Temporal Inverted Flap Technique for MH Closure. A Comparative Study

Advantage: The aim of this study is to present the comparative non-randomised study of Temporal Inverted Flap Technique vs. Classic ILM Flap Technique for Macular Hole Closure. Methods: This is a single center, comparative study. 43 eyes of 39 patients mean age 67, were operated with classic ILM Flap technique (Group A) and 44 eyes of 40 patients, mean age 66, were operated on using only a temporal flap of ILM (Group B). In group B, ILM...
