Bevacizumab Against Recurrent Retinal Detachment

Bevacizumab Against Recurrent Retinal Detachment


Lead Sponsor: University of Wisconsin, Madison

Source University of Wisconsin, Madison
Brief Summary

The investigators hypothesize that bevacizumab instilled into the vitreous after primary retinal detachment surgery will reduce the formation of proliferative vitreoretinopathy and subsequent retinal re-detachment.

Label: Bevacizumab

Type: Experimental

Description: Pars plana vitrectomy will be performed in the typical manner. After laser retinopexy and prior to air-gas exchange, intravitreal bevacizumab will be administered through the trocar. Either perfluoropropane (C3F8) or sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) gas will then be administered for long-term retinal tamponade and the vitrectomy ports closed in the usual manner.

Label: Chart review

Type: No Intervention

Description: Review records over the past 5 years of patients who underwent vitrectomy for retinal detachment repair to found out the percentage of those who had re-detachment of the retina within 6 months after surgery.
