Operative:
1. pars plana vitrectomy

Procedure in detail:
a speculum was placed. standard pars plana vitrectomy trocars were set up. upon inspection, there was vitreous hemorrhage. there was a large area of submacular hemorrhage. pars plana vitrectomy was performed. PVD was present, and vitrectomy was performed. Using a submacular cannula, submacular tPA was injected. after appropriate injection, vitrectomy was performed, and air-fluid exchanged was performed. the instruments were removed, ad 20% SF6 gas was exchanged for air.
