Abstract Details

PURPOSE:Based on current theory regarding the pathogenesis of maculopathy associated with congenital optic disc pit and SOCT examination, a rational of PPV and tissue glue into subretinal space injection or simple PPV with SF6 tamponade was discussed.

Setting:

Department of Ophthalmology and Eye Rehabilitation, Medicial University of Lodz, Poland

Methods:

Two young person with maculopathy associated with congenital optic disc pit were treated by vitrectomy, drainage of subretinal fluid, subretinal tissue glue injection and laser retinopexy in 1. case and PPV with subretinal fluid drainage, SF6 gas tamponade and laser retinopexy in 2. case.

Results:

Successful slow reattachment of the macula and improvement of visual activity was achieved in 1. case and significant improvement of visual activity with progress macular reattachment in 2. case.

Conclusions:

Vitrectomy with subretinal tissue glue injection seems to be an effective method of treatment of macular detachment in the course of congenital optic disc pit. This technique seems to be useful when additional factors influencing maculopathy doesn’t occur e.q. vitreomacular traction, remnant Cloquet’s canal.
