January 2020 · Vol. 51, No. 1 63 partial ciliochoroidal detachment, and absence of hy- potonic maculopathy. At 30-month follow-up, IOP was between 8 mm Hg and 10 mm Hg OD. RESULTS Patient preoperative and postoperative data are shown in Table 1. In this series, four patients with an- nular CCD with CC underwent scleral buckling surgery to treat persistent hypotony that did not respond to medical treatment. Before surgery, the mean IOP was 2.5 mm Hg ± 0.5 mm Hg. After surgery, mean IOP sig- nificantly improved to 10.75 mm Hg ± 1.1 mm Hg (P = .0129). Mean preoperative BCVA was +0.50 ± 0.16 logMAR, with significant improvement to +0.15 ± 0.17 logMAR (P = .0123) (Figure 6). In one case (patient No. 4), a significant improve- ment was observed in IOP and visual acuity; however, this improvement was counteracted by a posterior sub- capsular cataract 2+ development. Ciliochoroidal detachment and cyclodialysis cleft persisted in all patients after surgery. DISCUSSION Cyclodialysis clefts are usually associated with chronic ocular hypotony. The main goal of treatment is to close the cleft to restore IOP as not only the duration of hypotony, but also the extent of cyclodialysis leads to irreversible visual loss. Surgical management is in- dicated when medical treatment of hypotony fails. The scleral buckling procedure is a widely used technique for repair of retinal detachment as well as proliferative vitreoretinopathy, and it has also been used to treat lo- calized clefts with good results. Portney et al. used a sectorial and anterior buckle to abute the ciliary body detachment from 6.30-o'clock to 11-o'clock position with previous cryotherapy in the area where the buckle was going to be placed. 11 Mandava et al. utilized a secto- rial, separate and anterior buckle to abute the cyclodi- alysis cleft at 8.30-o'clock and 9.30-o'clock, 2 mm away from the limbus. After cleft closure the scleral buckle was removed. 2 In this study, we found that IOP and BCVA signifi- cantly improved after the scleral buckle surgery with encircling band. The technique was the same as the accepted method for the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment with peripheral breaks except for drainage placement or gas bubble injection. Further- more, normalization of IOP and complete resolution of hypotonic maculopathy was observed in all patients. In a previous published study, Inukai et al. also showed successful management of hypotonic maculopathy and peripheral retinal breaks using a 360° scleral buckling. 12 Interestingly, as reported in previous studies, our pa- tients showed clinical improvement even though per- sistence of CCD and cyclodialysis cleft. 13,14 It could be hypothesized that the encircling procedure stop poste- rior displacement of suprachoroidal fluid thus reducing uveoscleral outflow. So far, these results indicate that scleral buckling surgery with an encircling band appears to be an effec- tive approach to manage persistent ocular hypotony in patients with annular CCD and cyclodialysis cleft in order to prevent irreversible ocular sequelae. Further prospective and larger studies are needed to confirm these findings. REFERENCES 1. Brubaker RF, Pederson JE. Ciliochoroidal detachment. Surv Ophthal- mol. 1983;27(5):281-289.
