Retinal stability during hyaloid removal, better visualization of structures, assists dissection of fibrous membranes, facilitates endolaser of stabilised retina under tamponade, limits and confines blood.


Prospective interventional case series of 13 eyes with tractional retinal detachment using en bloc perfluorocarbon dissection technique. Videos will be shown.

Effectiveness / Safety:

100% anatomical success (retinal reattachment). The most common complication was iatrogenic break formation.

Take home message:

En bloc perfluorocarbon dissection is a useful adjunct technique to conventional dissection methods.
