In addition, ICG angiography was performed in all patients before and after surgery. Cellular elements found in the excised membranes included RPE cells, vascular endothelium, inflammatory cells (including rare foreign-body giant cells), red blood cells, smooth muscle cells, and fibrocytes (spindle-shaped cells). Acellular constituents included basal laminar deposits, Bruch’s membrane, collagen, and fibrin. No correlation was found between the anatomical location of the membranes (sub-RPE vs. subretinal) and the ICG angiographic features (well demarcated vs.
