Abstract

Internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling is an important maneuver in vitrectomy for macular holes (MHs). A nitinol loop is a surgical instrument designed to create an edge on the ILM and peel the ILM safely and consistently. The effect of using a nitinol loop for ILM peeling on the retina is not clear. We report here on a case of an idiopathic full-thickness MH in an adult woman, in whom retinal damage was revealed after her ILM was peeled using a nitinol loop.
