Retinal Detachment: New Insights and Future Perspectives

This issue is now closed for submissions.

Description

Retinal detachment represents one of the most frequent reasons for vitreoretinal surgery. Therapeutical approaches have undergone a profound evolution over recent years. As a consequence, surgeons and patients have observed significant improvements in both anatomical and functional results.

Regardless of the mechanism underlying the retinal detachment (rhegmatogenous, tractive, exudative, or a combination of these), basic and clinical research efforts have been addressed to further improve postoperative visual acuity and to reduce complication rates. In fact, proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and retinal detachment recurrence still represent a surgical challenge, often making necessary additional reoperations and critically affecting both anatomical and functional prognosis. Due to the number of variables that intervene in each retinal detachment case, large-scale randomized controlled studies are difficult to perform.

Nevertheless, the aim of this Special Issue is to attract submissions relating to critical revisions of current data and innovations in the management of all types of retinal detachments. Basic science and technical research contributions are strongly encouraged, and we welcome both original research and review articles.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Retinal detachment pathophysiology
  • Outcomes, evolution, and comparison of surgical techniques for retinal detachment repair
  • Features, indications, advantages, and possible complications of vitreous substitutes
  • Preoperative and postoperative factors related to both anatomical and visual prognosis
  • Clinical features, surgical management, and outcomes of trauma-associated retinal detachment
  • Management and complications of complicated rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, exudative retinal detachments, and tractive retinal detachments
  • Management and complications of paediatric retinal detachments
  • PVR prevention and surgical management
  • Technological innovations in surgical instrumentation
  • Basic science contributions to retinal detachment understanding and repair
