Objective: To evaluate the anatomical and visual outcome of surgical management of retinal detachment associated with chorio-retinal coloboma.
Study Design: Prospective interventional case series
Place and Duration of Study: This study was conducted at Al-Shifa Trust Eye Hospital Rawalpindi from Jan 2012 to Dec 2013.
Material and Methods: Twenty one eyes (21 patients) that underwent surgery for retinal detachment associated with chorio-retinal colobomas were selected. Evaluation was done on the basis of type of intervention, final visual acuity and anatomical outcome and complications. Out of 21, 19(90.47%) eyes underwent pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil (SO) and 2(9.52%) underwent primary scleral buckling surgery. SO was removed in 9 (47.36%) eyes at final follow up. Encircling band was placed in 12 (63.15%) eyes based on peroperative judgment of surgeon. Intra-operative lensectomy was performed in 6 (28.57%) eyes. The main outcome measures were retinal re-attachment and visual recovery. Statistical analysis was performed using "IBM statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) Statistics" (version 17.0, Chicago, Illinois, USA). Qualitative variables were described using percentage; quantitative data were defined using mean standard deviation. The pre op and post op frequency of best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was compared using Wilcoxan Signed Ranks Test. Confidence interval was 95% (level of significance p
