Inverted ILM Flap Technique for the Treatment of Chronic and Large Idiopathic MH with the Use as a Vital Dye Suspension “Vitreocontrast”

ABSTRACT Recently, inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap technique has been reported to increase the anatomical closure rates of large and chronic macular holes(MH). But the technique is limited by difficulty in visualizing the flap using traditional vital dyes, its possible cytotoxic effects and relative mobility of the flap, complicating maintaining the inverted ILM flap inside the hole during fluid-air exchange with high rate of...

Tamponade quality determines anatomical outcome. For a variety of reasons it is practically impossible to create an ideal tamponade with silicone oil. “Conventional” silicone oil floats upwards in the vitreous cavity. This results in a good tamponade of the upper retina, but leaves the...
