Objective To observe the changes of ciliary body after scleral buckling surgery by Ultrasound
Ciliary body thickness and anterior chamber depth(ACD) in 22 patients who suffered
from the rhegmatogenous retinal detachment(RD) were measured before and 3,7,15, 28 days
and 3 months after the procedure. Ultrasound biomicroscopy was used to evaluate ACD and
ciliary body thickness.
The surgery caused significant increases in ciliary body thickness at 3,7,15,and 28 days
postoperatively(P <0.01). Ciliary body edema reached its peak at 3 days after surgery, followed
by a gradual decrease there after.Ciliary body thickness in the encimling group was statistically
greater than in the segmental buckling group at 3 and 7 days postoperatively(P <0.01)
: subclinical ciliary edema existed in all directions of all eyes for at least 1 month
after the scleral buckling procedure. The ciliary body in the direction of scleral buckling showed
greater edema than the other areas.
