Posterior Vitreous Separation in Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Complicated by Iatrogenic Retinal

Bernd Kirchhof
The combination of retinal detachment and adherent hyaloid is a situation a risk of iatrogenic retinal holes. The retina is mobile and aspiration of cortex cannot be separated from aspiration of retina. The cutter is apparently not a suitable instrument here. Two iatrogenic retinal holes occurred until the procedure was completed in a primary vitrectomy approach. Posterior vitreous separation is left for  an eventual secondary procedure possibly in conjunction then with PVR surgery.
