Lorenzo J. Cervantes, MD, shares his technique for using a Malyugin Ring (MicroSurgical Technology). This is a modification of a technique described by Deepinder Dhaliwal, MD. Although the ring’s insertion is straightforward, the viscoelastic cannula can be used as a second hand when the surgeon often wants one: at the disengagement of the ring from the injector. Releasing only the distal and proximal loops of the ring can make for the device’s efficient removal. Engaging a stable ring can be accomplished by “capturing” the proximal loop in the incision.
