Does High Myopia Predict Failure in Macular Hole Surgery?
January 24, 2011
From the American Journal of Ophthalmology comes a study finding that axial length of 30mm and greater was associated with a macular hole repair success rate of zero (!) compared to 26-30 mm (92%). It was 73 % in 26mm and greater eyes, compared to 100% in those 26mm or less.
The study was small- 52 eyes, but one can certainly see a trend here, and that should be taken into account when discussing risks and benefits.
