The Pattern and Distribution of Retinal Breaks in Eyes With Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To identify which presenting features of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) suggest the presence of multiple retinal breaks and to ascertain relevant patterns in retinal break location.Design: Observational single-center case series.Methods: We collected data from 851 eyes undergoing surgery for RRD between January 2001 and September 2011. Data recorded included patient demographics; extent of RRD; and the size, location, and number of retinal breaks. Statistical regression was used to identify risk factors for the presence of multiple breaks and to analyze patterns in break location.Results: Of 851 patients, 7 patients were excluded because of insufficient data. Of 844 patients analyzed, (Read more...)
