Subretinal Tissue Glue Injection in Surgery of Macular Detachment Associated With Congenital Optic Disc Pit

Piotr Jurowski, Anna Górnik, Kinga Hadlaw- Durska and Grzegorz Owczarek

Congenital optic disc pit is a rare finding that develops from incomplete closure of the embryonic choroid fissure. Maculopathy is a major cause of visual deterioration. The treatment of the macular detachments associated with congenital optic disc pits remains controversial however it is emphasized that rerouting fluid from subretinal space may be efficient method. Main drawback of commonly use surgical methods is slow reabsorption of fluid taking weeks or even months. We report a different surgical approach in 2 patients consisting of vitrectomy, subretinal tissue glue injection followed by gas tamponade that allowed achieving very fast functional and anatomic recovery within 1 month.
