Sheets Glide-Assisted Intraocular Placement of the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis.

Published

Journal Article

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: As an increasing number of vitreoretinal surgeons are implanting retinal prosthesis devices, the need to share surgical techniques to ease implantation in challenging scenarios grows. The authors share a technique to aide in overcoming a challenge associated with uveal prolapse in a patient undergoing Argus II retinal prosthesis (Second Sight Medical Products, Sylmar, CA) implantation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A surgical technique is discussed and demonstrated using a video (Video available at www.healio.com/OSLIRetina). RESULTS: A Sheets glide-assisted technique was used to successfully place the electrode array in the vitreous cavity. CONCLUSION: The Sheets glide may be a useful tool in aiding the retinal surgeon to successfully and easily place the electrode array of the Argus II retinal prosthesis.
