Abstract
PURPOSE: To identify prognostic factors for the visual outcome for patients with macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). METHODS: The medical records of 27 patients (27 eyes) with macula-off RRD were retrospectively investigated. In addition to clinical characteristics, spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD OCT) images were analyzed. RESULTS: The central foveal thickness at baseline was 923 ± 499.5 µm, and the mean height of the subretinal fluid was 697.8 ± 463.6 µm. Dropout of backreflection at the fovea was detected on preoperative SD OCT in 8 patients (29.6%). The external limiting membrane was disrupted in 5 patients (18.5%) as was the photoreceptor integrity in 9 patients (33.3%) at 12 months. On multiple regression analysis, backreflection integrity was the only predictive factor for postoperative visual outcome (B = 0.179, p = 0.020). CONCLUSIONS: Backreflection integrity on preoperative SD OCT seems to be helpful in predicting the postoperative visual outcome in macula-off RRD patients.
