Retinal slippage can sometimes complicate retinal detachment repair. In this case, the patient developed a recurrent inferior retinal detachment with a significant retinal fold just temporal to the fovea one week after vitrectomy by an outside doctor. Drs. Chirag Shah and Sabin Dang demonstrate how they unfold the retina, expanding the inferior detachment and extending it temporally, while keeping the macula attached with a small perfluorocarbon bubble. Serrated forceps are used to gently tease and unfold the retina. Finally, perfluorocarbon is injected to steamroll and flatten the retina.
