Suprachoroidal buckling (SCB) technique is a new approach developed by Ehab N El Rayes and Oshima for treating rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD). SCB uses a specially designed catheter to inject and place a suprachoroidal filler (long-lasting hyaluronic acid solution) in the suprachoroidal space. This filler indents the choroid alone and creates a suprachoroidal buckling effect thereby closing retinal tears and supporting the overlying retina. The sclera itself is not involved in the indentation. SCB can also be used as an alternative to episcleral macular buckling for managing myopic traction maculopathy (MTM).
