Epiretinal Membrane Delamination With a Diamond Knife

Epiretinal Membrane Delamination With a Diamond Knife Abstract Removal of membranes from the retinal surface is an integral part of many vitreoretinal surgical procedures. Two-handed tissue delamination with a knife allows precise and accurate control of dissection planes. A newly designed diamond knife provides the consistently sharp cutting edge required for this technique. References 1. Meredith TA, Kaplan HJ, Aaberg TM.

Abstract

Abstract Removal of membranes from the retinal surface is an integral part of many vitreoretinal surgical procedures. Two-handed tissue delamination with a knife allows precise and accurate control of dissection planes. A newly designed diamond knife provides the consistently sharp cutting edge required for this technique. References 1. Meredith TA, Kaplan HJ, Aaberg TM.
