    An Unappealing Case of Unpeeling Posterior PVR


    Dr. R. Rishi Gupta tackles a grade C proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) "starfold" in the macula of a patient with chronic macula-off retinal detachment. Demonstrating careful peeling of internal limiting membrane and pre-retinal PVR membranes, he offers pearls for the effective removal of the ILM on a detached retina—which is much more mobile than one that is attached—including the use of a variety of instruments and, at times, a bimanual approach.
