Live surgery performed by Dr Jürgens at FacoElche 2016

On February 5th, Dr Ignasi Jürgens, ICR Medical Director, took part on the 18th edition of FacoElche 2016, which took place in Elche (Alicante).

Over the course of this well-known scientific meeting, Dr Jürgens performed and commented a live surgery in which he used the most innovative existing microscope with integrated OCT that allows the display of high quality images of the surgery in real time, together with cross-sectional images of tissues obtained by means of a laser tomographer.

The surgical procedure consisted of a simultaneous retina and cataract intervention through micro-incisions in a 78-year-old patient with epiretinal membrane and cataract.
