Retinochoroidectomy ab interno

Ophthalmic Surg. 1984 Sep;15(9):749-51.

Abstract

We evaluated the possibility of using an internal approach to surgically remove a part of the retina and choroid. Preoperative photocoagulation and the use of an endolaser and the vitrophage enabled us to perform retinochoroidectomy ab interno successfully in experimental animals.
