Does the morphologic stage of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment affect postoperative retinal recovery?

Summary:

– The study aimed to evaluate outer retinal recovery on postoperative optical coherence tomography (OCT) based on the presenting morphologic stage of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD).
– Retrospective analysis of 351 patients with fovea-involving RRDs.
– Increasing baseline morphologic stage of RRD was significantly associated with external limiting membrane, ellipsoid zone, and interdigitation zone discontinuity at all postoperative time points.
– Earlier stages of RRD were associated with residual subfoveal fluid.
– Late stages of RRD presented with earlier development of epiretinal membrane.
– The study suggests that the morphologic stages of RRD may serve as a prognostic biomarker for postoperative photoreceptor recovery.
