Anatomical and functional outcomes one year after vitrectomy and retinal massage for large macular holes.

Indian J Ophthalmol 2021 04;69(4):895-899

Vitreoretina Services, Disha Eye Hospitals, Kolkata, West Bengal, India.

Purpose: The aim of this study was to report results of macular hole closure, visual benefit and longitudinal changes in foveal architecture over 1 year following macular hole surgery with retinal massage.

Methods: Records of patients with full thickness macular hole (FTMH) with minimum basal diameter of 550 μ who underwent vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling and retinal massage were drawn up. Retinal massage was performed after dye assisted ILM peeling, using a 27G flute needle with a long and soft silicone tip under air in a centripetal direction around the FTMH. At the end, 10% CF gas was used as tamponade. The foveal contour at 1 year follow up was recorded based on its cross sectional appearance on OCT and was classified into U, V and irregular types of closure as previously described.

Results: Forty-one eyes of 41 patients with a mean age of 70.4 ± 6.9 years were included. The mean preoperative vision was 0.99 ± 0.07 logMAR and mean maximum basal diameter of the FTMH was 835 ± 208 μ. Macular hole closure was seen in all patients at 1-month follow up. The BCVA improved to 0.5 ± 0.1 log MAR at 6 months (P < 0.001) and then stabilized. The U shaped closure was the commonest pattern (n = 22, 54%), followed by V-shaped closure (n = 16, 39%) while irregular closure was seen in 3 eyes (7%).

Conclusion: Retinal massage after ILM peeling is a very simple, and as yet under-utilized manoeuvre that may improve hole closure rates and lead to potentially greater improvement in vision compared to existing techniques for large holes.

Resolution of serous retinal detachment following partial sclerectomy with mitomycin C in nanophthalmos.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2013 May-Jun;44(3):287-9

Rajendra Prasad Centre for Ophthalmic Sciences, AIIMS Ansari Nagar, New Delhi, India.

The authors report the results of partial-thickness sclerectomy combined with mitomycin C in a nanophthalmic eye with serous retinal detachment. Partial sclerectomy in two quadrants with adjuvant use of mitomycin C without drainage of subretinal fluid was performed. The patient was monitored with serial fundus photographs and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) for up to 16 weeks postoperatively. Best corrected visual acuity improved from counting fingers at 1 meter preoperatively to 6/60 at final follow-up. There was gradual but complete resolution of serous retinal detachment both clinically and on SD-OCT. Partial-thickness sclerectomy with mitomycin C is an effective and safe procedure in the management of nanophthalmic eyes with uveal effusion.
