To treat and prevent postoperative complications with implantation of intraocular bio balloon after vitrectomy in aphakic and pseudophakic eyes with macular hole in retinal detachment.


After vitrectomy the spatial syringe with gas or BSS (Fig 1A) with fixed bio balloon on it (v.4-6 mm) (fig 2A) injected through the ora serrata into the vitreous cavity (fig 3A). Then we filled the bio bubble with gas or (N-saline) up to the normal pressure (fig 4A) and fixed it on the sclera (fig 5A) upon total retinal attachment. Bio balloon has properties similar to silicon balloon and will be observed for 4-6 months. It does not need to be removed after surgery. Result: injection of bio material bubble (trimethyle carbonate) (v.4-6mm) with gas or normal saline in the vitreous cavity creates conditions that gas or liquid dose not create A-Does not get to the anterior chamber and contact with the corneal epithelial layer B-to vessels D-gas or BSS does not get through valves, and holes behind the retina. E-interferes to penetration of gas or…Into the ciliary body and prevents closing of a space for circulation of liquid regulating IOP and prevents closing canal of Schelmm. It prevents postoperative complications, and does not need repeated operations.

Effectiveness / Safety:

This method provides total retinal attachment, prevents postoperative complication, and avoids repeating operations.
