TECHNIC FOR ACCELERATING THE GUIST-LINDNER OPERATION FOR RETINAL DETACHMENT

TECHNIC FOR ACCELERATING THE GUIST-LINDNER OPERATION FOR RETINAL DETACHMENT Abstract It appears from the article by Dunnington and Macnie1 in the February issue of the Archives of Ophthalmology that the Guist-Lindner operation is performed frequently in at least one ophthalmic center.

It is hardly necessary to point out to those familiar with the original technic the disadvantages of the labor involved and of the time spent in completing an extensive series of trephnings with the ordinary instrument, which is rotated by finger and thumb. In my experience this absorption of time alone was regarded a serious matter which hardly justified the performance when other methods were available which were apparently productive of as good results. Its further employment demanded a search for a more expeditious technic, and the use of Green's mechanical trephine solved the problem so far References 1.

Abstract

Abstract It appears from the article by Dunnington and Macnie1 in the February issue of the Archives of Ophthalmology that the Guist-Lindner operation is performed frequently in at least one ophthalmic center. It may not be out of place, therefore, to draw attention to a means of accelerating the procedure. It is hardly necessary to point out to those familiar with the original technic the disadvantages of the labor involved and of the time spent in completing an extensive series of trephnings with the ordinary instrument, which is rotated by finger and thumb. In my experience this absorption of time alone was regarded a serious matter which hardly justified the performance when other methods were available which were apparently productive of as good results. Its further employment demanded a search for a more expeditious technic, and the use of Green's mechanical trephine solved the problem so far References 1.
