The term proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) is proposed as a designation for the clinical condition previously known variously as massive vitreous retraction, massive preretinal retraction, or… Continue Reading
1,000 consecutive patients operated for retinal detachment were studied prospectively to determine the incidence of complications. Two parts of the operation were responsible for most of the… Continue Reading
Pneumatic retinopexy was compared with scleral buckling in a multicenter (7 centers), randomized, controlled, clinical trial with 198 patients. Admission criteria included detachments with retinal… Continue Reading
BACKGROUND Spontaneous bullous serous retinal detachment (RD) with subretinal exudation complicating idiopathic central serous chorioretinopathy (ICSC) is a rare and infrequently described clinical… Continue Reading
The authors report 2-year follow-up information on 179 of 198 eyes (90%) enrolled in a previously published multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing pneumatic retinopexy (PR) with… Continue Reading
The Collaborative Pneumatic Retinopexy Study evaluated retinal detachments (RDs) secondary to one break or group of breaks no larger than 1 clock hour located within the superior 8 clock hours of the… Continue Reading
One hundred and twenty-three preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative variables were evaluated to assess their effect on anatomic success of scleral buckling for retinal detachment. The… Continue Reading
We prospectively studied 51 patients with choroidal melanomas in a masked manner to determine the accuracy of clinical, ultrasound, and fluorescein diagnosis as well as the accuracy of tumor size… Continue Reading
Examines the principles and practices of retinal detachment. The book includes references for further reading and a self-study examination.
Pneumatic retinopexy (PR) is an alternative to scleral buckling for the surgical repair of selected retinal detachments. A gas bubble is injected into the vitreous cavity, and the patient is… Continue Reading
