Single centre, retrospective trial with a follow up of two years aiming at clinical advantages, efficacy and safety of Diode Laser as treatment of retinal tears.
26 eyes with retinal tears associated with lattice degeneration, PVD, atrophic holes and localized retinal detatchment underwent Transpupillary diode laser photocoagulation. Patients were followed up to two years.
24 out of 26 eyes showed successful choriretinal adhesions. Failure was seen in tears associated with localized retinal detatchment with posterior vitreous detatchment.
Diode laser effectively produces retinopexy suitable for treatment of retinal tears not associated with localised tractional retinal detatchment.
