Stickler syndrome. Epidemiology of retinal detachment

Stickler syndrome. Epidemiology of retinal detachment

Archivos de la Sociedad Espanola de Oftalmologia 90(6): 264-268

A review was performed on all patients with Stickler syndrome that had been treated in our Centre since it was diagnosed, in order to evaluate the risk of suffering a retinal detachment (RD). A total of 14 patients, diagnosed by clinical criteria, were included. The following variables were evaluated: age, gender, ocular background, follow-up, initial and final visual acuity (VA), optical prescription, prophylactic treatment, surgery and techniques performed. The risk age to suffer a RD, as well as cataracts, was determined by using the Kaplan-Meier survival curve analysis. From a total of 5 men and 9 women, the median initial VA was 0.35, which was the same as the final VA. The median optical prescription was -9.5 D myopia. The median of follow-up was 7 years. Ocular background was 4 RD cases and 2 Lasik surgeries. The operations performed were 8 RD, 12 cataract, 2 glaucoma, 2 macular hole, and one endotropia. The median age of RD was 20 years and cataract 34 years. As regards surgical tecnique, 4 scleral buckle cases, and 4 scleral buckle+pars plana vitrectomy cases were formed. The prophylactic treatments performed were: one scleral buckle case, 4 endolaser photocoagulation, and one cryotherapy. Two of which presented with RD. In the series presented, retinal detachment in Stickler syndrome mainly occurs in the second decade of life, with cataracts mainly developing in the fourth decade.
