Abstract

Pseudophacik Retinal Detachment is a subgroup of Rhegmatogenous Retinal Retachments with some unique characteristics, such as the number and location of retinal breaks, certain intraoperative technical difficulties and possibly an increased risk of proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Recent evidence has established the role of pars plana vitrectomy as a primary method of managing these cases. The role of using scleral buckling techniques in combination with vitrectomy as well as the types of buckling that could be used remains controversial. At this talk, the above issues will be discussed in full, and a review of the literature as well as the personal experience of the speaker will attempt to clarify the role of using combined techniques in managing those cases.
