To determine the influence of the extent of scleral buckling on subfoveal choroidal thickness several months after successful surgery for macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.
Group A, 48 patients (48 consecutive eyes) who had undergone scleral buckling with encircling band surgery and Group B, 17 patients (17 consecutive eyes) who had undergone segmental scleral buckling without an encircling band to repair for unilateral rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). The subfoveal choroidal thickness was also measured in the fellow eyes (48 eyes) without any previous ocular surgery and any diseases. We compare choroidal thickness between operated and fellow eyes and between two groups.
he subfoveal choroidal thickness of eyes after scleral buckling surgery with encircling band in long-term EDI-OCT examination was significantly thicker (260,9 ± 45,8 µm, p<0.05) than in eyes after scleral buckling surgery without encircling band (228,5 ± 22,6 µm).
The subfoveal choroid thickness of eyes after scleral buckling surgery using an encircling band was significantly thicker (p=0.003) than in eyes after segmental scleral buckling without encircling band in long-term observation. The width and size of the material used in scleral buckling surgery may affect a change in the choroid circulation, and may have influence on subfoveal choroidal thickness.
