Chandelier-assisted technique shines for improving scleral buckling
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLs
Scleral tunnel ‘glued’ fixation technique for slipped IOLsScleral tunnel, “glued” fixation technique works better than alternative fixation techniques in cases where intraocular lenses (IOLs) cannot be placed in capsular bag or in the sulcus, according to Sumit Garg, MD.
Temporary scleral buckling offers advantages for retinal detachmentTemporary scleral buckling performed with a removable external device provides the benefits of scleral buckling while addressing its downsides as surgery for a detached retina.
Scleral buckle technique using PPV, laser photocoagulation
Scleral buckle technique using PPV, laser photocoagulationScleral buckles and vitrectomy are the two main procedures used today to treat retinal detachments, with many surgeons performing a combination of the two.
Vitrectomy beats scleral buckling in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment studyEyes operated on with pars plana vitrectomy needed fewer reoperations over 180 days than eyes subjected to scleral buckling (SB) in a retrospective comparison of patients with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD).
Buckling procedure successful for retinal detachment in high myopia
Exploring a new method for scleral bucklingA retinal surgeon describes a new scleral buckling device which requires less surgical dissection, has a one or two-stitch fixation, is applicable to treat pathology over 4 clock hours in any quadrant, and which can be removed in the office 3 to 4 weeks after insertion.
