Revisonal surgery

DOI: 10.3207/1542534699

About six months after implantation the footplate of the epiretinal implant rotated due to  twist in the cable. This lead to a loss of contact with the retina. The pin holding the footplate needed to be removed. Finally also the sclerotomy needed to be reopened to abolish the twist in the cable. Unfortunately I pushed the pin through the footplate two times requiring removal of the pin and the spring separately from within the eye.
