Steve Charles, MD, FACS, FICS, of the Charles Retina Institute, speaks with Richard S. Kaiser, MD, and Jonathan L. Prenner, MD, regarding the steps involved in performing a retinectomy. Dr. Charles discusses his method and the benefits of using a continuous laser. He also compares the use of perfluoro-n-octane, infusion fluid, and air during the procedure. The three surgeons then examine multiple scenarios, including those involving interface vitrectomy, proliferative vitreoretinopathy, and closing large macular holes with retinal transplants.
