IOP and Aqueous Flow, Pediatric Ophth/Strabismus
This video shows the management of 3 cases of traumatic cyclodialysis cleft associated with severe ocular hypotony. All were from the pediatric age group. Their cyclodialysis cleft was difficult to treat with outpatient laser photocoagulation. As an alternative, an endoscopic unit with a light source, diode laser, and video camera usually used for endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation was used to apply laser photocoagulation in addition to some other intraocular manipulations. This presentation includes a microscopic and endoscopic view of the procedure showing direct visualization and laser photocoagulation of the cyclodialysis cleft as well as pre- and postsurgery slit-lamp and ultrasound photos.
