Abstract

Pneumatic retinopexy was first described by Hilton in the late 1980s. it is a minimally invasive procedure that can be offered to treat localized retinal detachments with many advantages over conventional surgery. We report cases of retinal detachment, treated by pneumatic retinopexy associated with laser. The aim of this study is to describe and discuss the preoperative factors that may influence the results of pneumatic retinopexy associated with laser. A total of 12 pneumatic retinopexies combined with laser were performed to treat primary rhegmatogenous retinal. All cases had anatomical success at final follow up. This procedure may be an effective approach to treat retinal detachment with a good success rate and visual acuity recovery
