OCT-guided postoperative posturing protocol improves macular hole closure rate

A personalized protocol with a shorter duration of posturing after vitrectomy yielded a high rate of macular hole closure, especially in pseudophakic eyes, according to study findings.“The overall success rate of macular hole closure with pro re nata posturing was comparable with that of the traditional 7 days of prone positioning. This suggests that immediate posturing after surgery is not required, and posturing may be imposed when needed as determined by the [spectral-domain optical coherence tomography] images,” the authors wrote.
