A frequent cause for retinal detachment occur-ring in open globe injuries is retinal incarceration. The boundary between which cases are operable and which are not has been moved forward as new surgical tech-niques and materials have become available through the years. Aim of this video is to illustrate some of these concepts as we consider a first case in which the boundary of operability has been stretched forward and a second case in which there is a happy ending for a severe injury.
