Abstract

Purpose: To report 2 cases of the use of autologous retinal graft for the surgical treatment of traumatic atrophic large macular holes with old retinal detachment.


Case report: The patients had pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peeling and flattening of the retina under perfluorocarbon liquid, and autologous retinal graft to close the large atrophic macular holes. Postoperative
reviews show closure of the macular holes, attachment of the retina and some improvement of visual acuity.

Conclusion: Autologous retinal free patch transplantation may offer a new solution for treatment of large chronic traumatic macular holes with old retinal detachment.
