The past few years have seen the development of several new techniques for the repair of macular holes. Tamer H. Mahmoud, MD, PhD, speaks with Jonathan Prenner, MD, and Richard Kaiser, MD, about a surgical technique he unintentionally developed for macular hole repair. The innovative approach involves the transplantation of tissue from a patient’s peripheral retina.
