29 G Endoillumination Assisted Scleral Buckling Using New Illuminated Indenter-marker

The authors declare potential conflict of interest regarding the new design of the instrument. Purpose: To report a 29 gauge endoillumination assisted scleral buckling technique for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) using a new illuminated indenter-marker and non-contact wide-angle viewing system. Methods: Nine consecutive cases with RRD underwent 29 gauge endoillumination assisted scleral buckling using a new instrument, illuminated...

My Experience with PTFE Explants in the Last 15 Years (189 cases)

Expanded PTFE (e-PTFE) is a material derived from goretex, that has been used since the seventies for vascular surgery. Afterwards its utility was expanded to reconstructive and plastic surgery, and in the ophthalmological field  to oculoplastics, corneal surgery and scleral buckling. It is a smooth surfaced, resistant, permeable and highly biocompatible material that can be used as buckling element. In addition it is non elastic and...

When 360° Scleral Buckling Saves Visual Acuity of Our Patients on the Long-term

Introduction: The 360° scleral buckling is a surgical technique that keeps an important place in our practice. Indeed, for recurrent complicated retinal detachments with a grade D of proliferative vitreoretinopathy after vitrectomy and scleral buckling of one or more quadrants, we are often forced to practice a retinectomy associated with injection of silicone oil forever. But another way exists… Settings: 360° scleral buckling avoid...

External Surgery: A Simple Solution for First Hand Procedures Failures

Since the development of Ab interno surgery in the 2000s, surgeons have more surgical options for the treatment of retinal detachment (RD). While being currently set aside, ab externo scleral buckle (SB) surgery, still has a place for certain cases of RD. With or without pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), SB is also a useful option for surgical failures after PPV. Using surgical videos, I will illustrate SB surgery for RD with the objective of...

Scleral Buckling, Vitrectomy and Pneumatic Retinopexy: An Individualised Approach by Indication and Based on Evidence

The surgical approach to repairing retinal detachment (RD) has been a success story since Jules Gonin identified the retinal breaks to be the cause of retinal detachment. The techniques however have evolved over the years. Three techniques in particular, namely scleral buckling (SB), pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and pneumatic retinopexy (PR), have been proved to be most successful and are therefore used around the world by almost all...
