To compare scleral buckling surgery for repair of primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in pkakic and pseudophakic patients.
A retrospective chart review of patients clinical records in our institution, Hospital Alemán. Patients were divided in two different lens status groups. We analyzed the anatomic and functional results.
Anatomic success was achieved in 33 of 45 (73.3%) and 10 of 17 (58.8%) eyes of phakic and pseudophakic patients that underwent scleral buckling surgery respectively. Pos surgical visual acuity was similar in both groups: 0,57 +/- 0,28 and 0,57 +/- 0,24 (decimal scale) respectively. Improvement was greater in the phakic group.
The final visual acuity was similar in both groups. There is a trend toward success in phakic patients that underwent scleral buckling surgery for retinal reattachment in comparison with pseudophakic group. Our statistics shows similar results as other reviews.
