Abstract: A uniform conventional technique, modified by Dr. Zivojnovic, was performed on 104 consecutive patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachments including pseudophakic eyes (23.1%) and cases with preoperative proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) A-C2 (21.2%). A prospective study of 59 variables in 104 cases shows the risk factors influencing the results after a minimum follow-up (F.U.) according to multivariate analysis: preoperative detached macula, vitreous loss during previous cataract surgery and duration of detachment. The anatomic (94.2% reattachment after external surgery) and functional results (69.2% V.A. > or = 0.5) are discussed as well as the complications.
