Failed Treatment of Retinal Detachment
This chapter serves primarily as a guide to the causative pathology and the secondary disturbances which are encountered when an enucleated eye is submitted with a clinical history of “Retinal detachment — treatment unsuccessful”. With technical advancement and a more aggressive surgical approach to trauma and diabetes, such specimens, although rare, are being submitted more frequently than in the past and will also be available via the Autopsy Service. In addition, clinicopathological correlation is more significant in view of the development of new techniques (for a comprehensive review see Glaser and Michels 1989).
