MH is sight-threatening and not uncommon; however, not until 1991 did Kelly and Wendel reported it to be treatable via internal limiting membrane (ILM) peeling assisted pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), which was later established to be a standard surgical technique for this condition.[sup][1] The second milestone of MH surgery was laid by Kadonosono et al .
reported Nd:YAG laser photodisruption of hemorrhagic detachment of the internal limiting membrane in 1989 and it has been used for Valsalva retinopathy since that report [3].
Currently, the classic procedure for treating IMH is pars plana vitrectomy with peeling of the internal limiting membrane and intraocular gas tamponade, followed by a face-down position for several days [4, 5].
