Abstract Details


To evaluate the functional and anatomical outcome of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD)


Jakarta Eye Centre, Indonesia


In this descriptive restrospective study, we analyzed 211 RRD patients who had undergone PPV between 2011 and 2015. All patients were evaluated pre-surgery, 3, and 6 months after surgery. Pre- and postoperative visual acuity (VA), intraocular pressure (IOP), and re-attachment success rate were reviewed


The mean visual acuity was improved from 0.8 LogMAR to 0.5 LogMAR at 6 months follow up. Silicon oil was used as a tamponade in 192 eyes and gas in 19 eyes. No significant difference in functional outcome between gas and silicon oil tamponade. Mean IOP was increased from 11.03 mmHg to 13.36 mmHg and the pressure with silicon oil was significantly higher compared to gas tamponade. The overall primary re-attachment rate was 88.63% with the final anatomical success rate was 100%. Patients who had undergone combination of PPV and scleral buckling (SB) has lower re-detachment rate compared to PPV alone


This study concludes that PPV is an effective procedure in primary RRD either in the functional and anatomical outcome
