Abstract Details



Purpose:

To present 2 cases which underwent pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and planned macular detachment for 2 distinct diagnoses: the removal of a large foveal hard exudate in one diabetic patient (video of surgery included) and a traumatic full thickness macular hole (FTMH) with adhesive and attached distant margins probably untreatable with standard PPV in a second patient (preop and postop images included).

Setting:

Ophthalmology Department, Meir Medical Center, Kfar-Sava, Israel

Methods:

The two patients underwent PPV, posterior hyaloid peel and subretinal macular basic salt solution (BSS) injection causing iatrogenic transient macular detachment.

Results:

In both cases the surgical anatomical outcomes were excellent, however without significant functional visual improvement.

Conclusions:

Surgical macular detachment may be a good surgical solution for challenging cases of foveolar specific pathologies.
