PURPOSE To compare the results of vitrectomy with complete internal limiting membrane (ILM) removal and inverted ILM flap in the treatment of myopic macular hole (MMH). METHODS Seventy eyes of 68 patients with MMH undergone pars-plana vitrectomy (PPV) with either complete ILM removal (n = 36, Group 1) or inverted ILM flap technique (n = 34, Group 2) were(More)
Seventeen VTIM pacers were implanted in seventeen patients. Average follow up were 16.7 months. This paper concerns TX track and TX on modes only. Sensing window period and slope, which determine the rate response, must be programmed carefully. Potential competitive rhythms, severe ventricular arrhythmias or inadequate rate response to physical stress may(More)
The mechanism of closure of a macular hole (MH) is not yet fully understood. Spontaneous closure in nontraumatic cases is possible, but quite rare.1 Alternatively, vitrectomy and gas tamponade, with or without internal limitingmembrane (ILM) peeling, achieve anatomic success in 80% to 95% of cases. During recent years, different techniques have been(More)
