Summary:

Purpose: to analyze the parameters of the microcirculation of the macular area in patients operated on by the method of ultrasound vitrectomy 25G for idiopathic through macular opening (IMO) and epiretinal fibrosis (ERF). Material and Methods. ОСТ angiograms of 35 patients operated on by ultrasound vitrectomy for idiopathic through macular opening (IMO) and epiretinal fibrosis (ERF) before and for 3 months after surgery were analyzed. The following parameters of microcirculation of the retina were investigated: the area of the foveal avascularzone (FAZ), the density of the foveal vessels in the ring 300 urn around the FAZ, the density of the vessels in the superficial and deep capillary networks of the retina. Results. The FAZ area with IMO decreased within 3 months, while with ERF an increase in this parameter was recorded (p<0.05). In the superficial capillary network in both pathologies there was a decrease in the density of the vascular pattern (p<0.05), in IMH there was a tendency to recovery to the pre-op values. The deep capillary network was characterized by decrease of vascular pattern density to 1 month with following increase to 3 month (p<0.05). Conclusion. Features of the dynamics of the parameters of the microcirculation of the macular area in different periods of the postoperative period largely depend on the nature of the pathology, the stress response of the tissue to the operative traumaand the degree of recovery of the vascular pattern of the retinal neuroepithelium in the superficial and deep capillar networks.
