Macular hole surgery were tried by different surgeons using many techniques with different successes but still there were many recurrences. In this study the investigators try to close these distinct types including recurrent holes using pre-prepared amniotic membrane.

Full description

It is an interventional study of using amniotic membrane graft for closure of macular hole associated retinal detachment in patient who had a previous failed macular surgery.
