Prophylactic treatment of retinal detachment and complemental treatment of retinal detachment surgery by argon laser photocoagulation



Prophylactic treatment of retinal detachment and complemental treatment of retinal detachment surgery by argon laser photocoagulation



Nippon Ganka Gakkai Zasshi 88(10): 1311-1317



Eyes (180) from 168 cases with retinal breaks and lattice degenerations of the retina were prophylactically treated with argon laser photocoagulation; in 89 eyes (87 cases) photocoagulation was supplemented to retinal detachment surgery. They were followed up from 3 mo.-4 yr and 4 mo. Of the 165 eyes prophylactically treated by argon laser photocoagulation alone, retinal detachment developed in 12 eyes (37.3%) and new retinal breaks occurred in 8 eyes (4.8%). Of the 15 eyes prophylactically treated with argon laser photocoagulation in conjunction with other procedures, new retinal breaks occurred in 2 eyes (13.3%). Of the 89 eyes complementarily treated by argon laser photocoagulation, further retinal detachment surgery was required in 20 eyes (22.5%). Whether argon laser photocoagulation is more effective than other procedures, i.e., diathermy, xenon photocoagulation and cryosurgery was not determined. Apparently, both prophylactic and complemental treatment of retinal detachment surgery, by argon laser photocoagulation should be done in selected cases.
