Comparison of Success Rate According to the Duration of Prone Positioning After MH Surgery

Poster Young-suk Chang Purpose: To investigate the optimal duration of postoperative prone positioning after macular hole (MH) surgery by the comparison of the anatomical success rate. Methods: The clinical records were reviewed of all patients treated at Kim’s eye hospital between February 1, 2006 and February 28, 201 3, for an idiopathic macular hole. Coexisting ocular disease such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, retinal vessel...

Short-term Postoperative Non-supine Positioning vs Strict Face-down Positioning in Macular Hole Surgery

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy of short-term non-supine positioning (NSP) and strict face-down positioning (FDP) in the repair of macular hole (MH). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed all MH repairs over a 27-month period (2008-2010). Inclusion criteria were idiopathic full thickness stage 2-4 MH treated by a single surgeon with 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane peeling and gas...

Macular Hole Surgery Without Face-down Positioning Using the Latest Vitreoretinal Techniques

Purpose: To evaluate the success rate of surgical repair of full-thickness macular holes without face-down positioning in a large series. Methods: A retrospective chart review of 81 consecutive patients with idiopathic full-thickness macular holes <750m in diameter were treated with standard surgical techniques by a single surgeon (PET). Surgical technique included 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy, ICG-assisted peeling of the internal...
