Idea:

No need for huge retinectomy for removal of Subretinal proliferations except if extensive. Swinging Removal: I do it via a small retinotomy overlying the midpoint of the course of the Subretinal band, or the most accessible point for my instruments. I grasp the band via the retinotomy and pull it up to form a loop, then pull one end of the band towards the other end on the same axis. I repeat this pull on the other side of the band in the same manner in the opposite direction.

Cases:

  • Simple Subretinal bands ( NOT extensive wide Subretinal proliferations)

Advantages:

  • Complete removal of Subretinal bands
  • Full retinal reattachment
  • Less operative time compared to retinectomy
