Trans-Scleral Surgery

The sclera offers many opportunities to advance surgical skills from a retina standpoint. John Kitchens, MD, presents several surgical techniques, including scleral tunnels, guarded needle drainage, and drainage of serous choroidals with needle aspiration.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Since 1996 I have preferred use the scleral tunnel over the scleral sutures. I think it's less prone to puncture the globe, but special care must be taken in proper positioning over the retinal tears to avoid poorly covered tears. I never has used guarded needle drainage but it's a technique that probably incorporate in my scleral surgeries. Thank you again.
