Abstract

We applied vitreous surgical techniques in the treatment of hemorrhagic and fibrous complications of choroidal neovascular membranes by removing subretinal scars or hemorrhage, or both, in four patients. The surgical goals were achieved in all patients. Visual acuity improved in three patients. The major complication was recurrent detachment associated with large retinotomies.
