Of 610 penetrating keratoplasties reviewed, retinal detachments did not occur after any phakic graft, or after aphakic or combined (keratoplasty and cataract extraction) procedures unless these were associated with vitreous manipulation. A 5.4% incidence of retinal detachment occurred after keratoplasty that involved vitrectomy. The resultant detachments had a poor prognosis probably because of delayd diagnosis and difficulties in visualization. Vitreous manipulation, therefore, may be essential to graft clarity but it is hazardous.
