Secondary pneumatic retinopexy for failed scleral buckle.
BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(8)BC

Abstract

Scleral buckle (SB) is a well-established modality to treat retinal detachment (RD). The surgery can fail because of various reasons. This case highlights the role of secondary pneumatic retinopexy (PR) for dealing with recurrent RD after SB surgery. This modality of treatment could be explored before taking up patients for vitrectomy, especially in cases of retinal break without proliferative vitreoretinopathy. In the case presented, secondary PR could save another major surgery and good outcome was achieved with less invasive option.
