Potential Uses of the Finesse Flex Loop

In the two cases presented in this video, Kazuhito Yoneda, MD, demonstrates how the Finesse Flex Loop (Alcon) has potential to be used to peel something from the retina or pick something up from the bottom of the vitreous cavity. In the first case, Dr. Yoneda shows peeling of the internal limiting membrane in a patient with rhegmatogenous retinal detachment including the macula, which he performs under perfluorocarbon liquid using the Finesse Flex Loop. The second case involves a patient with intraocular lens dislocation and strong adhesion between the posterior vitreous hyaloid and the retina. Dr. Yoneda uses the instrument to peel the posterior vitreous hyaloid from the retina and to pick up the dislocated lens.

The Alcon Retina Exchange Film Festival event is an engaging dinner program driven by surgical case videos. At the most recent event in New Orleans during AAO, surgeons from around the world convened to trade pearls and discuss innovative technology with their peers. Alcon invited video submissions from around the globe and the top 10 were chosen to present live during the event.

The stellar faculty, moderated by Donald J. D'Amico, along with 10 guest speaker surgeons, presented video cases and the entire audience was involved in a discussion of pearls and techniques using Alcon’s latest technologies.

We hope you’ll enjoy viewing the program video highlights, along with a short interview with their author.
