Role of Endo-diathermy Probe in PDR Surgery

I use the endodiathermy probe as one of two instruments for bimanual dissection of diabetic fibrovascular proliferations. It replaces either the forceps or the vitreous cutting probe and scissors. Forceps Replacement: I identify the surgical planes, by inserting the endodiathermy probe tip underneath the membranes; this allows me to dissect with the vitreous cutting probe under good visulaization. Probe/scissors Replacement: In the...

Bi-linear Aspiration Flow & Cutting Frequency Control and Segmentation in PDR

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Different techniques have been described for the dissection of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). When there is a strong adherence between the fibrovascular proliferation and the retinal vessels, segmentation is a safe technique to reduce the risk of bleeding and retinal tear. With the advance of vitrectomy machines, the control...
