Pterygium Removal With Ambio5
Gregory T. Hofeldt, MD, removes a large pterygium and takes extra care to excise the root completely. A beaver blade is used to remove extra tissue from the cornea and scrape the limbus. The surgeon measures the defect with calipers to determine the size of the graft. He cuts an over-sized Ambio5 (IOP Inc.) graft, a dehydrated human amniotic membrane graft, and affixes it to the bare sclera with fibrin adhesive.
