          Abstract

          Introduction: In a few types of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD), scleral buckling (SB) has a lower success, and, here, pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) is a good alternative option. This survey reviews the indications and the surgical outcome of primary PPV with internal tamponade. Patients and Methods: We reviewed 205 eyes operated by primary PPV for RRD at the Department of Ophthalmology of the Philipps University Marburg between the years 1990 and 1997. The indications of PPV were: holes greater than 90°; holes posterior to the equator; proliferative vitreoretinopathy grade C; pseudophakic status. Results: A complete reattachment of the retina after absorption of the gas or after silicone oil removal was achieved by 1 operation in 146 eyes (71.2%) and in 195 eyes (95.2%) by a second intervention. Conclusion: Although SB is the standard procedure for the treatment of RRD, complicated cases can be treated successfully with primary PPV.

          Survey of surgical indications and results of primary pars plana vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachments.

           Y Oshima (1999)
          Several surgical techniques to repair rhegmatogenous retinal detachment have been developed. Recently, both the method of reattaching the retina and of obtaining an early visual recovery are considered important factors when determining which surgical techniques to perform to treat retinal detachment.
