Abstract Details



Purpose:

To analyze the long-term effects of pars plana vitrectomy for nontractional diabetic macular edema.

Setting:

Interventional, retrospective, case study.

Methods:

Sixteen patients (18 eyes) with diabetic macular edema were examined retrospectively after pars plana vitrectomy. Postoperative follow-up ranged from 24 to 66 months (mean, 44.8 months).

Results:

The preoperative visual acuity was 0.65 +/- 0.35 logMAR and central retinal thickness was 485 +/- 121 μm; both improved significantly at 12 months, to 0.44 +/- 0.33 logMAR and 345 +/- 140 μm, were maintained for at least 36 months in all cases.

Conclusions:

Pars plana vitrectomy may be beneficial in eyes with nontractional diabetic macular edema and its effectiveness is maintained long term.
