Abstract Details



Purpose:

To test validity of vitrectomy as a primary intervention for virgin eyes with diabetic macular edema (no previous laser, anti-VEGF,and no intraor postoperative TA) all cases was not a accompanied by cataract extraction. No other ocular or macular pathology was accepted in the study. Aim to proof that vitrectomy is non-inferior sustainable and more economic approach to manage cases of centre involving clinically significant macular edema

Setting:

Management of centre involving macular edema is great economic challenges in developing countries

Methods:

Inclusion criteria 20 eyes with centre involving macular edema more than 300micron exclusion criteria cases with previous cataract surgery within previous 6 months, cases undergone previous intravitreal injections, cases with vitreomacular traction, cases with proliferative diabetic retinopathy

Results:

Both CMT and BCVA were significantly improved The mean CMT changed from 576.80 ± 169.74 µm (range 393-1000) at base line to 306.20 ± 47.08 µm (range 245-443) at 6 months, (statistically significant). The mean BCVA (LogMAR) changed from 1.04 ± 0.17 (range 0.7 -1.3) at base to 0.74 ± 0.27 (range 0.3-1.3) at 6months (statistically significant).

Conclusions:

Pars plana vitrectomy may have a role as a primary intervention for naive eyes with clinically significant macular edema
