Design A retrospective noncomparative interventional clinical case series was performed between 2009 and 2012. Patients and methods Fourteen eyes of 14 young patients with chronic inferior rhegmatogenus retinal detachment showing focal proliferative vitreoretinopathy, subretinal bands, demarcation line, and inferior retinal breaks were managed with a segmental circumferential inferior 180 silicone tire and a 360 encircling circumferential band. Results Anatomical success was achieved in 13 eyes (92.86%), improved vision in nine eyes (64.29%), and stationary vision in five eyes (35.71%). Conclusion Scleral buckling proved safe and effective in the management of long-standing rhegmatogenous retinal detachment in a juvenile age group with subretinal fibrosis and focal surface proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
