Navigated Retina Laser Therapy as a Novel Method for Laser Retinopexy of Retinal Tears.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE:

To describe the use of a navigated laser system for the treatment of retinal tears.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

A planned pattern laser retinopexy was performed using a navigated laser photocoagulator incorporating rapid panretinal photocoagulation technology with an individualized target overlay to produce a 3 × 3 square pattern surrounding a horseshoe tear. Institutional review board approval was not applicable for this case.

RESULTS:

Successful laser retinopexy 360° around the tear was achieved.

CONCLUSION:

In select cases, a navigated laser system may be utilized for the treatment of retinal tears. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:e206-e209.].
