Slide 3: 

Retinal Detachment(R.D) R.D. is a separation of the sensory retina from the retinal pigment epithelium(R.P.E) by sub retinal fluid(S.R.F) Four types: 1)Rhegmatogenous or Primary R.D 2)Tractional R.D 3)Combined Tractional & Rhegmatogenous RD 4)Exudative RD

Slide 4: 

Rhegmatogenous R.D In Greek word,Rhegma meaning a rent or fissure A condition in which fluid from vitreous cavity passes through a full thickness retinal break into the sub retinal space Most common RD Affects about 1:10,000 of the population each year.

History : 

History 1851 Von Helmholtz-invented direct ophthalmoscope Coccius –first detected retinal breaks 1919Jules Gonin-first operation

Slide 6: 

Types of retinal tears

Slide 7: 

Characteristics of Rhegmatogenous RD: -presence of liquified vitreous gel -tractional forces that can precipitate a retinal break -presence of retinal break

Pathogenesis : 

Pathogenesis -decreased conc of hyaluronic acidliquification of vitreous & loss of support of collagen fiberscollapse of vitreous cavityfluid subhyloid spacePVD -vitreoretinal traction where vitreous remains attachedretinal break-horseshoe-shaped .

Predisposing conditions : 

Predisposing conditions Posterior vitreous detachment Peripheral fundus leisons Myopia Aphakia & pseudophakia Inadvertent scleral perforation Intraocular inflammation-infection Colobomas of choroid & retina Marfan’s syndrome Goldmann-favre syndrome

Clinical Features : 

Clinical Features History Age: Common age group is 40-70 years No age is bar Sex: 60 % case comprises by males RD in fellow eye

Symptoms : : 

Symptoms : Flashes of lights(Photopsia) Floaters- may be Solitary ring shaped opacity(Weiss Ring) Cobwebs Sudden shower of minute red colored or dark spots

Slide 15: 

3) localized relative loss in field of vision- cause -spread of SRF behind the equator less aware of superior than inferior field defect highly specific for localization of R.D perceived by the patient as black curtain

Slide 17: 

4) sudden painless loss of vision – in case of large or central R.D 5) Blurring of distant vision 40-45% R.D occurs in myopic patients History of trauma: (Surgical/Accidental) Surgical details a) Aphakia b) Pseudophakia with vitreous loss Ocular Trauma

Slide 18: 

History of previous ocular disease glaucoma Miotic drugs Chronic POAG more in pigment dispersion syndrome uveitis, vitreous hemorrhage, diabetic retinopathy Cytomegalovirus retinitis

Slide 19: 

History of systemic diseases eg. Diabetes, Tumors, Angiomatosis of C.N.S Sickle cell disease, Eclampsia Marfan's syndrome, Family history

Signs : 

Signs Visual Acuity less if R.D extend up to fovea 2) Confrontation test;Visual field defect 3) External examination 4) Anterior segment examination Cornea is usually clear but descemet's folds if hypotony Mild flare and cells in Anterior chamber

Slide 21: 

5) Pupillary reaction Relative afferent pupillary defect in extensive R.D 6) Posterior segment Tobacco dust in retrolental vitreous, haemorrhages

Slide 22: 

Fundus Examination a Loss of normal fundal glow b) Retinal breaks: Present in about 70% of the eyes with tobacco dust. appears as red discontinuities in the retinal surface Upper temporal quadrant is the commonest site for retinal break

Slide 23: 

Macula pigment of the macula may become more evident as a yellow colour due to intraretinal oedema or sub retinal fluid macular involvement is high in superior or temporal break or if in equatorial region

Slide 24: 

Apparent holes in macula are relatively common Macular breaks leading to R.D are common in staphyloma of high myopia or following trauma Associated retinal degenerations, Intraocular pressure-low Systemic evaluation

Breaks may be in the form of holes,tears or dialysis Shape may be variable Can locate primary break by the shape of the R.D

Slide 26: 

Shape of R.D in relation to primary break

Slide 27: 

Retinal signs depends on duration of R.D Fresh R.D Detached retina has a convex configuration, slightly opaque and corrugated appearance,undulates freely with eye movements.

Slide 28: 

loss of underlying choroidal pattern retinal blood vessels appears darker so color contrast vein and artery is less SRF extends up to ora serrata except caused by macular hole

Slide 29: 

B) Long standing retinal detachment retinal thinning secondary to atrophy secondary intraretinal cysts if more than 1 year sub retinal demarcation lines present after 3 months.

Differential diagnosis : 

Differential diagnosis Tractional R.D Symptoms Photophobia and floaters usually absent Visual field defect progressive Signs concave configuration , breaks absent SRF - shallower, seldom extends to ora serrata highest elevation at sites of vitreo-retinal traction severely reduced retinal mobility , shifting fluid absent

Slide 31: 

Slide 32: 

2) Exudative RD : Symptoms – photopsia is absent VF defects develop suddenly and progress rapidly Signs- convex configuration breaks are absent smooth surface, SRF deep, shifting fluid phenomenon present Leopard spots – in resolved RD

Slide 33: 

3) Degenerative retinoschisis : Symptoms – photopsia and floaters absent VF defects – absolute scotoma Signs – Elevation is convex, thin, smooth , relatively immobile Demarcation lines and secondary cyst absent

Slide 35: 

4) Choroidal Detachment 5)Uveal Effusion Syndrome
