Setting:

The video discusses various steps required to to a good clean up of vitreous in cases having mobile retina due to retinal detachment

Methods:

Various cases are shown to show how vitreous can be safely and effectively removed from its retinal attachments and peripheral base attachments. adjuncts such as triamcinolone and brilliant blue dye are also used to achieve this. Chandelier light is used so enhance peripheral visualisation and also allow peripheral indentation so as to bring the periphery closer to centre allowing good vitreous dissection

Results:

Safe and effective vitreous removal from its retinal attachment and vitreous base is discussed to form an effective strategy for achieving good anatomical and functional results

Conclusions:

Careful removal of vitreous using various effective strategies and adjuncts such a triamcinolone, brilliant blue and trypan blue and chandelier lights help to achieve good anatomical and functional results
