Figure 11. The possible mechanism of idiopathic epiretinal membrane (ERM). The posterior wall of the posterior precortical vitreous pocket (P) is a collagen sheet that serves as a structure of the ERM. When posterior vitreous detachment occurs, the posterior wall of the posterior precortical vitreous pocket may remain on the macula. Cellular proliferation on the collagen sheet may modify the nature of ERM. P = posterior precortical vitreous pocket.
