SUMMARY

The authors analise the results of pneumatic retinopexy in 23 eyes of 23 patients, as well as its complications and indications. They compare the efficacy of the procedure in a group of patients who fullfilled the criteria of indication inicially proposed for the method (Group I) to a group where the indication was not classical (Group II). They conclude that pneumatic retinopexy is a highly efficient procedure in well indicated cases (90% of success in Group I) and suggest precaution in patients with a long history, with vitreo retinal proliferation, or who present ruptures in the inferior retina.
