 Success rates

Superior breaks group (controls)Inferior breaks group (patients)Overall data from 279 RRD cases
Primary success rates are similar in the superior and inferior breaks groups (p = 0.63).
The third column shows our overall performance for all primary RRDs at our unit (excluding PVR, giant tears, dialyses, and retinoschisis). The patients with inferior breaks represent a higher risk group when compared to our overall data.
