Posterior Segment Trauma, Retina/Vitreous
In this surgical video Drs. Rajeev Muni, Eli Kisilevsky and team demonstrate the removal of a 15-mm long, metallic intraocular foreign body. The object was lodged in the superior nasal region. The procedure required careful manipulation within the vitreous cavity to allow safe removal. Triamcinolone was used during the pars plana vitrectomy to help induce a posterior vitreous detachment. The surgeons avoided damage to intraocular structures by carefully monitoring both ends of the large object and repositioning it for removal.
