Changing Concepts in the Surgical Repair of Primary Retinal Detachment (Part 2): Comparison of Four Current Surgical Techniques for Repair of Primary Retinal Detachments
The second part of this literature review deals with the comparison of two intraocular (pneumatic retinopexy and primary vitrectomy) and two extraocular (segmental sponge buckle without drainage, i.e. minimal extraocular surgery and the temporary balloon operation) procedures used to seal off the leaking break in primary retinal detachments. The outcomes, rate of complications and reoperations will be compared among these procedures.
