Research offers insights to success in macular hole surgery
Research offers insights to success in macular hole surgeryMacular hole surgery can be performed using various techniques and technologies. According to John T. Thompson, MD, the available evidence supports always incorporating internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling, staining of the ILM, and having a large gas bubble in the eye on the first postoperative day.
ILM removal increases ease, safety of subretinal injectionsRemoving a small area of internal limiting membrane at the intended site of a subretinal injection allows the injection to be delivered without penetrating the retina.
Strategies for macular hole recurrence after small-gauge vitrectomyFindings from a retrospective review provide insights about the outcomes of surgery for recurrent macular holes in the era of small-gauge vitrectomy and possible strategies for reducing their occurrence, said Tarek S. Hassan, MD, at the inaugural Retina World Congress.
