A variety of techniques can be useful for addressing the formation of choroidal detachments during vitrectomy. Before starting surgery, the light pipe may be used to directly visualize the correct position of the infusion cannula in the vitreous cavity. Care should also be taken to insert the trocars at a steep enough angle to penetrate into the vitreous cavity.2 If choroidal detachment forms intraoperatively, a longer, 6-mm 20- or 23-gauge infusion cannula may be substituted to ensure that the cannula tip reaches the vitreous cavity.1 Alternatively, the infusion line can be completely removed and changed to another location away from the choroidal detachment. However, neither of these techniques enables drainage and resolution of the newly formed choroidal detachment. Instead, we propose leaving the partially displaced 23-gauge cannula in the same position and using it to drain the suprachoroidal fluid.
