Purpose: To present a modified surgical technique, based on a combination of human amniotic membrane (hAM) patch and autologous Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in a case of recurrent retinal detachment (RRD) due to a perivascular retinal hole over an area of staphyloma in an eye with pathologic myopia. Methods: Presenting the surgical technique with the disposal of surgical video. After performing 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) the hAM patch was inserted under the neuroretina through the perivascular hole and PRP was injected on top to speed up the closure of the hole. To complete the surgical procedure High Viscosity Silicon oil (5000cst) was used as tamponade. The patient was prescribed to maintain a face-down position for the first 3 days after the operation. Follow-up was evaluated through Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. Results: The 3 days postoperative OCT showed a flat retina with the filling of the myopic staphyloma. The hAM patch was well positioned and the retinal hole could not be identified. At 6 weeks from intervention, the site of the retinal hole at OCT scan was covered by new tissue. Silicone oil was removed 3 months later with no recurrence. Conclusion: hAM transplantation is a novel technique in case of retinal detachment recurrences to seal retinal holes over high myopic chorioretinal atrophy. The adjunctive use of PRP and high viscosity silicon oil allows to reducing the standard face-down positioning timing, representing a valid solution for elderly patients who have difficulties maintaining the position for long periods.

Abstract

Purpose: To present a modified surgical technique, based on a combination of human amniotic membrane (hAM) patch and autologous Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in a case of recurrent retinal detachment (RRD) due to a perivascular retinal hole over an area of staphyloma in an eye with pathologic myopia. Methods: Presenting the surgical technique with the disposal of surgical video. After performing 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) the hAM patch was inserted under the neuroretina through the perivascular hole and PRP was injected on top to speed up the closure of the hole. To complete the surgical procedure High Viscosity Silicon oil (5000cst) was used as tamponade. The patient was prescribed to maintain a face-down position for the first 3 days after the operation. Follow-up was evaluated through Optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans. Results: The 3 days postoperative OCT showed a flat retina with the filling of the myopic staphyloma. The hAM patch was well positioned and the retinal hole could not be identified. At 6 weeks from intervention, the site of the retinal hole at OCT scan was covered by new tissue. Silicone oil was removed 3 months later with no recurrence. Conclusion: hAM transplantation is a novel technique in case of retinal detachment recurrences to seal retinal holes over high myopic chorioretinal atrophy. The adjunctive use of PRP and high viscosity silicon oil allows to reducing the standard face-down positioning timing, representing a valid solution for elderly patients who have difficulties maintaining the position for long periods.
