Surgical Techniques of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment and Complications After Surgeries
The main surgical procedures for the reattachment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) are scleral buckling and vitrectomy. Pneumatic retinopexy and Lincoff balloon are not widely used today. Cryopexy and photocoagulation may sometime be selected for very localized, peripheral RRD. No matter which method is chosen, the key procedures are sealing retinal breaks and relief of vitreous traction. Therefore, a thorough evaluation of the location of the retinal breaks and vitreous status is crucial before the surgery.
