Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to report two photo-cases of inner limiting membrane (ILM) defect staining during repeated vitrectomy. Methods: This study is an interventional case report. Two cases are reported in which the ILM defect was indocyanine green (ICG) stained and photographed during repeated vitrectomy for a persistent macular hole. Results: The ICG dye demonstrated a large circular area of nonstaining centered on the macular hole, corresponding to the area denuded of the ILM in the first operation. These areas were documented by video photography. Conclusion: The ILM most probably does not regrow after peeling in a way that it could be stained by ICG. A successful ILM peeling does not guarantee closure of macular hole, but repeated ILM peeling may have additional beneficial effect.
