We reviewed the surgical outcome in 58 myopic eyes with retinal detachment due to macularhole treated by gas tamponade as the initial procedure. The retina reattached in 45% of eyes after initialsurgery and in 90% after additional procedures.Following factors were significantly involved for failureafter the initial procedure:duration of gas retention less than 8 days, localized retinal detachment withinthe posterior fundus, aphakia, myopia greater than -13 diopters, and presence of posterior staphyloma.Thelatter two factors also affected the final failure of detachment surgeries.
