To evaluate the feasibility of transplanting a full-thickness patch of choroid, choriocapillaries, Bruch’s membrane and RPE (RPE-choroid FTAP) from the peripheral to the subfoveal area of the same eye, after performing a 180° peripheral retinotomy and removing subfoveal choroidal neovascularization.
