Open sky vitrectomy for total retinal detachment in retinopathy of prematurity.

Abstract

Open sky vitrectomy was performed on 23 eyes in 18 children between 4 and 35 months of age with stage V retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Postoperatively, the retina was reattached in the posterior pole in eight eyes (34.7%). Follow-up ranged between 7 and 55 months (average, 16 months). Prognostic factors based on preoperative findings and surgical observations are analyzed.
