Pediatric MIVS Retina Surgery
Sponsored by Alcon Laboratories, Inc.

Although micro-incision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS) is now widely practiced by retina surgeons, the application to pediatric retina surgery has been limited. Flex characteristics and inefficient vitreous removal with small-gauge systems have made the transition largely impractical for surgeons who face pediatric cases with challenging ocular anatomy.

The surgeons who specialize in pediatric retina at Associated Retinal Consultants in Royal Oak, MI, however, have recently begun using the CONSTELLATION Vision System. The following articles detail the experiences of Antonio Capone Jr., MD, Kimberly Drenser, MD, PhD, and Michael Trese, MD, using the CONSTELLATION System.
