with ILM removal from August 2004 to May 2005. The preoperative BCVA ranged from 0.04 to 0.1 (average 0.05). Mean preoperative retinal thickness was 522 µm.
Methods: Optical coherence tomography (OCT), fundus photography and fluorescein angiography was performed pre- and postoperatively. Vitrectomy with ILM peeling and fluid/air exchange was performed.
Results: Patients were followed up from 14 to 4 months (average 7 months). Median BCVA improved to 0.1 (range from 0.04 to 0.3). Mean retinal thickness decreased to 296 µm.
Conclusion: In eyes with DME that underwent surgery, the foveal thickness decreased after vitrectomy with ILM removal, which may be effective for diabetic macular edema treatment.
