Reduction in Other Non Macular Complications Limiting Either Anatomic Retinal Reattachment or Normal Physiological Function

Well-known complications of retinal reattachment surgery include alterations in the intraocular pressure, both glaucoma and hypotony, postoperative inflammation, cataract, motility disorders, and PVR. Pharmacological therapy, both intraoperatively as well as postoperatively, may play a role in the reduction of several of these complications, either singly or in combination. The remainder of this chapter is devoted to a discussion of the principal cause of retinal reattachment failure after primary surgery, PVR, and the methods by which pharmacological therapy might favorably influence this condition.
