Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Argon blue-green or diode laser indirect ophthalmoscope photocoagulation, performed through the transparent wall of an incubator, was used to treat threshold retinopathy of prematurity in two premature infants who were in poor systemic condition and could not be treated out of the incubator. Despite technical difficulties posed in one or both cases by their lateral position, small pupils, persistent tunica vasculosa lentis, and hazy cornea, there were no systemic complications and the retinopathy regressed in both cases.
