EDITED FILM


ABSTRACT

Argus II Epiretinal prosthesis implant surgery is indicated in patients with end-stage retinitis pigmentosa with bilateral vision of hand motion, or light perception only. In this video, the very first implantation surgery in a 46-yr-old woman is demonstrated. In a young dystrophic eye the posteriof hyaloid was very adherent. The implantation of episcleral parts followed by pars plana vitrectomy and tacking of the epiretinal implants with 60 electrodes is shown in detail giving emphasis to the important steps of the surgery.
