A visually successful outcome was achieved in one case, an anatomically successful outcome in another, and no improvement in the last. We believe that large detachments should be repaired early rather than waiting for possible spontaneous reattachment, and we advocate sulfur hexafluoride fluid-gas exchange as the procedure of choice. © Williams & Wilkins 1995.
