Advantages:

To diminish the central scotoma and to improve the visual acuity.

Methods:

Two days after an acute subretinal hemorrhage, PPV with retinotomy, drainage and SF6 tamponade was performed.

Subjectively significant diminishing of the central scotoma and improving of the visual acuity from 2/50 to 5/50 was reached. We found a reduction of the neuroretina thickness from 750 microns to 230 microns using the OCT.
