This study aims to describe a new technique of indirect cyclopexy in the treatment of cyclodialysis. Cases who had cyclodialysis for more than 3 h of extent and were resistant to medical treatment underwent flanged prolene cyclopexy (FPC) technique. Five cases were included in this study. Mean duration between the initial surgery and FPC was 4.6 ± 4.3 months. Hypotony maculopathy was present in all cases. All cases underwent FPC in combination with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil injection. Circumferential FPC was applied in four cases, while focal FPC was performed in one case. Postoperatively, no complications occurred, visual acuity increased in four cases, and cyclodialysis closed in all cases. In the follow-up, silicone oil was removed in three cases, but silicone oil could not be removed in two cases with ongoing hypotony. Preliminary results showed that FPC is a promising technique in the surgical treatment of cyclodialysis.
