Epiretinal membranes – current diagnostics methods and surgical treatment
Languages of publication
Błony nasiatkówkowe są częstym schorzeniem dotykającym głównie osoby po 50. r.ż. Podstawową metodą obrazowania błon nasiatkówkowych jest optyczna koherentna tomografia, zaś metodę z wyboru w leczeniu objawowych błon nasiatkówkowych stanowi witrektomia. W niniejszym artykule omówiono zastosowanie witrektomii w leczeniu błon nasiatkówkowych z uwzględnieniem aktualnego stanu wiedzy na temat wskazań do leczenia operacyjnego oraz możliwych powikłań pooperacyjnych.
Epiretinal membranes occur in population over 50 years old. Optical coherence tomography has become a useful tool in diagnosis of this condition. Pars plana vitrectomy is a standard procedure in treatment of epiretinal membranes. The aim of this article is to present a current state of knowledge about surgical treatment and its complications.
