PVR Surgery through a Boston Keratoprothesis

DOI: 10.3207/1010209158

PVR retinal detachment followed the implantation of a Boston keratoprothesis. The video shows PVR-vitrectomy viewing the back of the eye through the keratoprothesis. The central retina can be seen without problem. The peripheral retina cannot be seen ideally, even with indentation. The alterative is to pull the peripheral retina centrally for retinotomy with the help of a forceps. Basically all necessary steps in PVR surgery can be fullfilled through a Boston keratoprothesis.
