Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment: When You Can’t Find the Tear

Purpose: The purpose of this work is to report the injection of subretinal trypan blue to identify occult retinal breaks during vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) repair. Methods: Case report of a patient with RRD in whom the causative retinal break could not be found during surgery, even after scleral indentation. Trypan blue 0.15% was injected into the peripheral subretinal space using a 39 g cannula after injection...

Myopic Foveoschisis & ERM – A Surgical Challenge

Purpose: To report a case of myopic foveoschisis treated with 23 g pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) assisted with a lutein-based dye. Methods: We report a case of a fourty-five years old female patient who presented with decreased visual acuity and complaints of metamorphopsia on her right eye with 6 months duration. Ophthalmologic examination revealed an epiretinal membrane and foveoschisis of the right eye. She has high myopia (-20,00...

Easy Tool to Dissect Severe Posterior Pole Proliferation

Advantages: Peeling of severe fibrovascular proliferation of the posterior pole using a 25-gauge Atkinson retrobulbar needle with a bent tip and ILM forceps. This technique allows the surgeon to find a cleavage plane with an inexpensive and ‘easy to build’ tool in the absence of more sophisticated tools. Methods: The authors report the case of a 13-year-old boy with a chronic intermediate uveitis in his left eye, which underwent a...
