Abstract Details

Purpose:

Risk of retinal detachment following complicated and uncomplicated cataract surgery: a review of 30,188 consecutive cataract operations

Setting:

Gloucestershire NHS Foundation Trust

Methods:

Standardised data was extracted from the electronic medical records for phacoemulsification cataract procedures performed in Gloucestershire between November 2005 and February 2014. Procedures were divided in complicated and uncomplicated depending on the occurence of posterior capsule rupture.

Results:

During the study period 30,188 cataract operations were performed. Of these, 584 were complicated by PCR (1.93%) and 29604 were uncomplicated. In total, 20 eyes which had complicated cataract surgery suffered a subsequent retinal detachment (3.4%) and 102 eyes had retinal detachment after uncomplicated cataract surgery (0.34%)

Conclusions:

The rate of retinal detachment following cataract surgery complicated by PCR was 10 fold higher (3.4%) than following uncomplicated cataract surgery (0.34%)
