Vitreoretinal Surgery on Video: Retinal Detachment Combined with Proliferative Vitreo Retinopathy (PVR) Tape 2
Vitreoretinal surgery on video contains a selection of operations carried out during the past 8-10 years. The technical aspects of vitreoretinal surgery have undergone significant modifications during the last 10 years. The most important innovations have been the development of new instruments, the introduction of PFC liquid and the use of the wide angle system, all of which are demonstrated by the cases on the video. The eight videotapes are each of approximately 60 minutes duration and although there is no commentary, the accompanying text contains a short case history, and an explanation of the operative techniques used, with emphasis on important points during the operation, and a description of the instruments and their use. The series is aimed at ophthalmologists interested in vitreoretinal surgery. The video shows difficult and complicated cases in all indication groups, which the ophthalmologist encounters in his daily work. The concept of and techniques used in treatment of difficult vitreoretinal cases are described in Zivojonic's previously published book Silicone Oil in Vitreoretinal Surgery (Dordrecht), 1987, ISBN 0-89838-879-1). The video series is available as a complete set and as single tapes in PAL and NTSC formats. The author will donate the royalties to the Foundation for Ophthalmic Aid in favor of the eye clinics of the former Yugoslavia."
