INTRODUCTION: Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is caused by a tear in the retina and is a frequent cause of vision loss. Its treatment is mainly surgical and the following alternatives can be identified: scleral buckling or classic surgery, pneumatic retinopexy and vitrectomy. Between the first two options, most professionals prefer scleral buckling over pneumatic retinopexy, but the latter is a simpler, cheaper and lower-risk procedure, so it is still considered as an option for selected patients...

PURPOSE: To report early formation and spontaneous closure of a full-thickness macular hole that developed after successful pneumatic retinopexy in a patient who had been undergoing treatment for diabetic macular edema. METHODS: Case report of a 68-year-old man with bilateral nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy who was currently undergoing anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment for bilateral diabetic macular edema. RESULTS: On presentation, visual acuity was 20/200 in the left eye, and examination revealed a bullous, macula-off retinal detachment with a single horseshoe tear at 12 o'clock in the left eye...

REVIEW
Stephen Stewart, Wing Chan
Pneumatic retinopexy is a minimally invasive, non-incisional procedure for repairing retinal detachment. This procedure is associated with reduced morbidity, reduced cost and faster postoperative recovery compared to pars plana vitrectomy and scleral buckling. Superior visual acuity outcomes have also been reported. Intraoperative complications are primarily related to the intraocular pressure rise caused by gas injection, or the misdirection of the gas. There is a low rate of postoperative complications. Anatomic success rates of over 90% can be achieved when strict selection criteria are applied...

Purpose: To report the outcomes of pneumatic retinopexy (PR) performed as a primary surgical procedure for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) or as a secondary procedure for recurrent RRD. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed case records of 54 patients (54 eyes) who underwent PR for RRD by injecting 0.3 ml of perfluoropropane (C3F8) in the vitreous cavity and cryopexy to break in the same sitting, followed by positioning. Results: A total 54 eyes of 54 patients aged between 17 and 84 years (mean - 51...

PURPOSE: To determine the concentrations of different gas tamponades in air to achieve 100% fill of the vitreous cavity postoperatively and to examine the influence of eye volume on these concentrations. METHODS: A mathematical model of the mass transfer dynamics of tamponade and blood gases (O2, N2, and CO2) when injected into the eye was used. Mass transfer surface areas were calculated from published anatomical data. The model has been calibrated from published volumetric decay and composition results for three gases sulphahexafluoride (SF6), hexafluoroethane (C2F6), or perfluoropropane (C3F8)...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the anatomical and visual outcomes of patients who underwent pneumatic retinopexy by vitreoretinal fellows. METHODS: We included 198 eyes (198 patients) that underwent pneumatic retinopexy by vitreoretinal fellows at a single academic institution between November 2002 and June 2016. Main outcomes were single-operation success and final anatomical success in retinal reattachment, as well as visual acuity at 3 months and 6 months after treatment...

Objective To evaluate the efficacy of maximal pneumatic retinopexy (PR) and subretinal fluid (SRF) drainage combined with scleral buckling (SB) in the treatment of complicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). Methods Patients with RRD who underwent maximal PR and SRF drainage combined with SB from June 2007 to June 2012 were included in this multicenter retrospective study. The outcome measures were the primary and final operation success rates and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA). Results In total, 159 consecutive patients were included...

Existing surgical modes for retinal detachment are elaborate and extremely complex. We have treated 20 cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with pneumatic retinopexy which is Iess time consuming and does not require hospitalization. After pneumatic retinopexy reattachment of retina was achieved in 15 (75%) eyes. In 2 eyes retinal reattachment was achieved after repeating intravitreal injection of sulphur hexafluoride gas. Remaining 3 eyes were secondarily treated with scleral buckle surgery. One case needed vitreoretinal surgery...

REVIEW
Maria H Berrocal, Megan L Chenworth, Luis A Acaba
Giant retinal tears (GRTs) are full-thickness circumferential tears of more than 90 degrees of the retina that are associated with vitreous detachment. They are related to ocular trauma, high myopia, aphakia, pseudophakia, genetic mutations involving collagen and young age. GRTs comprise 1.5% of all rhegmatogenous retinal detachments and the average age of incidence is 42 years. GRTs are more common in males, as 72% of all cases occur in males. The incidence of GRTs in the general population is estimated to be 0...

Retinal detachment is the separation of the sensory retina from the retinal pigment epithelium by subretinal fluid. There are several types of retinal re-attachment surgery, including scleral buckling (SB), pneumatic retinopexy, and vitrectomy (with or without SB). The objective of this study was to compare anatomical and visual outcomes between patients with pseudophakic rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) who underwent pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with silicone oil (SO) or perfluoropropane (C3F8) gas tamponade and pseudophakic RRD patients who underwent SB surgery...

PURPOSE: To describe the clinical and optical coherence tomography findings associated with the development of full-thickness macular holes after rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. METHODS: Retrospective, interventional case series. All patients who developed full-thickness macular holes after successful RRD repair from 3 clinical practices were reviewed. All cases of combined/simultaneous full-thickness macular hole and RRD were excluded. The main outcome measure was the presence of an epiretinal membrane at time of diagnosis of macular hole...

PURPOSE: To identify the characteristics predictive of unfavorable outcomes for pneumatic retinopexy (PR) in the repair of pseudophakic rhegmatogenous retinal detachments (RD). METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed at a single institution to identify patients who underwent PR in pseudophakic eyes. Pre- and postoperative data were reviewed and analyzed to evaluate predictive factors of failure. RESULTS: Forty-four patients met the study criteria...
