Purpose: To analyze long term results of a novel surgical technique implicating the use of a human amniotic membrane patch (hAM) to settle a serous macular detachment in an optic nerve head pit.
Methods: We describe a case a 42 years old male affected by macular serous detachment associated with optic disk pit (OPD) treated with vitrectomy and intravitreal apposition of Human Amniotic Membrane
Results: Postoperative period recorded no complications; CDVA improved from 1.5 to 0.5 logMAR and OCT scan shows reduced serous macular detachment in the first year, unfortunately at 18 months an unexpected relapse occurred.
Conclusion: Considering the follow up, our case could open a debate for the long term effects of HAM apposition. Further case and additional techniques, or even a clinical trial may be necessary to additionally prove the full efficacy of this technique.
