1. FACEDOWN POSITIONING AFTER VITRECTOMY WILL NOT FACILITATE MACULAR HOLE CLOSURE BASED ON SWEPT-SOURCE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY IMAGING IN GAS-FILLED EYES: A Prospective, Randomized Comparative Interventional Study

    FACEDOWN POSITIONING AFTER VITRECTOMY WILL NOT FACILITATE MACULAR HOLE CLOSURE BASED ON SWEPT-SOURCE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY IMAGING IN GAS-FILLED EYES: A Prospective, Randomized Comparative Interventional Study

    Purpose: To compare clinical outcomes in eyes with macular hole (MH) managed by either facedown (FD) or no-FD (nFD) postoperative positioning protocols. Methods: This is a prospective randomized cohort study. Eighty eyes of 80 consecutive patients with MH who had undergone vitrectomy surgery with internal limiting membrane peeling and gas tamponade were included in this study. Forty eyes of 40 patients who were kept in FD position for 3 days after surgery were assigned to the FD group, 40 eyes of 40 patients with nFD positioning were assigned to the nFD group. Macular hole was examined with swept-source optical coherence ...
