Inverted ILM Flap for the Treatment of Myopic MH

Purpose: To describe the functional and anatomical results of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap for the treatment of macular holes with or without retinal detachment (RD) in highly myopic eyes. Methods: Twenty-nine eyes affected by macular hole, associated (n=6) or not (n=23) with retinal detachment in high myopia (average axial length 26.80 mm) underwent PPV with inverted ILM...

New Indication for the Macular Buckle in High Myopia

Myopic traction maculopathy associated with posterior staphyloma is not successfully treated with endobulbar approach. In fact vitrectomy is linked to a high rate of iatrogenic macular holes or to unsuccessful surgery. Macular buckle can be successfully used to treat not only macular detachment with macular hole, but also macular detachment without macular hole and macular foveoschisis. The presentation will show how a simpler and faster...

A Novel Episcleral Macular Buckling Technique for Recurrent Macular Hole Retinal Detachment in High Myopic Eyes

The purpose would be to describe and evaluate a novel technique of episcleral macular buckling in postvitrectomy recurrent macular hole retinal detachment in highly myopic eyes. A 7 mm silicone sponge strengthened with a U-shaped 0.5 mm orthodontics stainless steel wire fed along its length and hand-bent to produce L-shaped buckle of appropriate shape and length, is used. The episcleral macular has been performed on 15 highly myopic eyes...

Long-term Outcome of PPV and C3F8 Tamponade in the Treatment of Myopic Macular Hole Associated RD

Advantages: To determine the long-term outcome associated with anatomical success in the treatment of retinal detachment (RD) due to myopic macular hole by pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas tamponade. Methods: In this retrospective survey we evaluated the preoperative and postoperative data of 23 eyes that underwent PPV for myopic macular hole RD. Effectiveness / Safety: The mean postoperative follow-up was...

ILM Peeling with Brilliant Blue in Retinal Detachment with a Macuar Hole in a Highly Myopic Eye

Nur Acar, Ziya Kapran, Yaprak Banu Unver (Istanbul, Turkey) ILM peeling in retinal detachment with a macuar hole in a highly myopic eye is sometimes difficult. In this video ILM peeling with Brilliant Blue in retinal detachment with a macuar hole under heavy perflourocarbon fluid in a highly myopic eye is demonstrated. In highly myopic young eyes ILM may be very tightly adherent, and sometimes statining with triamcinolone acetonide is not...

Management of Myopic Macular Hole Retinal Detachment

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/Management-of-Myopic-Macular-Hole-Retinal-Detachment.flv Hassan Mortada Advantages: Drainage of the subretinal fluid through the macular hole during fluid air exchange in myopic macular hole retinal detachment has several disadvantages. It traumatizes the edge of the hole and may result in enlargement of small holes in case of viscous subretinal fluid. The present work presents a technique for...
