PURPOSE: Evaluate the impact of time to surgery and other clinical factors on visual and anatomic outcomes following surgical repair of fovea-sparing rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD). METHODS: Visual and anatomic outcomes were analyzed for their association with clinical factors, including lens status, preoperative visual acuity (VA), contralateral RRD, RRD symptom duration, time to surgery, single-operation anatomic success, number of quadrants involved, posterior RRD extent, RRD extent closest to the fovea, number of retinal breaks, quadrants with retinal breaks, and surgery performed Saturday or Sunday versus Monday-Friday...

PURPOSE: To compare secondary pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) after failed pneumatic retinopexy (PR) (Group 1) with primary PPV (Group 2) for repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD), with respect to single-procedure reattachment rate and visual outcome. METHODS: A consecutive series of RRD patients treated with PPV following failed PR (n=42) were compared with a selected group of RRD patients who were initially treated with PPV (n=29) with a similar location and distribution of retinal breaks...

PURPOSE: The optimal surgical intervention to repair certain common configurations of uncomplicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) is unknown. The purpose of this trial was to compare outcomes of pneumatic retinopexy (PnR) versus pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for the management of primary RRD. DESIGN: Prospective randomized controlled trial. PARTICIPANTS: Patients with RRD presenting with a single retinal break, or group of breaks within one clock hour, above the 8 and 4 o'clock meridians...

PURPOSE: To evaluate a new approach of sequential pneumatic retinopexies for the management of inferior rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RD) with inferior breaks. METHODS: Multicenter retrospective consecutive case series of inferior RDs caused by retinal breaks located within the inferior 4 clock hours treated with sequential pneumatic retinopexies, 24 to 48 hours apart. A total of 26 patients with inferior RDs secondary to one or more breaks between the 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock meridians were included from September 2007 to February 2012...

INTRODUCTION: Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is caused by a tear in the retina and is a frequent cause of vision loss. Its treatment is mainly surgical and the following alternatives can be identified: scleral buckling or classic surgery, pneumatic retinopexy and vitrectomy. Between the first two options, most professionals prefer scleral buckling over pneumatic retinopexy, but the latter is a simpler, cheaper and lower-risk procedure, so it is still considered as an option for selected patients...

DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Administrative claims for beneficiaries in a large nationwide managed-care network, including Medicare Advantage, employer-sponsored, or commercial insurance. POPULATION: Beneficiaries undergoing RRD primary repair procedures...

PURPOSE: To report a minimally invasive drainage technique for large expanding subretinal gas bubble and conduct a review of the literature. METHODS: Case report, with schematic diagrams and multimodal imaging including fundus photography and spectral domain optical coherence tomography. Controlled drainage of large subretinal gas bubble using a 30-gauge needle introduced through cryotherapy-treated area in office-based setting. RESULTS: Forty-year-old male patient presented with bullous rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and had gas inadvertently injected into the subretinal space during cryo-pneumatic retinopexy...

PURPOSE: To report early formation and spontaneous closure of a full-thickness macular hole that developed after successful pneumatic retinopexy in a patient who had been undergoing treatment for diabetic macular edema. METHODS: Case report of a 68-year-old man with bilateral nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy who was currently undergoing anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment for bilateral diabetic macular edema. RESULTS: On presentation, visual acuity was 20/200 in the left eye, and examination revealed a bullous, macula-off retinal detachment with a single horseshoe tear at 12 o'clock in the left eye...

Pneumatic retinopexy is a minimally invasive, non-incisional procedure for repairing retinal detachment. This procedure is associated with reduced morbidity, reduced cost and faster postoperative recovery compared to pars plana vitrectomy and scleral buckling. Superior visual acuity outcomes have also been reported. Intraoperative complications are primarily related to the intraocular pressure rise caused by gas injection, or the misdirection of the gas. There is a low rate of postoperative complications. Anatomic success rates of over 90% can be achieved when strict selection criteria are applied...

Purpose: To report the outcomes of pneumatic retinopexy (PR) performed as a primary surgical procedure for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) or as a secondary procedure for recurrent RRD. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed case records of 54 patients (54 eyes) who underwent PR for RRD by injecting 0.3 ml of perfluoropropane (C3F8) in the vitreous cavity and cryopexy to break in the same sitting, followed by positioning. Results: A total 54 eyes of 54 patients aged between 17 and 84 years (mean - 51...

PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to report the outcomes of pneumatic retinopexy (PR) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all patients with RRD who were managed with PR at the King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital between 2000 and 2014.

PURPOSE: To determine the concentrations of different gas tamponades in air to achieve 100% fill of the vitreous cavity postoperatively and to examine the influence of eye volume on these concentrations. METHODS: A mathematical model of the mass transfer dynamics of tamponade and blood gases (O2, N2, and CO2) when injected into the eye was used. Mass transfer surface areas were calculated from published anatomical data. The model has been calibrated from published volumetric decay and composition results for three gases sulphahexafluoride (SF6), hexafluoroethane (C2F6), or perfluoropropane (C3F8)...

Objective To evaluate the efficacy of maximal pneumatic retinopexy (PR) and subretinal fluid (SRF) drainage combined with scleral buckling (SB) in the treatment of complicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Methods Patients with RRD who underwent maximal PR and SRF drainage combined with SB from June 2007 to June 2012 were included in this multicenter retrospective study. The outcome measures were the primary and final operation success rates and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Results In total, 159 consecutive patients were included...

Existing surgical modes for retinal detachment are elaborate and extremely complex. We have treated 20 cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with pneumatic retinopexy which is Iess time consuming and does not require hospitalization. After pneumatic retinopexy reattachment of retina was achieved in 15 (75%) eyes. In 2 eyes retinal reattachment was achieved after repeating intravitreal injection of sulphur hexafluoride gas. Remaining 3 eyes were secondarily treated with scleral buckle surgery. One case needed vitreoretinal surgery...
