Özet

A simple surgical technique is described for repair of iridodialysis and a traumatic iridodialysis case is presented. In this technique, a 10-0 polypropylene suture is used for repair. The knot is left in the anterior chamber to avoid suture related complications such as erosion, patient discomfort, and infection. This technique can be a safe and easy way to repair large iridodialysis.
