    INTRAOPERATIVE OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY AND ENDOSCOPY-GUIDED EXPLANTATION OF ARGUS II DEVIC

    Purpose: To describe a surgical approach using intraoperative optical coherence tomography and endoscopy for successful Argus II retinal prosthesis system removal. Methods: Retrospective review of a patient undergoing Argus II explantation 8 months after initial implantation. Results: Successful explantation of the Argus II device was performed in this patient. Conclusion: Explantation of the Argus II device can be a difficult surgery, and intraoperative optical coherence tomography and endoscopy can be used to help avoid potential complications.
