Abstract

Question: What is the quality of reporting of harms in randomized clinical trials (RCTs) of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) surgery?

Findings: A systematic review of RCTs in RRD surgery using the Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials Extension for Harms checklist was conducted. The median number of checklist items reported was 8 (range, 0-15), and infrequently reported criteria included distinguishing between expected and unexpected adverse events and use of a validated instrument to report adverse event severity.

Meaning: These results suggest there are key areas that need improvement in the reporting of complications of RRD surgical trials.
