Protocol for RCT of Posturing in Phacovitrectomy for Full Thickness Macular Hole (FTMH)

2014-07-23 21:11:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of postoperative posturing on the outcome of macular hole surgery. Current practice is divided; some individuals are advised to posture face-down for 10 days and others are advised that posturing is unnecessary. By evaluating the effect of posturing in a prospective randomised controlled trial the investigators hope to determine best practice, enabling surgeons and patients to make informed decisions regarding postoperative management.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The posture of an individual lying face up.

The posture of an individual lying face down.

A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.

A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

A macular lesion on the side of the FACE, involving the CONJUNCTIVA and EYELIDS, as well as the adjacent facial skin, SCLERA; OCULOMOTOR MUSCLES; and PERIOSTEUM. Histological features vary from those of a MONGOLIAN SPOT to those of a BLUE NEVUS.
