Advantage of Leaving Buckle Knots Untightened: VIT Buckle ILM Peel

Channels: Retina

In a chronic Mac OFF RD with dialysis and macular hole, Dr. John Miller highlights his preference to leave buckle knots untightened until the final height before vitrectomy. Dr. Miller peels from the optic nerve for counter traction and makes a super nasal drainage retinotomy. Interestingly, Dr. Miller decompresses the subretinal fluid through the break to stabilize the retina, negating the need to use a tamponade.

The Alcon Retina Film Festival is an engaging dinner program driven by surgical case videos. At the most recent event in Chicago during AAO, surgeons from around the world convened to trade pearls and discuss innovative technology with their peers.

The stellar faculty, moderated by Donald J. D'Amico, along with guest speaker surgeons, presented video cases and the entire audience was involved in a discussion of pearls and techniques using Alcon’s latest technologies. View the program video highlights, along with a short interview with their author.
