Advances in Vitreoretinal Interface Disorders

Description

In recent years there have been various advances in vitreoretinal interface disorders, based on the International Vitreomacular Traction Study Group classification of vitreomacular adhesion, traction, and macular hole. In fact, the vitreomacular traction gained crescent interest for the application of enzymatic vitreolysis with ocriplasmin. In addition, the use of new diagnostic equipment and of advanced surgical machines for the treatment of vitreoretinal interface disorders is of special interest.

We invite investigators to contribute original research, clinical studies, experimental studies, and review articles on vitreoretinal interface disorders. We are particularly interested in articles about newly developed techniques of imaging, diagnosis, and treatment of vitreoretinal interface disorders.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in the techniques of imaging (enhanced depth imaging OCT, swept source OCT) of the vitreoretinal interface disorders
  • Advances in genetics regarding vitreoretinal interface disorders
  • Pharmacokinetics of drugs used for the treatment of vitreoretinal interface disorders
  • Potential correlation of vitreoretinal interface disorders with macular diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration or diabetic macular edema
  • The role of internal limiting membrane stains for vitreoretinal interface disorders treatment
  • The inverted flap technique and other new techniques for macular hole treatment
  • Advances in treatment alternatives of vitreoretinal interface disorders
