Posterior Vitreous Separation by Tano Scraper

Bernd Kirchhof
There are few instances when either triamcinolone or fluid jet are insufficient to help detach the hyaloid. This is my only indication in vitreo-retinal surgery to use a Tano scraper. Its rough and sticky “tongue” entangles with the collagen fibres of the hyaloid and can provide the starting edge for  the cutter.
