ABSTRACT
Objective To observe the therapeutic effect of scleral buckling procedure on old retinal detachment. Methods The clinical data of 42 patients (46 eyes), including 24 males (27 eyes) and 18 females (19 eyes), with old retinal detachment treated by scleral buckling procedure in our department were retrospectively reviewed. The duration of the disease ranged from 1 month to 2 years. All the patients were with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and combined with mainly predominantly-subretinal proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) (stage C), including stage C1 of PVR in 16 eyes (34.8%), stage C2 in 19 eyes (41.3%), and stage C3 in 11 eyes (23.9%). Scleral buckling was performed on 13 eyes (283%) and cerclage combined buckling on 33 eyes (71.7%). Sterile air was injected into 36 eyes (78.3%) during the operation, and C3F8 was introvitreal injected into 7 eyes (15.2%) after the operation. Results The follow-up duration was from 6 months to 1 year (mean 7.3 months). Retina was completely reattached in 31 eyes (67.4%), and was alleviated obviously in 12 eyes (26.1%). The subretinal fluid increased after the operation with un-reattached retina and vitrectomy was performed in 2 eyes. One eye underwent vitrectomy due to the development of PVR. After the first operation, the curative ratio of retinal detachment was 67.4%, and effective ratio (cure and alleviation) was 93.5%. The visual acuity improved in 28 eyes (60.9%), kept no change in 11 eyes (23.9%), and decreased in 7 eyes (15.2%). Conclusion Reattachment of retina and improvement of visual acuity can be achieved in some degree in some patients with old retinal detachment who undergo simple scleral buckling procedure without vitrectomy.
