Posterior Vitreous Separation by Tano Scraper

DOI: 10.3207/1211785212

There are few instances when either triamcinolone or fluid jet are insufficient to help detach the hyaloid. This is my only indication in vitreo-retinal surgery to use a Tano scraper. Its rough and sticky “tongue” entangles with the collagen fibres of the hyaloid and can provide the starting edge for  the cutter.
