Transvitreal cyanoacrylate retinopexy in the management of complicated retinal detachment.

Published

Journal Article

We used transvitreally delivered cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive to seal retinal breaks in 25 selected patients undergoing vitreous surgery for complicated retinal detachment. With a minimum follow-up period of six months, all but one retinal hole remained closed. Complete retinal reattachment posterior to the encircling buckle was achieved in 18 of 25 eyes (72%). In ten of 25 eyes (40%) the final visual acuity was 5/200 or better.
