Introduction: We described a case of initial unsuccessful outcome of failed macular hole treated with amniotic membrane, that resolved after amniotic membrane exchange and silicone oil injection. Case Description: a woman affected by a high myopic macular hole that had failed to close after multiple surgeries, had been treated using an amniotic membrane graft and 20% sulfur hexafluoride but, after the gas reabsorption, the macular hole was still open, and the amniotic membrane. A second surgery with a second amniotic membrane patch and silicone oil was carried out. Two weeks after the procedure the macular hole closed, and the final visual acuity improved from 20/400 to 20/100. Conclusions: In this case, a second surgery, using a new amniotic membrane graft and a longer-lasting endotamponade, closed the hole and improved the visual acuity.

Abstract

Introduction: We described a case of initial unsuccessful outcome of failed macular hole treated with amniotic membrane, that resolved after amniotic membrane exchange and silicone oil injection. Case Description: a woman affected by a high myopic macular hole that had failed to close after multiple surgeries, had been treated using an amniotic membrane graft and 20% sulfur hexafluoride but, after the gas reabsorption, the macular hole was still open, and the amniotic membrane. A second surgery with a second amniotic membrane patch and silicone oil was carried out. Two weeks after the procedure the macular hole closed, and the final visual acuity improved from 20/400 to 20/100. Conclusions: In this case, a second surgery, using a new amniotic membrane graft and a longer-lasting endotamponade, closed the hole and improved the visual acuity.
