Despite excellent initial surgical outcomes, it is the most common cause of recurrent RD, frequently reducing the patient’s best final visual outcome. Even in eyes that did not initially have macular detachment, the retina rapidly detaches again after prior vitrectomy, often involving the macula, and may require multiple surgeries to maintain a permanently attached retina. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/intraoperative-oct-assisted-surgical-management-of-proliferative-vitreoretinopathy/ Thu, 08 Apr 2021 14:04:00 +0000 MD, FACS Robert A.

One of the findings of this phase of the study was that “in membrane peeling procedures, intraoperative OCT findings were discordant from the surgeon's initial impression in seven of 20 cases (35%).” (Runkle, Sunil et al, 2017). https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/microscope-integrated-oct-feasibility-and-utility-with-the-enfocus-system-in-the-discover-study/ Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:33:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19158 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy How Intrasurgical OCT can Impact the Surgical Approach to Membrane Peeling When treating patients with vitreomacular traction (VMT), peeling of the inner limiting membrane (ILM) or an epiretinal membrane (ERM) is often indicated. Successful outcomes depend on precise surgical maneuvers as well as the surgeon’s experience in order to assess whether the entire membrane has been removed, as this is crucial for successful release of traction. Showing different steps of removing an ERM to resolve VMT, the following videos captured with EnFocus intrasurgical OCT demonstrate how visualization of the membrane can impact the surgical process of membrane peeling. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/how-intrasurgical-oct-can-impact-the-surgical-approach-to-membrane-peeling/ Thu, 04 May 2017 07:12:00 +0000 Marie Stockton https://www.leica-microsystems.com/19022 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy What is OCT and how can it help ophthalmologists acquire high resolution information on ocular tissue? Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive, non-contact imaging modality used to visualize and monitor changes to the morphology of biological tissue. OCT employs low-coherence interferometry to create cross-sectional images that reveal sub-surface details of the tissues of interest. In the most common ophthalmic applications OCT systems use near-infrared light to generate high-resolution, volumetric images of tissue microstructures including the cornea, iris, crystalline lens, vitreous and retina. These images can enhance insight into pathological conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration or diabetic retinopathy. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/what-is-oct-and-how-can-it-help-ophthalmologists-acquire-high-resolution-information-on-ocular-tissue/ Thu, 01 Dec 2016 14:44:00 +0000 George Wildeman, PhD Hafeez Dhalla https://www.leica-microsystems.com/18978 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy How Intrasurgical OCT can Provide Additional Information During Ophthalmic DMEK Procedures Replacing diseased Descemet’s membrane with a donor graft is an especially delicate procedure.

Intraoperative ocular coherence tomography (iOCT) is a useful asset when performing macular surgery and other vitreoretinal procedures. Considering the advantages it provides, iOCT may be the next paradigm shift in vitreoretinal surgery according to Justis P.

Further research is needed to better define the specific applications of iOCT that impact patient outcomes and surgical decision-making. Future advancements in integrative systems, OCT-friendly instrumentation, and software algorithms will further expand the horizon of iOCT in the vitreoretinal surgical theater. As OCT transformed the clinical management of the vitreoretinal conditions, iOCT has the potential to be a paradigm-shifting technology in the operating room. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/the-value-of-intraoperative-oct-imaging-in-vitreoretinal-surgery/ Mon, 09 Nov 2015 13:15:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16544 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy Handheld Optical Coherence Tomography During Sedation in Young Children With Optic Pathway Gliomas Monitoring young children with optic pathway gliomas (OPGs) for visual deterioration can be difficult owing to age-related noncompliance. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) measures of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness have been proposed as a surrogate marker of vision but this technique is also limited by patient cooperation. To determine whether measures of circumpapillary RNFL thickness, acquired with handheld OCT (HH-OCT) during sedation, can differentiate between young children with and without vision loss from OPGs. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/handheld-optical-coherence-tomography-during-sedation-in-young-children-with-optic-pathway-gliomas/ Mon, 09 Nov 2015 13:13:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16542 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy High Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography Guided Donor Tissue Preparation for Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty Using Reverse Big Bubble Technique This study assessed the feasibility of High Resolution Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (HR-SDOCT) to guide donor tissue preparation in Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) using the reverse big bubble technique. https://www.leica-microsystems.com/science-lab/high-resolution-optical-coherence-tomography-guided-donor-tissue-preparation-for-descemets-membrane-endothelial-keratoplasty-using-reverse-big-bubble-technique/ Mon, 09 Nov 2015 13:12:00 +0000 https://www.leica-microsystems.com/16540 Optical Coherence Tomography Ophthalmology Surgical Microscopy OCT Publication List OCT is a non-invasive, contact-free technique that helps to detect and monitor morphological changes of ocular tissue, in particular retinal layer thickness, which can give insight into pathological conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic retinopathy.
