Abstract

Purpose: To review the outcomes of pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane (ILM) peel, and gas tamponade in the management of traumatic paediatric macular holes. Methods: Retrospective case series of children undergoing vitrectomy, ILM peel, and gas tamponade for traumatic macular hole between March 2007 and July 2014. Main outcome measures were postoperative visual acuity at 3 and 12 months, anatomic closure rate, and surgical complications. Results: Anatomic macular hole closure was achieved in 12 (92.3%) of 13 cases. Mean preoperative logMAR visual acuity was 0.91 (95% CI 0.65-1.17) with improvement postoperatively to 0.54 (95% CI 0.43-0.64) at 3 months (p = 0.002) and 0.50 (95% CI 0.39-0.60) at 12 months (p = 0.002). There were no perioperative complications. Conclusion: Pars plana vitrectomy and ILM peel is an effective management option for paediatric macular holes.
