Bimanual Removal of Large Foreign Bodies with the Use of a Suture Loop, and a New Foreign Body Forceps

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x15yegr Objective / Purpose: IOFBs are common in open-globe injuries and can present in various shapes and sizes. The appropriate instrument for extraction depends on the size, composition, magnetic properties, and location of the IOFB and the presence of associated ocular damage. Although there are several instruments for the removal of IOFBs, including intraocular forceps, and intraocular magnets, they...

A New Microscope with Wide Angle Viewing System without Endoillumination

A New Microscope with Wide Angle Viewing System without Endoillumination

Murat Oncel, MD (Istanbul, Turkey) SYNOPSIS This film demonstrates the technique of using a new microscope observation system for vitrectomy procedures that does not require the use of fiber optic illumination. Without fiber optic illumination, the surgeon is able to perform bimanuel surgery. A 40D non-contact lens provides a wide-angle viewing. ...

Bimanual Surgery as the Golden Standard in PDR

Bimanual Surgery as the Golden Standard in PDR

Giampaolo Gini, MD (Prato, Italy) SYNOPSIS Proliferative diabetic retinopathy continues to be a major cause of blindness throughout the world. Removal of fibrovascular tractions on the retina while avoiding the possibile iatrogenic damage deriving from such manouvers, requires both a good understanding of the anatomical variations involved in each specific case as well as the possibilty of using a bimanual technique. Aim of the video is to...

Shielded Bullet Pick

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2006/videos/Shielded-Bullet-Pick.flv Edwin H. Ryan, MD (Minneapolis, MN)* SYNOPSIS The shielded bullet pick has been available for nearly 10 years. I think it is underutilized, and feel it both saves time and improves outcomes in complex cases. This video will show some of its uses for bimanual membrane dissection. The cases include PVR, PDR, RD with macular hole, myopic macular hole, and management of dislocated...

Illuminated Vitrector, Facilitates Bimanual Vitrectomy and Benefits in Macular Hole Surgery without Demand for Face Down

Jan-Olof Carlsson Purpose: The advantage of bimanual vitrectomy is wellknown by vitreoretinal surgeons. The reason for using a prototype of an illuminated vitrector is an ambition to further facilitate development of this technique. The primary purpose of the study was to evaluate the capacity and consistency of this instrument as the only vitrectorprobe used, both in straightforward and complex surgery. The other purpose was to evaluate...
