To observe the result of butterfly-shaped internal limiting membrane peeling in the treatment of macular hole.
Chengdu Aier Eye Hospital
3 eyes with macular hole were conducted 25-gague vitreoretinal surgery. Coomassie brilliant blue staining was used in all 3 eyes. In the conduct of internal limiting membrane, part of internal limiting membrane near temporal and nasal macular were retained to make the internal limiting membrane appear as butterfly wing. Gas or silicone oil tamponade was applied at the end of surgery.
Macular hole closed 3 to 7 days post-surgery and all the 3 eyes had better visual acuity than pre-surgery.
Butterfly-shaped internal limiting membrane peeling is a new method treating macular hole based on traditional internal limiting membrane peeling. It can keep horizontal tension by retaining part of internal limiting membrane near temporal and nasal which can promote closure of macular hole.
