- A 73-year-old woman with macular pucker underwent a pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling. Additionally the patient suffers from diabetic retinopathy after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus sixteen years ago. Prior to the procedure she was treated with a series of intravitreal Bevacizumab-injections due to diabetic macular edema. There was no history of a proliferative DRP. During the vitrectomy a branch of an obliterated NVE spontaneously detached and floated freely in the vitreous. The 3D shot was captured via Alcon’s NGENUITY® 3D Visualization System in form of photograph and video providing an outstandingly detailed image of the branched NVE.
