Abstract

Importance: Pneumatic retinopexy remains attractive due to numerous advantages. Background: To provide references for improving the success of pneumatic retinopexy using only air. Design: A Single-center, retrospective study was performed on a consecutive series of patient visits in a university hospital. Participants or Samples: 72 eyes of patients with fresh primary RRDs were included if the anatomical outcomes were available at 6 months. Methods: The preoperative characteristics of patients who underwent pneumatic retinopexy for the repair of primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, from December 2017 to June 2020, were retrieved from clinical records and retrospectively analyzed. Patients were only included if anatomical outcomes were available at 6 months. Main Outcome Measures: The following preoperative characteristics were extracted from the medical records: Age; sex; duration of symptoms; refractive status; lens status; location and size of breaks; extent of the retina detachment; and the presence or absence of a visible traction of the whole gap. Results: High myopia and visible vitreous traction on retinal breaks were independent risk factors. The other preoperative characteristics had no impact on the success of PR. Conclusion and Relevance: Pneumatic retinopexy with air was a simple and inexpensive operation with less complication. If the eye had one of the two factors most predictive of failure (hyper myopia and visible traction gaping a tear), vitrectomy or scleral buckling was a better choice.
