Abstract

Pneumatic retinopexy is a new procedure that is effective in treating the uncomplicated cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachments. The procedure of pneumatic retinopexy is composed of cryotherapy(photocoagulation), intraocular gas injection and postoperative positioning. The advantages of this procedure are less tissue damage, no hospitalization, reduced expense and minimal complication. For these reasons, this procedure has become popular retinal detachment surgeons. Peports of associated complications are still limited. The authors experienced one case of choroidal detachment after intraocular gas(SF6 gas) injection in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in pseudophakic eye.
