Retinal Detachment Stage 4A and 4B with Fibrovascular Membranes
This chapter is about vitrectomy for retinal detachment stage 4A and 4B with fibrovascular membranes. The membranes develop if you wait too long for treatment. The membranes lift up the retina resulting in a tractive retinal detachment. This pathology is surgically very difficult to treat. The surgery is described step-by-step. Videos are included.
