Spontaneous separation of premacular membranes

Zusammenfassung

Prämakuläre epiretinale Membranen werden heute in der Regel chirurgisch separiert, um den Visus der Patienten zu verbessern. Wir konnten drei Fälle von spontaner Separation beobachten. Diese erfolgte jeweils innerhalb von sechs Monaten nach Versorgung eines peripheren Netzhautrisses bzw. einer Retinoschisis mit Laserkoagulation oder nach Operation einer Netzhautabhebung. Aufgrund dieser Beobachtung empfehlen wir, eine chirurgische Separation der Membran erst nach einem Zeitraum von sechs Monaten vorzunehmen.

Summary

To improve the vision of patients with premacular epiretinal membranes vitreous surgery with separation of the membranes is usually performed. We present three patients with spontaneous separations of premacular membranes, which occurred within six months after treatment of a retinal break or retinoschisis with lasercoagulation or after a retinal detachment-operation. Therefore we recommend vitrectomy surgery for premacular epiretinal membranes, unless a spontaneous separation is seen after six months.
