Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose:To know whether surgical outcome for ROP is influenced by the modality of retinal coagulation at active stage. Methods: 242 eyes underwent vitrectomy for Stage 5 ROP was retrospectively reviewed. Results:76 eyes had been treated by cryocoagulation (CRYO) before development of retinal detachment, 119 eyes by photocoagulation (PHC) and 47 eyes by both. A favorable retinal reattachment was observed on 39 eyes treated by CRYO, 48 eyes by PHC and 24 eyes by both following vitrectomy. No significant difference among three groups (p= 0.319: Fisher direct) was found. Conclusions: Choice of either CRYO or PHC for active ROP does not influence on late surgical outcome.
