dc.description.abstract BACKGROUND and OBJECTIVE: To analyze a variety of vitreomacular traction (VMT) morphologies to establish a major classification that better reflects the preoperative predictive factors of postoperative visual and anatomic outcomes.PATIENTS and METHODS: Thirty-six eyes submitted to vitrectomy surgery were categorized with a VMT pattern (V- or J-shaped) and diameter (focal < 1,500 mu m or broad > 1,500 mu m) based on optical coherence tomography.RESULTS: the researchers compared different classifications of VMT. Despite similar postoperative best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) values (P = .393), cases with focal VMT had greater visual improvement (P = .027) because the preoperative BCVA was significantly lower in the focal group (P = .007). However, the BCVA improvements did not differ between the groups regarding the classic VMT morphologic patterns (P = .235).CONCLUSION: Postoperative outcomes and macular disorders are closely related to VMT size. the adhesion diameter (focal or broad VMT) and not the classic VMT morphologic pattern (V- or J-shaped) may better predict the postoperative anatomic and functional outcomes. en
