The purpose of our study was to determine the frequency of persistent posterior hyaloid adherence to the posterior pole in patients with exudative AMD.
Alexandria university -Egypt
A consecutive case series of 40 eyes with exudative AMD patients was included. All patients had CNV due to AMD and underwent a complete ophthalmologic examination. All eyes underwent fluorescein angiography (FA) . OCT examination was done through a dilated pupil using commercially available Cirrus HD-OCT Model 4000 – Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin , California. USA and Spectralis OCT Heidelberg engineering.
No PVD 15/40(37.5%). Begining PVD 7/40(17.5%) VMT vitreomacular traction10/40(25%) detachment from the fovea 3/40(7.5%) complete PVD 5/40(12.5%)
The OCT findings suggests that a localized vitreous adhesion is associated with a high incidence of choroidal neovascularization. PVD may be protective against AMD, whereas VMA may promote exudative AMD.
