Abstract
Using an experimental fiberoptically guided CO2 laser system, we performed lesions on fresh bovine retinas. These lesions were shown to achieve measurable immediate chorioretinal adhesion. This model implies the feasibility of utilizing a fiberoptic CO2 laser probe in intraocular surgery for retinal detachment. The advantages of using CO2 laser energy are minimal damage surrounding the desired lesion and its versatility as a coagulator and cutter. With further research we believe that the technical problem of delivery can be solved. The CO2 endolaser holds promise for intraocular surgery.
