    Microscope-integrated Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography for Anterior Segment Surgical Maneuvers

    Purpose : To evaluate the potential value of microscope-integrated optical coherence tomography (MI-OCT) in anterior segment surgical maneuvers. Methods : Twenty-four ophthalmology residents, who were randomly and evenly divided into two groups, performed four anterior segment surgical maneuvers (corneal tunnel, scleral tunnel, simple corneal suture, and corneal laceration repair) on porcine eyes with (group B) or without (group A) real-time MI-OCT feedback. All residents performed the maneuvers again without MI-OCT. Results : Compared with group A, group B (with MI-OCT) showed better accuracy in the length/depth of the corneal tunnel and the length of the scleral tunnel. However, both groups showed similar ...
