Video: Epiretinal Membrane Peel Using Intraoperative OCT (iOCT)


We used the Zeiss ReScan 700 (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) in a case of a thick epiretinal membrane (ERM). This video demonstrates visualization of the vitreoretinal interface with real-time view through the microscope. The integrated view provides real-time feedback to the surgeon. 

The video demonstrates that contrast agents appear differently on iOCT (triamcinolone acetonide and indocyanine green). Surgical tools can be identified on the scan including intraocular forceps and a flexible loop. Remaining ERM can be identified by the iOCT and peeled.
