Retina/Vitreous, Vitreoretinal Surgery
In this surgical video, Drs. Ronald Milam and Rishi Singh demonstrate a rare presentation of sub-internal limiting membrane blood (ILM) in the setting of a central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). The patient was initially diagnosed with CRVO and vitreous hemorrhage; baseline BCVA in the effected eye was 5/200. Elevation of the posterior hyaloid revealed that the blood was in the sub-ILM space. Proportional reflux and aspiration were used to remove the ILM and blood. The patient received postoperative anti-VEGF treatment. Four months postop, the patient’s vision improved to 20/20.
