Abstract Details


PEDs with CSR have been reported in various studies from all over the world. Relationship of PED in CSR is important to shed some light on patho- physiology of the disease. Asia being the most prevalent region of CSR, data from this region becomes key to understand the disease physiology. To the best of our knowledge none of the study had compared CSR with and without PED. Purpose of this paper is to highlight impact of PED on neurosensory detachment (NSD) and other epidemiological data associated with CSR.


Lotus Eye Care Hospital and Institute, Coimbatore, TN, India


SD-OCT in 3 dimensional mode was performed at macular region. Maximum height of NSD was measured on 3D scan using inbuilt calliper. Group 1 was defined as CSR with PED and Group 2 was defined as CSR without PED. Statistical analysis was done with excel 2007 data analysis tool.


140 eyes of 134 patients during year of 2010- 2013 were examined retrospectively. Group 1 had 85 eyes (60.71%) compared to 55 eyes (39.28%) in group 2. Gender ratio (M:F) in group 1 was 5.5:1 whereas it was 5:1 in group 2. Mean age of patients in group 1 was 45.5yr (SD 8.3) whereas it was 42.8yr (SD 8.1) in group 2 (P=0.06). Mean of max NSD height in group 1 was 344.1mm (SD177.4) compared to 315.3mm (SD 170.1) in group 2 (P=0.34). Intraretinal fluid tunnel was seen in 34.11% patient in group 1 while it was not found in any of the patient in group 2.


These findings suggest that presence of PED with in neurosensory detachment does not have any effect on the amount of fluid height in CSR. Cases with PED have more fluid tunnels within the retina which might have an effect of speed of disease resolution. ( Described by us in last EuRetina Congress at Hamburg).
