Central Retinal Artery Occlusion During Vitrectomy: Immediate Retinal Revascularization Following Induction of Posterior Vitreous Detachment

ABSTRACT Purpose: To describe a patient with acute central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) during vitrectomy surgery and the possible role of vitrectomy in acute CRAO management. Methods: An 84-year-old man presented with broad vitreomacular traction and epiretinal membrane in the right eye. Preoperative assessment clearly showed normal retinal vasculature. On starting vitrectomy, complete CRAO with marked segmentation of all retinal...
