    Retinectomy-under-air solution for retina reattachment


    Retinectomy procedure

    The need for performing retinectomy is established after completing the usual steps to identify and eliminate factors creating traction and preventing the retina from reattaching. The sequence begins with removal of frontal plane vitreous traction and anterior loop traction, followed by peeling of obvious epiretinal membranes, for which Dr. Charles advocates using internal limiting membrane (ILM) forceps. (See Figures 1-3.)
