Do Not Underestimate PFV



This video demonstrates an unnoticed problem in anterior PFV cases: elongation of the peripheral retina across pars plicata till the equator of the lens. This elongated retina is sometimes continuous with the fibrovascular membrane at the back of the lens. This anatomical variation may cause some retinal complications like RRD during surgery. When you excise the fibrovascular membrane totally, you may end up with peripheral retinotomy in those elongation areas. Or if you use pars plicata entry, you may end up with retinal breaks if the sclerotomy is in these elongation sites. Standard vitreoretinal surgery with posterior hyaloidal separation usually saves the retina. This video will demonstrate retinal elongation beyond ora serrata very clearly.
