Case 44: Severe Zone I/II Open Globe Injury with Stellate Wound Repair Followed by Enucleation
A 22-year-old man presented with a severe, complex Zone I-II open globe injury of the left eye after a fall. The patient underwent repair of this open globe injury in addition to associated facial lacerations. The patient’s postoperative course was complicated by a funnel retinal detachment and significant post-operative pain. The patient was offered further surgical intervention for the retinal detachment as well as the possibility of a corneal transplant in the future, but the patient was not interested in further surgical intervention and ultimately underwent enucleation.
