1st Annual Global Video Contest - Grand Prize Winner
Winner of the 2014 Global ONE Video Contest. Retinal folds are a rare complication after retinal detachment repair. Surgery is required if fovea is involved. The authors describe a 5-step surgical approach to deal with retinal folds involving the fovea: perimacular subretinal blebs created with a 41-gauge cannula; fluid-air exchange to coalesce the fluid at the macula; back to fluid on the third step; perfluorocarbon liquid injected to flatten the retina; and subretinal fluid drainage performed through a peripheral retinotomy. This surgery was performed in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
