Dr Ignasi Jürgens to present world-pioneering technique at the XXII Congress of the Spanish Retina and Vitreous Society

The XXII Congress of the Spanish Retina and Vitreous Society, which takes place in Santander on Thursday 1 March, will bring together distinguished ophthalmologists from around the world.

It is one of the most important annual meetings in the ophthalmology sector and its objective is exchanging and analysing experiences related to medical and surgical treatment and which focuses in this case on retinal pathologies.

This year over 1,000 people will take part and it will focus on the latest technological and diagnostic advances as well as on ways to approach the main diseases of the retina and vitreous as well as the latest drugs to treat them.

Presentation by Dr. Ignasi Jürgens

We would like to highlight the new research that will be presented by Dr. Ignasi Jürgens, Medical director and Head of the Retina and Vitreous Department at Institut Català de Retina. The research refers to a highly complicated (and fortunately infrequent) pathology and to a technique for treating multiple macular holes. Dr. Jürgens has been a world pioneer in the use of this technique, providing a solution for this serious pathology.

Dr. Jürgens’ presentation covers the latest developments in complex macular surgery. Specifically, there will be a round table analysis of the role of the retina’s internal limiting membrane in different macular pathologies that have developed for etiological reasons or as a result of treatment of different conditions of the retina.
