SYNOPSIS

New techniques and devices are helping us deal successfully with complex trauma cases. Drainage implants have proved reliable where no other option for controlling IOP is available. Posterior hyaloid identification with Triamcinolone and its consequent removal accounts for fewer mid- and long-term retinal complications. Finally, the laser-assisted corneal welding procedure we present has proven some advantages over the more conventional methods. Some of these include earlier wound closure and more stable wound repair.
