Macular hole plus pucker

DOI: 10.3207/3795031927

Since the introduction of dyes in macular hole surgery we recognize the admixture of more or less epiretinal membrane in conjunction with macular hole formation. I do not imply a correlation of epimacular membranes to macular hole formation since even severe pucker formation occur without macular hole. Adressing those combined macular holes and epiretinal membranes we first need to peel the epiretinal membrane, which we find in the non-stained area. Thereafter we need to check whether the ILM went with the epiretinal membrane or whether remnants of ILM are still present and are to be removed more easily in the second part of the peeling.
