PURPOSE To evaluate the advantages, disadvantages, safety, and surgical applicability of the pulsed electron avalanche knife (PEAK-fc), a new electrosurgical knife for "cold" and tractionless cutting, in vitreoretinal surgery. PEAK-fc is equipped with an integrated fiberoptic that makes bimanual procedures in intraocular surgery possible. METHODS A prospective consecutive trial of 18 eyes in 18 patients who underwent vitreoretinal surgery for proliferative diabetic retinopathy, proliferative… CONTINUE READING
