During vitreoretinal surgery, vital dyes such as brilliant blue G (BBG) are used to visualize anatomical structures. By adding glucose to a concentration of 5%, many surgeons try to achieve a dye mixture heavier than water to facilitate staining of the ILM without preceding fluid–air exchange. However, the intraocular use of high glucose concentrations is critical. This study investigated the effect of 0.4 ml BBG (Brilliant Peel™ 0.25 mg/ml, Fluoron, Ulm, Germany) mixed with various glucose… CONTINUE READING
