Dr. Rohit Adyanthaya demonstrates bimanual vitrectomy in a 38-year old patient with bilateral diabetic tractional retinal detachment. He begins with the essential first step, 360° trimming of the peripheral vitreous cone, followed by segmentation of individual fibrous tractional bands, using high cut rates and low suction. Finally, chandelier lighting aids bimanual dissection of all scar tissue from the retina before air-fluid exchange, panretinal photocoagulation and C3F8 gas.
