Postoperative Complications (N = 802)


RD = retinal detachment

RDᵃ = without proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)

RDᵇ = with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)

An analysis of postoperative complications in patients who returned to the operating room within 90 days of surgery revealed that 94% out of a total of 802 cases performed in 2022 had no postoperative complications.
