Optimal laser power to rupture Bruch's membrane and the retinal vein in the pig.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE For laser-induced chorioretinal venous anastomosis to become a viable treatment option for perfused central retinal vein occlusion, laser parameters must be refined to more reliably create venous anastomoses while minimizing complications. The aim of this study was to determine the lowest argon laser power at which Bruch's membrane… (More)
