[Reasons for readmission to hospital after vitreoretinal surgery: 5-year retrospective follow-up]

Abstract : INTRODUCTION: To study the etiologies and occurrence rate of readmissions after vitreoretinal surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS: One hundred fifty-three eyes requiring vitreoretinal surgery in 2000 at the Besançon (France) University Hospital were retrospectively studied. The occurrence rate and etiologies of these readmissions and the time between surgery and readmission were analyzed from the patient files. RESULTS: The main indications for vitreoretinal surgery were retinal detachment, epiretinal membrane surgery, idiopathic macular holes, neovascular retrovascular membranes, and intravitreal hemorrhage. A total of 40.5% of the patients were readmitted. The major causes were redetachment and cataract for retinal detachment surgery and cataract for epiretinal membrane and macular hole surgeries. CONCLUSION: The results highlight the possibly iatrogenic association between anterior and posterior eye segment surgeries, in agreement with the literature.
