For RD extending to or beyond the equator, a drainage retinotomy
was made with the vitreous cutter at the temporal upper detached retina for internal drainage and fluid-air exchange.
* Drainage from Posterior Retinotomy
vs Drainage from Peripheral Break: Dr Debdulal Chakraborty vs Dr Vaibhav Srivastav
Machemer was the first eye surgeon who described relaxing retinotomy
(RR) during pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for an eye with retina incarcerated in a scleral wound following trauma1.
Therefore, after 8 days of therapy, the cyst was removed by retinotomy
. A few days later, peripheral retinal detachment occurred and was treated by a second vitrectomy and intravitreal gas injection.
Pars plana vitrectomy and retinotomy
were performed to remove subretinal tissue, which showed that there was leukemic infiltration in the choroid and concurrent bone marrow relapse (13).
We placed a small saline bubble under the retina to form a localized detachment of the retina from the retinal pigment epithelium and then made a retinotomy
at the edge of the saline bleb.
During the follow-up, one out of four PVR eyes developed a second recurrent retinal detachment and required relaxing retinotomy
and long-term tamponade with SO.
The larva was removed by pars plana vitrectomy and retinotomy
. Examination of the larva by dissection microscopy showed a 4 x 1-mm larva.

If there was no appropriate safe drainage site, a retinotomy
High specific gravity enables removal of subretinal fluid by primary retinal breaks, eliminating the need for a retinotomy
