Further study details as provided by Rubens Belfort Jr., Federal University of São Paulo:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Visibility of the membrane after injection of the dye [ Time Frame: during the surgery ]
    The visibility of the membrane after injection of the dye should be graduated by the physician as Bad, OR Fair, OR Good, OR Very Good


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Degree of impregnation of the dye [ Time Frame: during the surgery ]
    The degree of impregnation of the membrane by the dye should be graduated according to the following scale:(0)not flushed; (1)stained weakly (light green); (2)moderately stained (medium green); (3)stained intensely (dark green)

  • Usefulness of the dye [ Time Frame: at the end of surgery ]
    the physician should evaluate the usefulness of the dye, according to the following scale: Bad, Fair, Good, Very Good


Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: October 2012
Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dye of Lutein/Zeaxanthin/Brilliant Blue
during the surgery will be evaluated if the dye is suitable for dyeing the internal limiting membrane as well as the epiretinal membrane
Other: Dye of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Brilliant Blue
dye composed of Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Brilliant Blue will be used during the vitrectomy surgery to dye the membranes
Other Name: lutein, zeaxanthin, brilliant blue

Detailed Description:
Twenty five patients with epiretinal membrane, macular hole or proliferative diabetic retinopathy and indication of vitrectomy surgery will be selected to participate in this study.
