    Dr. Christina Weng demonstrates the step-by-step technique of draining a suprachoroidal hemorrhage (SCH) in an 86-year-old monocular woman who sustained injuries during a fall. The woman had several comorbidities in her better-seeing eye, including penetrating keratoplasty, inferonasal tube shunt and pseudophakia. The video highlights novel surgical techniques for SCH, such as the use of a cyclodialysis spatula to assist clot removal. Dr. Weng reviews the risk factors, presentation and detailed pre-operative management of this rare but devastating condition.
