Free ILM Flap Technique Under PFCL for Recurrent and Difficult Macular Holes



This video describes a perfluoro-n-octane (PFO) assisted autologous internal limiting membrane (ILM) transplantation technique for difficult macular hole (MH) cases. We harvest a free ILM flap and transplant it into the MH under a PFO bubble. The time, at which PFO is injected, the extent of coverage of PFO and the sequence of fluid air exchange (FAE) are crucial to overcome previously described technical difficulties of relieving the flap from forceps, stabilizing the flap into the MH and prevention of flap dislodgement during FAE.
