Abstract: Wedge scleral buckling done in 45 eyes of 43 patients with ballooning detachment and large horseshoe tears where fish-mouth phenomenon was anticipated pre-operatively is analysed. In all of the cases, the retinal break settled on the wedge buckle after drainage of sub-retinal fluid and there was no radial retinal folds over the buckle nor was there fish-mouthing of the tears. The final success rate was 89%. There were no significant operative or post-operative complications and in none of the cases was there extrusion of implant or infection.
