Modified Techniques of Slinging Recti Muscles during Scleral Buckling

4: 51, Boon K Loh, MBBS, FRCSEd


Slinging of the four recti muscles during scleral buckling usually require four separate silk sutures. Our video demonstrates two modified techniques of slinging recti muscles - squint hook technique or single suture technique.The squint hook technique uses squint hooks only, abolishing the use of silk suture; while the single suture uses only one silk suture.
