Abstract

A technique for resecting a sizeable portion of the posterior segment is described. The procedure, involves stabilization of the eyeball and fixation of the operative area with a ring shaped device (eyebasket). Full-thickness (sclera, choroid, and retina) resection was performed within the ring, and the resected area was replaced with a scleral homograft. No retinal detachments occurred, and there was no inflammatory reaction to the graft. Several cases were complicated by moderate vitreous hemorrhage, but in each case, the hemorrhage was resorbed within 6-8 weeks. Prophylactic photocoagulation four weeks prior to surgery (done on 10 of the rabbits) prevented the occurrence of vitreous hemorrhage.
