- This is a case of subhyaloid haemorrhage and Tractional retinal detachment in a diabetic patient. The subhyaloid haemorrhage is aspirated using the cutter . 25 gauge bevelled cutter is used to dissect all the epiretinal proliferations and tractional components. The ports of these cutters can reach very close to the retinal surface and cut flush without causing any iatrogenic damage to the retinal surface. Bleeders are stopped raising pressure and applying diathermy. Once the retina is flattened endolaser is done 360 degree to achieve long term regression.
