Arms Assigned Interventions
Sham Comparator: Vitrectomy only group
The patients who will underwent 23- gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy only.
Procedure: Vitrectomy only group
The patients who will underwent 23- gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy only. The procedure will be done under retrobulbar anesthesia.
Experimental: Combined therapy group
The patients who will underwent 23- gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy with concomitant posterior subtenon Triamcinolone acetate injection.
Procedure: Combined therapy group
The patients who will underwent 23- gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy with concomitant posterior subtenon Triamcinolone acetate injection. For the posterior subtenon Triamcinolone acetate injection injection, a 1 ml of a 40 mg/ml of triamcinolone acetonide was given in the inferotemporal quadrant using a 27-gauge needle on 3-ml syringe. The conjunctiva and the Tenon's capsule were penetrated with the bevel of the needle toward the globe. The needle was advanced toward the macular area, taking care to remain in contact with the globe until the hub was firmly pressed against the conjunctival fornix and then the corticosteroid was slowly injected.
