The Boston Keratoprosthesis type I (KPro) is the most common keratoprosthesis implemented in the United States. Potential postoperative complications include retro-KPro membranes, endophthalmitis, choroidal detachment, cystoid macular edema, epiretinal membrane, vitreous hemorrhage and retinal detachment. Retinal detachment has been reported in as many as 18.6% of KPro patients, including rhegmatogenous, tractional, and serous detachments. There are currently no reports of retinal detachments confined to the posterior pole due to a macular hole. Surgical treatment options for posterior pole retinal detachments in patients with KPro include standard vitrectomy approaches with either gas or silicone oil tamponade of the macular hole.In this report, we describe the clinical course for a posterior pole retinal detachment due to a macular hole in a patient with a KPro.
