VT105-A Novel Device to Enhance Surgeon Patient Relationship

Dr. Ayan Mohanta, Dr.Debashis D

High definition live video feed from the operated eye is projected on to the other eye of the patient. This is done with the help of a special thumbnail LCD placed in front of the other eye. This ultimately forms a virtual screen 78 inches diagonally and about 2 metres away from the patient. This is only possible if the patient has a reasonably good vision in the other eye. Initial results are really encouraging, willing patients are really happy, to see the live feed.

VT132-The stupid smartphone takes on the verion giant

Dr.Rahil Chaudhary, Dr.Sanjay Chaudhary, Dr.Malik K P S

Purpose Smart phones apps are being increasingly used among health care professionals. Ophthalmological toric axis marking apps are easily available and can turn smartphones into sophisticated medical devices. We used TorAxis mobile app for reference marking and compared its accuracy with Verion digital axis marker and manual bubble marker.

VT133-Bridge the Gap – Cutler-Beard Technique Revisited

Dr.Abhilasha Maheshwari, Dr.Sonal Chaugule, Dr.Santosh G Honavar, Dr. Raksha rao,

To demonstrate the surgical technique for reconstruction of large full-thickness upper eyelid (UL) defects. Reconstruction of full-thickness UL defects for optimal cosmetic and functional outcome is challenging. Cutler-Beard is a classic two-staged procedure utilizing full-thickness vertical advancement bridge flap from lower eyelid (LL). Modifications in the technique such as leaving LL tarsus intact, division of flap into anterior & posterior lamina, careful re-attachment of LPS and “fixing” of lid height in stage 1, differential division of lamina (conjunctiva longer than skin-muscle lamina) and Tisseel glue for conjunctivalized UL margin in stage 2 can give excellent results. This video shows important steps in surgical management of large UL defects by modified Cutler-Beard technique.

VT134-Surgical Management of Blepharophimosis.

Dr.Abhilasha Maheshwari, Dr.Sonal Chaugule, Dr. Raksha rao, Dr.Santosh G Honavar

To demonstrate the surgical techniques to widen horizontal palpebral fissure (HPF) in blepharophimosis. Blepharophimosis-ptosis-epicanthus inversus syndrome (BPES) is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by typical eyelid malformations- blepharophimosis, ptosis, epicanthus inversus and telecanthus. Correction of epicanthus and telecanthus can be done by C-U plasty with medial canthal tendon plication, moving the medial canthus medially.

VT148-Dancing with the Dermoids!

Dr.Sonal Chaugule, Dr.Santosh G Honavar, Mr.Chalamala Jangaiah, Gangadhar Jalli

Dermoid cysts are the most common benign orbital lesions in pediatric population. Depending on the site of origin they can be sutural, anterior orbital, deep orbital, trans-orbital, intraosseous or conjunctival. Complete surgical excision is the treatment of choice. Inflammation, recurrence and fistula can complicate capsular breach and incomplete excision. Dermoids pose a surgical challenge due to their periosteal or sutural attachment, bony erosion, fistula formation and risk of intra-operative rupture. This video demonstrates step-by-step approach to excision of an external angular dermoid.

VT149-Cryo – The Third Hand in Tumors of the Eye and Adnexa

Dr.Sonal Chaugule, Dr.Santosh G Honavar, Mr.Chalamala Jangaiah, Gangadhar Jalli

Appropriate primary management is the key to success in tumors of the eye & adnexa. Surgical techniques have to be highly precise to ensure complete tumor removal without capsule disruption or microscopic residual. In the era of ‘no touch’ surgical techniques in the field of ocular oncology, cryotherapy works as the third efficient hand of the surgeon in managing eyelid, ocular surface, intraocular & orbital tumors. It is used to definitively treat small tumors of the eyelid and ocular surface and as adjuvant for the surgical margins following excision. Cryotherapy is extensively used to treat intraocular tumors, specifically small peripheral retinoblastoma, as chemo-cryotherapy & in safety-enhanced intravitreal chemotherapy.

VT158-Levator Extirpation & Lid crease Creation, for optimal cosmesis, in Frontalis Sling Ptosis Surgery

Dr.Debraj Shome, Dr.Shilpa Taneja Mittal

Frontalis suspension with a silicone rod sling is the standard of care in patients with ptosis, having poor levator action.This gives decent cosmetic results, with the lid height of the operated eye being comparable to the normal eye. However, we found that our patients were still unhappy with the cosmetic results, despite the eyelid margin of the operated eye being at the same level as the normal eye.

VT160-The use of Botulinum Toxin & Filler Injections to Equalize the Asymmetry in the Eye Sizes

Dr.Debraj Shome, Dr.Shilpa Taneja Mittal, Dr.Rinky Kapoor

A patient presented to us to treat the asymmetry in eye sizes, between the two eyes. She had been suggested oculoplastic surgery by another surgeon for her eyelid to treat the left eye, which was smaller and appeared asymmetrical compared to her right eye. She did not want eyelid surgery, but wanted to evaluate a non-surgical option. We decided to treat her with an under eye filler injection treatment and Botox injections. While the filler fills the under eye tear trough deformity and reduces the “valley’ below the eye; the Botox injection in the under eye area flattens the ‘mountain’ – the rolled out hypertrophic orbicularis oculi eyelid muscle, which was making the left eye appear even smaller, on smiling

VT205-Small pupil on table? Here are all management tips ! No problems, queries or worries !

Dr.Vanaja Vaithianathan, Dr.Arokiam John Bosco

Small pupils can result from pseudoexfoliation, chronic uveitis, chronic usage of eye drops (Pilocarpine), insufficient usage of dilating drops, old age etc. Whatever is the cause, performing cataract surgery through small pupil is a tough task, sometimes even a nightmare, especially when there are other odds like hazy cornea, hard brown cataract & zonular weakness. The video presentation aims at covering all the management options, possible for small pupil, including pharmocological & surgical
