Briefly, retinectomy at the surface of the tumor was done after total vitrectomy was performed.
Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of primary and redo retinectomy in eyes with complex retinal detachment.
Operative technique included pars plana vitrectomy, proliferative vitreoretinopathy management, use of intraoperative perfluorocarbon liquid, retinectomy, endolaser and intraocular temponade.
Therefore, peripheral retinectomy preceded by endodiathermy of adjacent retina tissue was necessary in each patient to allow final total retinal reattachment at the end of surgery (Figure 1).
