Abstract

Purpose : Establish retinal detachment frecuency in patients who underwent cataract surgery and demographic data.

Methods : A retrospective analysis. We reviewed 3000 clinical files of patients who underwent cataract surgery from 01/01/2012 to 01/01/2014. Most of the patients studied were not operated in our center, they were refered to resolve the complication. Demographic data was included such as age, gender , time of presentation, surgical technique used, and type of retinal detachment. Incomplete files were excluded.

Results : Median age at presentation was 60 years of age (range 38- 82). 50 male (41%) and 70 female (58%). There was no diference between the eye affected. 104 (86%) underwent phacoemulsification and 16 (13%) extracapsular cataract extraction. 96 (80%) presented a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, 20 (16.6%) a tractional retinal detachment and 4 (3.3%) a total retinal detachment. Median time of presentation was 10.4 months.

Conclusions : Retinal detachment is a complication of cataract surgery. In our group of study we found a frequency of 4%, which is higher than what was reported in other previous studies. Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment was the more frequent type of complication. Most of our cases were diagnosed in the first year after the procedure, which difers with other reports in the literature.
