Síndrome de tracción vitreorretiniana

César Atencia, Hernán Ríos, Francisco J. Rodríguez


La Tracción vitreomacular (TVM) hace parte de un grupo de trastornos que
se cree tienen una génesis similar, y teniendo en cuenta las variaciones de la
terminología en la literatura, es fundamental tener claridad sobre los conceptos
básicos, por tal motivo se realiza un artículo de revisión de literatura donde se
describe la historia, defi nición, clasifi cación, asociaciones y nuevos tratamientos
del síndrome de tracción vitreomacular en la actualidad.
