Transvitreal Radial Optic Neurotomy

Hans Hoerauf, MD (Luebeck, Germany), Philipp Steven, MD (Luebeck, Germany) PURPOSE: The role of radial optic neurotomy (RON) as a new treatment option for central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO) is discussed controversially. To rule out a therapeutic effect of vitrectomy, posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) and/or ILM-delamination a transvitreal RON only was performed in 5 patients. METHODS: In 5 eyes of 5 patients with CRVO (2 ischemic, 3...
