Double Inverted Flap Technique for Stage IV MH

Aim: To present a modification of the conventional inverted flap technique in stage IV macular hole surgery. Technique: After a core vitrectomy and trypan blue-assisted ILM peeling. Two vertical tears were created, temporal and nasal, to the fovea. Boht flaps were folded over the fovea creating a large ILM peeling. Air fluid exchange was followed by SF6 25% injection. Results: Six eyes of 6 patients were treated with this technique and...

My Way to Perform the Inverted Flap Technique for MH

Introduction: Full-thickness idiopathic macular holes are foveal anatomic defects with a complete interruption of all retinal layers. This results in a significant visual impact for the patient. Current surgical options are constantly under debate, particularly after the new International Vitreomacular Traction Study Group classification. Various surgical options have been proposed to boost the closure rates in this disorder, namely...

Why Did I Choose the Inverted ILM Flap Technique?

Simple surgical maneouver. Better anatomical results. Earlier visual recovery. Large and difficult macular holes may be succesfully closed with this technique. No additional equipment/ dye etc. is necessary. Enables hole closure in different indications (traumatic, high myopia). It allows succesful treatment of myopic macular hole with retinal detachment. Reoperations are predictable, logic and easy to perform. Temporal inverted ILM...
