How many patients do you find come to you with late retinal redetachment occurring 1 or more years after initially successful RD repair?

A New Retinal Tear. This is not a common occurrence. Most successful rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repairs stay attached. Re-detachment would be more common after repair of a diabetic traction detachment, or repair of a detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Almost always, a retina that redetaches has a new retinal tear. Best wishes.
