Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade
by Hampton Roy

Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade focuses on the uses of the Fugo blade, a battery powered, portable electrosurgical unit that produces a cool, thin plasma cloud that coats a blunt cutting filament.

Ocular Applications of the Fugo Blade describes and illustrates more than 40 innovative procedures using this technology. Each section focuses on an anatomic area and details disorders that are treated with the use of the Fugo blade. Clear photographs, illustrations, and text explain the authors' approach to the surgical problems.

A companion website offers the full text online and an image bank.
