Optic Nerve Sheath Fenestration

Channels: Oculoplastics

Optic Nerve Sheath Fenestration (ONSF) has been shown to be effective in treating vision loss second to idiopathic intracranial hypertension, also known as pseudotumor cerebri. The ONSF procedure involves cutting a window into the optic nerve sheath, allowing the excess fluid to escape and harmlessly absorb into surrounding tissues. Amar Agarwal, MD, presents the surgical procedure starting with a 270 degree peritomy and blunt dissection under the tenons capsule After cutting the medial rectus and putting traction sutures on the remaining muscles, the globe is retracted to expose the optic nerve. A 4-mm incision is made in the sheath.

Operative Dictations in Ophthalmology

This book provides residents with a comprehensive review of surgical cases within the field of ophthalmology. Operative Dictations in Ophthalmology touches on important steps within each surgical case, indications for the procedure, possible complications, and a sample dictation. The review serves as both a preparation and debriefing for each surgeon, or surgeon in training, by improving comprehension time, cultivating surgical forethought, and refining post operative dictations.
