Martin Charles, MD, shares a video demonstrating the Constellation Vision System in a retinal detachment surgery with severe ocular inflammation. The new Alcon Edge plus valved cannulas are used, and a helpful pearl on entering with soft long silicone cannulas is shared. A 5000 cut rate set is used during the whole procedure with linear vacuum. External scleral indentation is performed to shave the vitreous base. After the retina is attached an air silicon exchange is performed and the venting valve is used to avoid a sudden rise in the IOP.
