To compare anatomical, functional outcomes and complications of high-speed 25-gauge (G) pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) versus 20-G PPV for the management of primary inferior rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) associated to inferior breaks/holes. Eighty-five eyes from 85 patients with a minimum follow-up of 3 months were retrospectively evaluated. Forty-one patients underwent 25-G and 44 patients underwent 20-G PPV. All patients underwent PPV with fluid-air exchange, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6… CONTINUE READING
