Table 3 Macular hole closure rate at 1 month postoperatively

From: Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) versus perfluoropropane (C3F8) tamponade and short term face-down position for macular hole repair: a randomized prospective study

Type of tamponade Size of the macular hole
Small Medium Large Total
SF6 21 (95 %) 25 (93 %) 17 (81 %) 63 (90 %)
C3F8 25 (100 %) 22 (92 %) 23 (82 %) 70 (91 %)
Total 46 (98 %) 47 (92 %) 40 (82 %) 133 (90 %)
  1. Number and percentage of complete closure of the macular hole depending on stage and type of tamponade
  2. SF6 = sulfur hexafluoride; C3F8 = perfluoropropane; small (<250 µm), medium (>250–<400 µm), large (>400 µm)
