This video includes a series of surgeries for the treatment of retinal detachment associated with a temporal retinal dialysis plus giant retinal tear and a giant macular tear in a premature baby traumatized by her parents at 35 weeks of gestational age. After the first surgery, although giant retinal tear was repaired under silicone oil tamponade, the giant macular tear persisted. Human amniotic membrane plug was used at the second surgery, which ended up with closure of giant macular tear. Retina stayed attached after silicone oil removal.
