Abstract

In diabetic patients with massive vitreous hemorrhage, fluorescein angiography after pars plana vitrectomy demonstrated varying degrees of vascular involvement depending on the stage of the basic disease process. Arteriolar occlusions, capillary bed drop out, microaneurysms, and neovascularization were common findings. The authors concluded that diabetic retinopathy continued its course behind the cloudy vitreous, sometimes leading to retinal ischemia and subsequent spontaneous involution, macular disease, or retinal detachment. In addition, some of these patients were also subject to nondiabetic diseases, such as senile macular degeneration, that could not be detected preoperatively, but that reduced visual acuity postoperatively. In the nondiabetic patients with vitreous hemorrhage, visual acuity after vitrectomy usually depended on the degree of coincident macular disease.
