AbstractWe report five cases of persistent macular holes following conventional surgery. Subsequent management included pars plana vitrectomy, extended Trypan Blue-assisted ILM peel and heavy silicone oil (HSO) tamponade with supine posture. PURPOSE: To report results of redo macular hole surgery using heavy silicone oil (HSO) tamponade. METHODS: Retrospective study of patients with primary failure of macular hole surgery, who failed to posture prone due to medical reasons. Further surgery consisted of vitrectomy, extended-dye-assisted ILM peel, and HSO tamponade with supine posture. RESULTS: Anatomical closure of macular holes was achieved in three out of five cases with parallel improvement in visual acuity after 3 months of removal of heavy silicone oil. These were confirmed clinically and by ocular coherence tomography (OCT). CONCLUSIONS: HSO may be used as tamponade in patients with unsuccessful primary macular-hole surgery, negating the need of prone posturing post-operatively.
