Title: SURGICAL INSTRUMENT FOR ATTACHING SCLERAL BUCKLE IN RETINAL DETACHMENT TREATMENT
Abstract:
A surgical instrument and a method of repairing a retinal detachment in an eye are provided. The surgical instrument includes a free end and an operable end opposite to the free end for insertion around the eye through an entry aperture. The tip of the operable end includes a hook portion that is rotated around a circumference of the eye upon insertion. Accordingly, the instrument allows for decreased procedure time and also decreased inflammation and trauma to the eye.
