    Real-Time In Vivo Assessment of Retinal Reattachment in Humans using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose To assess the in vivo physiology of retinal reattachment in humans using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) in real-time. Design Prospective case series. Methods Fifteen consecutive patients with fovea-involving rhegmatogenous retinal detachment undergoing pneumatic retinopexy (PnR). SS-OCT was performed at presentation and frequent intervals immediately following PnR. Primary outcome was longitudinal assessment of early post-operative SS-OCT to establish stages of reattachment. Results 93.3% (14/15) achieved successful reattachment at the median follow-up duration of 13 weeks (IQR 7.5-18.0). Reattachment occurred in five specific stages: Stage 1, redistribution of fluid and approach of the neurosensory retina towards ...
