One author has advocated role of IVB, in releasing vitreoretinal traction and resolution of VH.7 Another study conducted on two patients of ED, with vitreoretinal traction and VH showed resolution of VH and traction.
In eyes of PDR, the combination of MH and RD usually signifies severe and complex vitreoretinal traction; thus, the closure rate of MH after conventional ILM peeling surgery may, as a consequence, also be less satisfactory [8, 9].
OCT results were related into three groups (1) Vitreo foveal traction: at the center of macula (fig-1a) (2) Extra foveal traction: vitreoretinal traction elsewhere at the posterior pole in between vascular arcades (3) Epi retinal membrane: diagnosed as difference in the brightness of surface tissues (fig-1b).

All of the various techniques utilized in the management of retinal detachment aim to create an adhesion to prevent fluid exchange between the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and sensorial retina in the area surrounding the retinal tear, to thus enable RPE active transport and reabsorption of the subretinal fluid, to reduce the effects of vitreoretinal traction, and to prevent new tear formation.

Surgery in the posterior segment of the eye--posterior vitrectomy--is recommended in the cases of nonabsorbent hemorrhage into the vitreous cavity, PDR, with, for example, tractional retinal detachment, proliferation of vitreoretinal membranes (PVR), epiretinal membrane formation, and vitreoretinal traction syndrome.
Peripapillary vitreoretinal traction syndrome, with retinal thickening next to the ONH is associated with PVD [15, 16].
(17) It is now accepted that the early event leading to macular hole formation is persistent vitreoretinal traction. Macular holes can be classified using OCT into four stages as follows:
It is helpful in detecting vitreoretinal traction that may not have been identified clinically.
In patients with ROP, there are several reports of vitreoretinal traction band formation and retinal detachment following anti-VEGF therapy [7, 8, 21, 23].
