PURPOSE Macular translocation by chorioscleral infolding has been proposed as a surgical intervention for exudative age-related macular degeneration, but the surgery is unpredictable and can be associated with severe complications. We tested a new surgical technique, macular translocation with chorioscleral outfolding secured by neurosurgical clips. METHODS This was a prospective interventional study in two parts; the first in human cadaver eyes and the second in pigs. Chorioscleral infolding…

TLDR
Macular translocation with radial chorioscleral outfolding using 4-mm clips resulted in the best foveal displacement and improvement in visual function, and was associated with the least amount of vision loss and complications.
Macular translocation with chorioscleral outfolding: 2-year results.
TLDR
Macular translocation with radial chorioscleral outfolding improved or stabilized the vision in 66.7% of patients with subfoveal CNV over the course of more than 2 years, and factors associated with a decrease in postoperative visual acuity included the postoperative enlargement of CNV.
Two-year results of macular translocation with scleral infolding in myopic choroidal neovascularisation
TLDR
MT with scleral infolding offers the opportunity to recover central vision and reading ability in patients with myopic CNV but it remains unpredictable.
Morphologic and angiographic assessment of the macula after macular translocation surgery with 360° retinotomy
TLDR
The newly located macula after macular translocation surgery with a 360° retinotomy had cystoid macular edema on fluorescein angiography and normal macular configuration with normal thickness in optical coherence tomography.
Long-term results after limited macular translocation surgery for wet age-related macular degeneration
TLDR
The results indicate that the impaired function of the sensory retina at the fovea can recover on the new RPE after the displacement for at least 5 years, which is important for future treatments of CNVs such as the transplantation of RPE cells and stem cells.
Initial experience of macular translocation in Singapore - one-year results.
TLDR
Macular translocation is a new treatment modality that offers patients with subfoveal CNV a chance of improving their vision, potentially to a level that may allow reading and driving.
Limited macular translocation
TLDR
A consistent increase with age was identified in the prevalence of late lesions of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), from near absence at age 50 years to about 2% prevalence at age 70 years and about 6% at age 80 years.
Effect of experimental scleral shortening on axial length of the rabbit eye.
TLDR
A large amount of scleral invagination resulted in more shortening of axial length, but there was more corneal astigmatism in 180-degreeInvagination of the sclera than in 360-degree.
Current status of macular translocation surgery
TLDR
The knowledge of the fixation and microperimetry pattern enables better understanding of the macular dysfunction in eyes with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization and should be useful for evaluation of baseline retinal cell viability in order to optimise patient selection.

TLDR
Newer strategies are emerging to better ameliorate or prevent the complications of pathologic myopia.

Macular translocation for subfoveal choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration: a prospective study.
TLDR
The initial experience with limited macular translocation suggests that this surgical technique is unpredictable, however, in patients with subfoveal choroidal neovascularization from age-related macular degeneration, it offers the potential for improving visual function and may be associated with less loss of vision than the disease itself, if allowed to progress.
Translocation of the retina for management of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization I: experimental studies in the rabbit eye.
TLDR
Limited retinal translocation with repositioning of the central retina was accomplished in rabbits, and electroretinographic studies showed transient reduction in retinal function.

Limited foveal translocation may offer a therapeutic modality to preserve or improve vision in cases of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization.
Retinotomy and foveal translocation for surgical management of subfoveal choroidal neovascular membranes.
TLDR
The technique of foveal translocation has the potential for restoring central visual function in certain patients with subfoveal neovascular membranes, based on the technique of macular relocation.

TLDR
Foveal translocation with intentional retinal detachment and scleral shortening was useful in improving visual acuity in two patients with myopic neovascular maculopathy.
Decreased choriocapillaris perfusion following surgical excision of choroidal neovascular membranes in age-related macular degeneration
TLDR
Macular changes following surgical excision of subfoveal choroidal neovascular membranes in age-related macular degeneration in AMD are evaluated and choriocapillaris atrophy may partly underlie the limited visual outcome following sub foveal surgery for AMD.

TLDR
The long-term prognosis of CNV secondary to age-related macular degeneration treated with repeated courses of PDT is being evaluated in a phase III trial, and preliminary results suggest no damage to retinal structures within the treated area clinically.
