A contact Nd: YAG laser to resect large ciliary body and choroidal tumors
- 13 Downloads
We used a contact Nd: YAG laser fit with a 0.2-mm diameter sapphire tip to excise a large (5 1/2 clock hour) iris ciliary body-choroidal tumor and a large (15×8×3 mm) choroidal tumor. The cutting and coagulation action of the laser helped to minimize intraoperative and postoperative hemorrhage.
