Aim:To evaluate the outcomes and complications of 23-gauge (G) pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for repair of retinal detachment (RD). Method:Retrospective review of consecutive, single-surgeon 23-G PPV cases between January 2017 and December 2017. 117 eyes from 117 patients were operated on for RD all eyes were tamponaded with , silicone oil,Air. Mean age at surgery was 48.69 years (range 8-75 years), and mean length of follow-up was 5 weeks (range2weeks — 32 weeks). Primaryoutcomesincludedbest-correctedvisualacuity(BCVA),intraocular pressure (IOP), anatomic success, redetachment, andendophthalmitis. Result:We included 117 consecutive patients (117eyes).Males and females are equal . The average age was 48,69 years(range 8-75), The primary success rate with a single procedure was 98%. However, redetachment occurred in two eyes only (1.7%). Visual acuity was improve in 89.74% of the eyes. Mean IOP increased from 11.16 to 12.58mm Hg aftersurgery. ElevatedpostoperativeIOP(>22mmHg)occurredin10eyes,andnolowIOP There were no cases of endophthalmitis .The average follow-up periodfor all patients was 2weeks (range 2-32 weeks) Conclusion:Twenty-three-G PPV repair was safe and effective in the repair of RD.
