We reviewed 45 eyes of retinal detachment with deeply located breaks during the foregoing 5 years. Eyes with macular hole were excluded. Transscleral surgery as the initial procedure was performed in 38 eyes resulting in retinal reattachment in 24 eyes (63%) and failure in 14 eyes (37%) . The retinal break was located 18 to 24 mm, average 19.8 mm, posterior to the sclera in the attached eyes and 17 to 24 mm, average 21.6 mm, in the nonattached eyes. Nonat-tachment in the 14 eyes was due to new tear formation 1 eye and retinal traction 3 eyes. In 5 of the remaining 8 eyes, the retinal break was located deeper than 20 mm from the limbus. Final reattachment was obtained in all the eyes. The findings show that vitreous surgery is to be preferred to transscleral surgery when the posterior edge of retinal break is located deeper than 20 mm from the limbus.
