Abstract

We report a case of macular hole (MH) formation and retinal detachment after intravitreal conbercept injection for the treatment of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to degenerative myopia. A 60-year-old woman presented with blurred vision in her left eye was diagnosed as CNV secondary to degenerative myopia. Intravitreal injection of conbercept, an anti -vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agent, was uneventfully performed in the left eye. Unfortunately, a full thickness MH and retinal detachment was found three weeks postoperatively by ophthalmoscopy and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. Vitrectomy, internal limiting membrane peeling and silicone oil tamponade were then performed, and macular retina was reattached soon after surgery. However, MH still kept open during three months' follow-up. MH is a quite rare complication of intravitreal anti- VEGF agent injection, tangential contraction secondary to CNV shrinkage and regression caused by anti-VEGF agent is proposed to be the major pathogenesis of MH formation.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. 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 24 July 2019.
All research outputs
#8,248,657
of 13,657,732 outputs
Outputs from BMC Ophthalmology
#287
of 822 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#137,359
of 246,203 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Ophthalmology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,657,732 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 822 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 61% of its peers.
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 246,203 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
