Managing Giant Retinal Tears 2 Cases Report

Managing Giant Retinal Tears 2 Cases Report ABSTRACT Introduction: Retinal detachments with giant retinal tears (GRT) pose a significant challenge, even to the most experienced vitreoretinal specialists. The extent of the primary lesion complicates management and tamponade choices, carrying the risk of the flap folding over post-operatively and re-detaching the retina. The authors present two cases of a retinal detachment with giant...
