Vitreo-papillary Traction as an Entity Identified by Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique in ophthalmology. This clear and documented imaging identified new diseases/ observations that were not previously known.
Condition or disease
Tomography, Optical Coherence
Other: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
In ophthalmology vitreo-macular adhesion, vitreo-macular traction and posterior vitreous detachment were recognized entities for a long time. On the other hand vitreo-papillary adhesion/ traction is a fairly new concept in ophthalmology that became known after the use of OCT in ophthalmology imaging. Reasons, effects and ways of treatment of vitreo-papillary traction will take some time to evolve. The case study in which this traction was documented was initiated by an observation of a persistent, tiny single retinal hemorrhage above the optic disc of an eye. The patient was completely asymptomatic because of the vitreo-papillary traction but the OCT documentation of the case was so clear and striking.
