  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Ultrasound biomicroscope, UBM, was used in observing the ciliary body and the peripheralchoroid of 33 eyes with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment before and after surgery. Scleral encircling withexoplant was peformed in 32 eyes and radial buckling in one eye. Serous detachment of the pars plana waspresent in 2 eyes prior to surgery. Nine days after surgery, ciliary detachment was detected in 22 eyes, 67%.The ciliary detachment resolved spontaneously within two months after surgery. Postoperative shallowanterior chamber was present in 12 eyes, presumably as a result of ciliary detachment. Ophthalmoscopyshowed choroidal detachment in 3 eyes. By UBM, ciliary detachment along the whole circumference waspresent in these 3 eyes. Following features seemed to facilitate postsurgical ciliary detachment:large retinal break, extensive and pronounced scleral indentetion, and use of solid silicone material. Postsurgical ciliarydetachment would merit due attention because of its high incidence and the apparent absence of clinicalsymptoms.
