2010-12: Epidemiologie van rhegmatogene ablatio retinae in Rotterdam van 2002 – 2011
Rhegmatogene retinal detachment is a common emergency eye disease emergency. The literature describes an annual incidence of 1 in 10,000 to 6.3 to 17.9 per 100,000. In particular, in late detection and / or treatment, depending on the macula status, this condition can lead to severe loss of vision. In Western countries, the proportion of patients with a detached macula is40 to 60%. The purpose of this study is to establish a number of epidemiological, and possible predictive factors for the development of retinal detachment and the incidence of bilaterality and PVR over the period 2003 until 2010.
Data of this study are included in the Dutch Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Study Group
