Foreign Body Removal by Vitrectomy and Endomagnet

DOI: 10.3207/2247373018

This is an encapsulated older intraocular foreign body. At the time of injury there was very little vitreous hemorrhage. It was then possible to put a laser barrage around the foreign body to be able to remove the foreign body later on and lower risk of inducing a retinal detachment. Once the capsule is opened by the vitreous cutter the endomagnet attracts the iron foreign body and allows to remove it from the eye via the sclerotomy. Then the hyaloid is detached and removed as well.
