Abstract Details


Air-tamponade and saline at the end of 23G-PPV with membrane peeling are both regarded standard treatment options. Aim of our study is to examine differences in outcome between air-tamponade and saline.


Department of Ophthalmology at the Hanusch Hospital Vienna.


Prospective non-randomized study, including pseudophakic patients scheduled for 23G-PPV with membrane peeling, due to idiopathic epiretinal membranes. Preoperative best corrected visual acuity and OCT, intraoperative OCT during peeling and best corrected visual acuity and OCT results 3 months after surgery are assessed.


Differences in functional (best corrected visual acuity) and anatomical (OCT) outcome between patients with air-tamponade and saline are presented.


Both, air-tamponade and saline can be regarded as good standards of treatment for 23G-PPV with membrane peeling.
