A genetic case-control study confirms the implication of SMAD7 and TNF locus in the development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) is still the major cause of failure of retinal detachment (RD) surgery and although the risk for developing this complication is associated with some clinical characteristics, the correlation is far from absolute, raising the possibility of genetic susceptibility. The objective of this study was to analyze the genetic contribution to PVR in patients undergoing RD surgery, the Retina 4 Project. METHODS: A candidate gene association study was cond...
