Vitreous amotio


Amotio of a vitreous is a morbid condition of an eye at which there is a vitreous otkhozhdeniye from a retina. Vitreous amotio (also known as back amotio of a vitreous, ZOST) can occur practically at each person. At 53% of people 50 years are more senior and at 65% 65 years are more senior the vitreous exfoliates from a retina.

Vitreous Amotio symptoms:

It is difficult to speak about duration of development of ZOST as it is possible to track it in dynamics seldom (amotio or is available at the time of survey, or it is absent). Besides, ZOST not always happens full (a vitreous otsloyeno from a retina throughout). Partial ZOST when fibers of a vitreous are attached to a retina in some places, is especially dangerous as it is connected with excess draft from all mass of the otsloyenny and waving at the movements by eyes vitreous on limited sites of a retina. In such situation the majority of the complications connected with ZOST also meet.

It should be noted what passes in absolute majority of cases of ZOST without any long-term effects. Most often ZOST leads to formation of a peripheral rupture of a retina (8-15% of cases of ZOST), retina amotio (seldom), to stratification of a retina, a vitreous hemorrhage (13-19%, but the majority of these cases is not followed by deterioration in sight), formation of a macular gap.
