Although macular holes have a success rate around 85- 90 percent when vitrectomy, peeling of the Membrane limitans interna and gas tamponade is performed, there is a group of more difficult cases which will not respond well to routine surgery.  In this symposium an overview of classifications will be given.  Furthermore, the role of inflammation besides traction forces in the pathogenesis will be discussed.  New technologies for the management of large, persistent and myopic macular holes as there are: ILM flap techniques, subretinal fluid application or the combination of both will be presented as well as latest results with the transplantation of amniotic membrane for hole closure and visual gain by experts in their field.

Moderators: Susanne Binder (Austria), Lyubomyr Lytvyinchuk (Germany)

Introduction, Definition and Future Aspects – Susanne Binder (Austria)
The Inverted Flap Technique in Atypical Full Thickness Macular Holes – Zofia Anna Nawrocka (Poland)
Subretinal Hydrodissection to Close Large Macular Holes: A Global Perspective – Carsten Meyer (Germany)
Combination of Subretinal Administration of Fluid and Inverted ILM Flap Technique as an Alternative Approach – Lyubomyr Lytvynchuk (Germany)
Experience with Amniotic Membrane Transplantation for Large and Chronic Macular Holes – Stanislao Rizzo (Italy). 

Uveitis

Choroidal Inflammation – Understanding the Hidden Layer
Date: Friday 28 January 2022

The choroid remained for many years as an obscure part of the uveal tract with limited ability to examine it. Recent progress in imaging has allowed us to better understand the manifestations of many diseases and gave the ability to monitor disease behaviour and response to therapy. We will focus this webinar on the imaging modalities currently available and the conditions involving the different parts of the choroid.

Structure-Function Relationships in Retina and Neuro-ophthalmology

Recent years have seen ground-breaking developments in structural imaging, but function is sometimes overlooked. Acknowledged International experts will explore structure-function relationships in retinal disease and neuro-ophthalmology in adult and paediatric populations. The presentations, some of which have a symptomatic theme, will emphasise the clinical benefits of integrating structure and function on the diagnosis and management of the patient.

Moderator: Graham Holder (United Kingdom), Dorothy Thompson (United Kingdom)
