Preoperative PVR and postoperative PVR can develop solely in retinal detachments associated with retinal breaks related to vitreous traction (horse-shoe tears, operculated tears, crescent tears and paravascular tears of the postequatorial region). PVR never develops in retinal detachments due to retinogenic retinal breaks (atrophic holes in lattice, and oral dialysis). There are 3 independent… CONTINUE READING
