Welcome @757rbsvbt757. unfortunately, there are always risks with any surgery. According to this website http://theretinagroup.com/macular-hole-surgery/ "There is a 5% risk of retinal tear or detachment. Anytime vitrectomy surgery is performed there is a small chance of developing a tear in the retina which can lead to a detachment during or after surgery."

Did this happen to you?

What is percentage chance of doctor causing at macular hole during vitrectomy surgery,
to repair a particle retina detachment. Than when should patient be informed that they have
a macular hole.

@757rbsvbt757, I'm sure there is always risk that may or may not be caused by the surgeon. Here's some information I found talks about it — "What is the success rate of vitrectomy surgery? The success rate for vitrectomy is around 90 percent, even if you're over 60." — Vitrectomy: Surgery, Recovery, Success Rate, and Cost – Healthline: https://www.healthline.com/health/vitrectomy.

Anytime I've had a surgery, the surgeon and their team has always discussed the risks with me including the anesthesiologist. I'm not sure if the surgeon would know right away there was a problem without feedback from the patient…but then I don't have any medical training or background so this is just my thoughts.
