To evaluate clinical features and surgical outcomes of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RRD)
A retrospective observational case series of patients who underwent rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair in the university Hospital of Poitiers from January 2003 to December 2015
1080 eyes were included. The mean age was 65,4 years and mean follow up was 7 months. The percentage of patient with myopia was 58% and the rate of RRD after history of cataract surgery was 48%. 14% of patients had retinal history. The mean time between the examination and the surgery was 3,4 days. The rate of RRD with macula on was 38%. The mean period between retinal detachment after cataract surgery was 453 days.The rate of recurrence was 30,1%.The mean preoperative visual acuity was 0,2 and the mean postoperative visual acuity was 0,4. Reatachement rate was 94% and mean number of procedure was 1,93.
Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is a rare but serious ophthalmologic affection threatening vision. A clear knowledge of clinical features and surgical outcomes could improve the management of RRD
