Iatrogenic transfoveal submacular injection of liquid perfluorocarbon

DOI: 10.3207/2970953389

The overly hard fluid jet of liquid perfluorocarbon directed towards the posterior pole of the eye near the retinal surface perforates the fovea. Most of the subretinal fluid escapes spontaneously via a pre-existing retinotomy. Remnants of submacular PFCL are being evacuated by the pressure of a preretinal PFCL bubble and subretinal aspiration. The procedure is completed by submacular transplantation of autologous pigment epithelium and choroid. The iatrogenic macular hole is addressed by ILM peeling.
