To report on the use of inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap technique in case of choroidal coloboma
Department of Ophthalmology, Poznan, University of Medical Sciences, Poznan-Poland.
We describe a 76 year old woman with gradually visual acuity deterioration due to retinal detachment associated with choroidal coloboma localized inferotemporal to the optic disc. The patient underwent 23 G vitrectomy with inverted ILM flap technique and gas C3F8 tamponade. No endolaser was performed.
2 months after surgery the retina was completely attached and visual acuity improved from 0.3 to 0.7. We observed inverted flap of ILM in the place of choroidal coloboma edge in OCT examination
Vitrectomy with inverted ILM flap technique can be a good option in specific cases of retinal detachment associated with choroidal coloboma
