In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Rajeev Muni provides tips and tricks on how to perform a successful pneumatic retinopexy. First, identify and pretreat all pathology in the attached retina before the gas bubble injection. He recommends removing as much aqueous fluid as possible from the anterior chamber and injecting the gas superiorly, at the highest point of the eye, to avoid fish eggs. A steam roller maneuver can be used to help to express fluid through the peripheral retinal break and minimize the amount of fluid that needs to be reabsorbed. Postoperative face-down positioning with gradual changes in head positioning is recommended.
