1022: Suprachoroidal hemorrhage

A suprachoroidal hemorrhage is a dreaded complication that can happen with any intra-ocular surgery. We most commonly see it during procedures where there is a relatively large incision and prolonged hypotony. Our previous videos of this complication have shown a severe choroidal hemorrhage and then how to drain these choroidal hemorrhages. This video shows a choroidal hemorrhage which happens during a routine cataract surgery when the patient has a coughing fit. Fortunately, the incisions are small and the extent of the hemorrhage can be limited. But the key question is, how do you finish the case?
