Abstract

PURPOSE: Scleral buckle (SB) removal is rarely performed due to extrusion, infection, or diplopia. We report a series of patients with recurrent retinal detachment (RRD) after primary SB due to new breaks occurring at sites where the presence of a pre-existing SB was judged counterproductive. All patients were treated by means of pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and SB removal with the sole purpose of achieving a more favorable retinal profile. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing PPV and SB removal for RRD due to new breaks occurring at sites hidden by pre-existing exoplants. RESULTS: Mean age was 52 years and VA on presentation was 20/620 and 20/216 at latest visit (p
