Surgical management of retinal detachment with choroidal coloboma.

PURPOSE: To verify the functional and anatomical results of retinal detachments related to choroidal coloboma. METHODS: Seven eyes with retinal detachment secondary to retinal breaks at the margin of or within a choroidal coloboma were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS: Scleral buckling was performed in five of the seven eyes; two needed additional pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with internal tamponade using silicone oil to reattach the retina. In two eyes PPV with internal tamponade using silicone oil or gas was used as a primary procedure. All seven eyes were reattached. Five eyes (71.4%) showed improvement or had visual acuity of 20/400 or better after surgery, but two remained unchanged. CONCLUSIONS: Retinal detachment secondary to choroidal coloboma can be treated successfully by scleral buckling or PPV with internal tamponade.[1]
