Abstract Purpose: To report changes in systemic blood pressure during surgery for epiretinal membrane in patients with and without hospitalization.

Cases and Method: This retrospective study was made on 94 patients who received surgery for epiretinal membrane during a one-year period. The series comprised 37 males and 57 females. The age averaged 71 years. Surgery was performed in 40 cases with hospitalization and in 54 cases without hospitalization. Systemic blood pressure was monitored before and during surgery.

Results: Systemic blood pressure was elevated just before and during surgery as compared with baseline. Patients with systemic hypertension showed higher values of systemic blood pressure by 9.2 mmHg just before and by 15.6mmHg during surgery than those without systemic hypertension.

Conclusion: Systemic blood pressure was often elevated just before and during surgery for epiretinal membrane. We advocate due monitoring of blood pressure in patients undergoing surgery.
