Management of Autologous Retinal Transplant Complications: A Case Series.
Retina (Philadelphia, Pa.)
PURPOSE: To present representative cases of the most common complications associated with an autologous retinal transplant (ART) for macular hole repair.
METHODS: A retrospective, consecutive case series on patients that underwent an ART by a single provider (THM).
RESULTS: Four cases were included in this review. Each suffered an ART-specific complication, including graft displacement and dislocation, sub-ART Perfluoron, and a delayed proliferative vitreoretinopathy-associated retinal detachment.
CONCLUSIONS: As more surgeons utilize ART to treat atypical macular holes, an adequate understanding of surgery-specific complications and techniques to treat those complications is increasingly necessary.
