A Modified Perfluoro-n-octane Assisted Autologous Internal Limiting Membrane Transplant for Failed Macular Hole Reintervention: A Case Series

A Modified Perfluoro-n-octane Assisted Autologous Internal Limiting Membrane Transplant for Failed Macular Hole Reintervention: A Case Series ABSTRACT We describe a modified perfluoro-n-octane (PFO) assisted autologous internal limiting membrane (ILM) transplantation technique for macular hole (MH) reintervention and present our results from a series of 11 patients. We harvest a free ILM flap and transplant it into the MH under a PFO...

MH Formation in a Patient with PVD

We present a case of a 53 year old male who had macular hole surgery in the left eye. The right eye of the patient had a normal macular examination with posterior vitreous detachment confirmed with Optical Coherence Tomography. During follow up we observed a macular hole formation. Our case is a good demonstration of macular hole formation occurred with the tangential forces in a patient with complete posterior vitreous detachment.

Spontaneous Closure of a Myopic MH in a Vitrectomized Eye

We report on a 50 years-old female patient who underwent pars plana vitrectomy for a dropped nucleus and developed thereafter a myopic macular hole. The hole closed spontaneously during follow up. The patient had been referred to our clinic for a dropped nucleus on both eyes, and she underwent subsequent pars plana vitrectomy. We did not implant an intraocular lens because of the high myopic refraction. After surgery her visual acuity was...
