1. Gas Injection versus Vitrectomy with Gas for Treating Retinal Detachment Owing to Macular Hole in High Myopes

    Objective: To compare the efficacy between intravitreal gas injection alone and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with intraocular gas tamponade in treating retinal detachment due to macular hole in high myopes.Design: Prospective, randomized controlled, multicenter study.Participants: We included 231 eyes of 231 patients with retinal detachment owing to myopic macular hole from 14 study sites in China.Intervention: The patients were randomly assigned to undergo intravitreal perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas injection (group A) or vitrectomy with intraocular C3F8 gas tamponade (group B).Main Outcome Measures: Complete ocular examination included best-corrected visual acuity, applanation tonometry, slit-lamp biomicroscopy, color fundus photography, ultrasound ...
