retinal separation associated with a break, a hole, or a tear in the sensory retina.

rhegmatogenous retinal detachment

a separation of the retina associated with a hole, break, or tear in the sensory layer of the retina. The detachment occurs secondary to the passage of vitreous fluid through the break.

rheg·ma·tog·e·nous ret·i·nal de·tach·ment

(reg'mă-toj'ĕ-nŭs ret'i-năl dĕ-tach'mĕnt)
An ocular insult or trauma in which a tear, hole, or rent appears in the retina that leaks fluid through the opening and thus dissects the retina from the underlying pigment epithelium.

Methods: One hundred and three eyes of one hundred and three patients, who underwent three ports parsplana vitrectomy + band + silicone oil, three ports pars plana vitrectomy + silicone oil, three ports pars plana vitrectomy + C3F8 for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair, at Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre, were included in this observational prospective study.
Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment (RRD) is the separation of neurosensory retina from retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in associationwith accumulation of sub retinal fluid (SRF) in the presence of one or more retinal breaks.
Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) occurs when a retinal break allows vitreous fluid to access subretinal space and thus separates the retina from the RPE.
