Abstract Details



Purpose:

Hypermyopia may cause macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD). Vitrectomy with hemi-inverted internal limiting membrane (ILM) flap technique has been successfully performed for refractory MH. We report two cases using this technique for macular hole retinal detachment (MHRD).

Setting:

Retrospective method

Methods:

Case 1: A 76-year-old female. Her decimal best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) of the right eye was 0.04, and axial length was 27.46mm. Vitrectomy with hemi-inverted ILM flap technique was performed for MHRD with posterior staphyloma. At 6 months postoperatively, decimal BCVA of the right eye was 0.03 with a closure of macular hole and retinal reattachment. Case 2: A 67-year-old female. Her decimal BCVA of the right eye was 0.04, and axial length was 29.2mm. Vitrectomy with ILM flap technique was performed for MHRD involving 2 quadrants. At 6 months postoperatively, decimal BCVA of the right eye improved to 0.6 with a closure of macular hole and retinal reattachment.

Results:

Although long-term follow-up with large number of patents is required, vitrectomy with hemi-inverted ILM flap technique for MHRD may be useful for macular hole closure and retinal reattachment.

Conclusions:

Although long-term follow-up with large number of patents is required, vitrectomy with hemi-inverted ILM flap technique for MHRD may be useful for macular hole closure and retinal reattachment.
