Journal Article (Journal Article)

PURPOSE: To describe a surgical approach using intraoperative optical coherence tomography and endoscopy for successful Argus II retinal prosthesis system removal. METHODS: Retrospective review of a patient undergoing Argus II explantation 8 months after initial implantation. RESULTS: Successful explantation of the Argus II device was performed in this patient. CONCLUSION: Explantation of the Argus II device can be a difficult surgery, and intraoperative optical coherence tomography and endoscopy can be used to help avoid potential complications.
