Subchoroidal Infusion with Air, Water, Silicone oil

DOI: 10.3207/0177645453

The typical situation for subchoroidal infusion is ocular hypotony. In the first instance hypotony exists because an infusion in place is removed and another infusion is introduced through the same sclerotomy. The line contains air which instantly escapes through the adjacent sclerotomy for the light pipe.  An angulated spatula is used from the opposite site of the infusion to free the tip of the subchoroidal infusion cannula from ciliary body tissue. Eventual remaining subchoroidal air can be left for spontaneous absorption, also in the next scene subchoroidal water can be left. In the third instance subchoroidal silicone oil entering through an excision site of choroid and RPE was also left untreated.
