Shlomit Schaal, MD; PhD, Maya Bitar, MD; Yoreh Barak, MD; and Lana Rifkin, MD; present the injection of 1000 Centistokes silicone oil using a sutureless 25G vitrectomy technique. A 55-year-old African American gentleman underwent 25G vitrectomy surgery with 1000 centistokes silicone oil injection for the repair of a combined rhegmatogenous and tractional retinal detachment due to proliferative diabetic retinopathy. The video presents air fluid exchange and the injection of the oil through 25G superior temporal cannula. The flattening of the retina during the injection of the oil is demonstrated.
