Adjunctive therapy with macular hole surgery

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The current clinical frontiers of macular hole surgery include the following objectives: (1) improve the visual and anatomic success rate (especially in the cases with relatively worse prognosis), and (2) attempt to improve the convenience of the treatment and recovery (for example, the need for compulsive facedown postoperative positioning). Adjunctive therapies may have a place in the practice of macular hole surgery if they help achieve either of these objectives, but careful studies are necessary to substantiate their benefits.
