Purpose: To report the 1-year results of human amniotic membrane patch implantation for optic disc pit maculopathy. Design: A prospective, consecutive, interventional study. Methods: Eleven eyes of 11 patients affected by optic disc pit maculopathy associated with subretinal/intraretinal fluid were included in this single-institution study. A 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy was performed in all cases, with an implant of a human amniotic membrane patch into the optic disc pit and air was injected as endotamponade. The primary study outcome was the subretinal and intraretinal fluid reabsorption. Secondary outcomes were visual acuity improvement and postoperative complications. Results: Mean central retinal thickness gradually diminished from 512 ± 137 µm to 243 ± 19 µm, at the 12-month follow-up. The mean visual acuity improved from 20/80 at baseline to 20/32 at the 12-month follow-up. Complete fluid resorption occurred in 9 of 11 (81.8%) eyes and there was partial resorption in 2 eyes (18%). No subretinal fluid recurrence was observed during the 12-month follow-up. No intraoperative or postoperative complications were reported during the follow-ups. The amniotic membrane patch remained detectable inside the pit for the entire follow-up time. Conclusion: An amniotic membrane plug may be effective for improving optic disc pit maculopathy. All cases had an anatomical improvement and encouraging visual acuity recovery.

Abstract

Purpose: To report the 1-year results of human amniotic membrane patch implantation for optic disc pit maculopathy. Design: A prospective, consecutive, interventional study. Methods: Eleven eyes of 11 patients affected by optic disc pit maculopathy associated with subretinal/intraretinal fluid were included in this single-institution study. A 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy was performed in all cases, with an implant of a human amniotic membrane patch into the optic disc pit and air was injected as endotamponade. The primary study outcome was the subretinal and intraretinal fluid reabsorption. Secondary outcomes were visual acuity improvement and postoperative complications. Results: Mean central retinal thickness gradually diminished from 512 ± 137 µm to 243 ± 19 µm, at the 12-month follow-up. The mean visual acuity improved from 20/80 at baseline to 20/32 at the 12-month follow-up. Complete fluid resorption occurred in 9 of 11 (81.8%) eyes and there was partial resorption in 2 eyes (18%). No subretinal fluid recurrence was observed during the 12-month follow-up. No intraoperative or postoperative complications were reported during the follow-ups. The amniotic membrane patch remained detectable inside the pit for the entire follow-up time. Conclusion: An amniotic membrane plug may be effective for improving optic disc pit maculopathy.
