The Use of Glucose-Diluted Trypan Blue in Membrane Peeling

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/The-Use-of-Glucose-Diluted-Trypan-Blue-in-Membrane-Peeling.flv Ivan Fiser, Ivan Kolin Advantages: It improves the adherence of trypan blue to the retina surface. It enables distinction between the posterior hyaloid, vitreoschisis, the ERM and the ILM. It makes the surgery faster and cheaper. Methods: The trypan blue, diluted with 10% glucose, makes the stain more viscous. It adheres better to the...

Combined 25g Vitrectomy + Sheathatomy + ILM Peeling + Phacoemulsification + IOL Implantation for the Treatment ofBranch Retinal Vein Occlusion

Murat Oncel, MD (Istanbul, Turkey) SYNOPSIS This film demonstrates the use of the transcon-junctival sutureless 25-gauge vitrectomy system combining with clear corneal phacoemulsification and posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation. Sheathotomy was performed either using a special knife or nitinol flexiable extandible pick with trypan blue-assisted peeling of the internal limiting membrane in branch retinal vein occlusion. Pre- and...

Modified Technique for Improving Trypan Blue Staining of Epiretinal Membranes

Modified Technique for Improving Trypan Blue Staining of Epiretinal Membranes

Stanislao Rizzo, MD (Lucca, Italy), Michele Palla, MD (Pisa, Italy), Federica Genovesi-Ebert, MD, PhD (Pisa, Italy) SYNOPSIS In the air-filled vitreous cavity we have instilled first TB and subsequently liquid perfluorocarbon, that due to its high specific gravity pushes down the coloring agent, thus making it spread better on the retinal surface, allowing a more effective and complete ERM staining and removal.   VIDEO not...
