Abstract

Laser photocoagulation was performed around a detached retina in 4 patients who developed localized retinal detachment after successful scleral buckling. The range of retinal redetachment in all 4 patients was no larger than that of the initial retinal detachment and did not go over the vascular arcade. No evidence of vitreous traction or proliferative vitreo-retinopathy was observed in these cases. Laser photocoagulation was performed in 3 lines of gray-white burn around the detached retina. Retinal attachment occurred between 4 and 14 days of laser treatment in all cases. No procedure related complications were seen. Laser photocoagulation may be an alternative procedure for the treatment of redetached retina with little and shallow detachment, before considering resurgery.
