    Honors celebrate research, future generation in retina

     

    Retinopexy

    Dr. Enami-Naeini, vitreoretinal fellow, University of California-Davis, Sacramento, conducted a multicenter study of pneumatic retinopexy (PR), which often involves less supervision of fellows compared to other surgical procedures. Experience and training of fellows “varies widely,” she said.

    She evaluated the experience of vitreoretinal fellows performing PR and outcomes of patients at six academic centers between 2002 and 2016.

    “Anatomic success of PR in the hands of fellows is comparable to rates reported from experienced surgeons,” she said, adding the data can be used to design more uniform curriculum and the creation of educational milestones in fellowship training.
