Abstract

Purpose: : Knowledge of predisposing factors to retinal detachments in certain patient populations can guide surgical planning.

Methods: : This is a retrospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. A review of 166 patients (203 eyes) who underwent Boston Keratoprosthesis implantation at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary from 1993 to 2008 was performed. Most patients had very advanced ocular disease. Predisposing factors to retinal detachment were investigated. Anatomical and visual outcomes of retinal detachment repair were analyzed. Details of timing after surgery will be presented.

Results: : See Table 1.Eighty-nine (89%) of patients with retinal detachments have visual outcomes of less than 20/200 despite surgical repair.

Keywords: retinal detachment • keratoprostheses • clinical (human) or epidemiologic studies: risk factor assessment
