Abstract

We report a 24-year-old man with Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) syndrome who developed a macular hole (MH) during the acute inflammatory stage. Spontaneous resolution was unlikely because of the MH dimensions and absence of vitreous adherence. The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and internal limiting membrane peeling during the acute stage followed by retinopexy with octafluoropropane injection and prone positioning for 5 days. The MH closed and the best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) improved from 20/400 to 20/40. Prompt surgical intervention may be an alternative for treating MHs and obtaining visual recovery in special cases even in the acute inflammatory stage.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 01 December 2015.
All research outputs
#4,663,399
of 6,632,903 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Retina and Vitreous
#6
of 29 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#134,838
of 210,654 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Retina and Vitreous
#2
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,632,903 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 29 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.6. This one scored the same or higher as 23 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 210,654 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 8 of them.
