A two band procedure is proposed for difficult and complicated retinal detachments. To date it has been used successfully in more than 120 patients with an anatomic reattachment rate of 82.5%. It is advocated primarily for those conditions in which silicone explants, meridional implants, and broad encircling elements prove inadequate. Only three complications directly related to this procedure have been recorded.
