To investigate the relation between preoperative morphologic parameters and surgical outcomes of myopic macular hole (MIH).
Nishi-Kasai Inouye Eye Hospital
Forty-one patients with surgically treated MHs were divided into two groups: group A (MH alone; n=28), group B (MH with retinoschisis or detachment; n=13). Multi-regression analysis was conducted to explore the predictive parameters accounting for surgical outcomes.
Groups A were younger (p=.0065), better pre- and post-operative visual acuities (p=.024 and p=.002), better HMMH closure rate (93% vs 52%, p=.0073), and shorter axial lengths (p=.0019) than Group B. When both groups were examined together, axial lengths were inversely proportional to pre- and post-operative visual acuities (p=.0244 and p=.0544).
urgical outcomes were better in Group A than B. In HMMH, morphology and axial length may influence surgical outcome.
