Abstract

We report a case of subretinal hemorrhage associated with age-related macular degeneration, in which tissue plasminogen activating factor was used to help remove the subretinal blood. The surgical technique involved using multiple small retinotomy sites and alternating suction and backflushing to produce fluid flow from the subretinal space to the vitreous cavity.
