To report the median term outcome of retinal juvenile detachment
Retrospective review of 99 eyes of 88 patients treated in our department between 2000 and 2005.The age at the time of diagnosis, etiology, initial topography of the detachment, preoperative and postoperative visual acuity and PVR grade were recorded.
The median follow–up was 18 months and the main etiologies were traumatism (48%), high myopia (24%) and affections such as Coats disease and retinoblastoma. 62% of retinal detachment were total and 65% were associated with a severe PVR. In 35% of cases a cryo–therapy associated with a scleral buckling was realised with a success rate of 65%.The reattachment was obtained in 81% of cases after one or more surgeries.
However retinal juvenile detachment is a severe disease, progress in surgery methods allows us to improve final results.
