TitleResults of RPE translocation for complicated AMD: the good, the bad and the ugly
PurposeSince May 2015 the author has performed 44 cases of RPE translocation surgery to treat complicated age related macular degeneration. The indications for surgery have included large submacular hemorrhage, retinal pigment epithelial tear, fibrotic contraction of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) and high risk pigment epithelial detachment. Highly standardized surgical approach has yielded encouraging and reproducible results. Risk of severe visual loss after surgery is low and no case of PVR has been recorded to date. Nevertheless, complications such as hemorrhage and non-perfusion of the graft can limit the visual recovery after surgery. In addition, risk of recurrence of CNV necessitates long term follow-up.
