Abstract

Purpose of Review: To review and critically appraise the recent literature about new surgical techniques for the management of large or recurrent macular holes. Recent Findings: A variety of surgical approaches have recently been developed ranging from autologous retinal grafts to amniotic membrane transplant with varying levels of anatomical and visual success. Summary: More data is needed to determine if one technique is superior to others. However, with a variety of grafts, adhesives, and tamponades at their disposal, vitreoretinal surgeons have an extensive array of options to approach complex macular holes.
