Embedding of Epiretinal Proliferation for a Secondary Lamellar Macular Hole 12 Years after Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Repair

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A 58-year-old Japanese man underwent vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in 2002. Twelve years later, optical coherence tomography revealed the development of a lamellar macular hole; the visual acuity was 20/200. Two years later, because metamorphopsia and the foveal retina thinning were aggravated, epiretinal proliferation embedding was performed to restore the foveal structure by transplanting glial cells to the foveal cavity. The patient was followed-up for 4 years, and his macular morphology and visual acuity (20/66) improved. No complications occurred. This appears to be the first report of epiretinal proliferation embedding for a lamellar macular hole post-RRD repair.
