Two patients had rhegmatogenous retinal detachment after tributary retinal vein occlusion. Neovascularization adherent to the posterior hyaloid was avulsed, along with a plug of retinal tissue, as the vitreous body collapsed. Localized retinal detachments resulted. Photocoagulation successfully obliterated the retinal holes and prevented extension of the retinal detachments in both cases.
