The urgency and site of retinal detachment surgery


injection (although this was not encountered in Southampton). Clearly we make great efficiency savings by being less reliant on anaesthetic cover, especially when providing theatre time for acute surgical VR work. The paper goes on to state that 51.7% of the cases included in the study are ‘retinopexy þ/ vitrectomy’. This could be interpreted as a significant proportion in the LA group simply receiving retinopexy for retinal tear. Clarification on the above will be welcomed.
