Retinal thickening after successful surgery for macula-off retinal detachment.
Curr Eye Res. 2007 Jan; 32(1):65-9.CE

Abstract

PURPOSE

To study changes in retinal thickness after reattachment of the retina after scleral buckling surgery for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment.

METHODS

In this retrospective study, patients were classified into three subgroups according to preoperative macular status. Retinal thickness within 3 mm of the center was measured with optical coherence tomography.

RESULTS

Foveal retinal thickness at a mean of 2 years postoperatively was significantly increased in patients with preoperatively detached macula. Additionally retinal thickness in the fovea and postoperative visual acuity was positively correlated.

CONCLUSIONS

Successful surgery for macula-off retinal detachment is associated with significant thickening of the neurosensory retina when examined with optical coherence tomography 6 months postoperatively.
