Abstract

Purpose : To describe the use of LED lighting of iPhone as an emergency measure in case of failure of the native vitrectomy lighting system.

Methods : We report an experienced event during surgery by presenting complete failure of the lighting system, vitrectomy opted to continue and complete the case so placing the end of the optical fiber light endoiluminación to the Camera LED of iPhone .

Results : It was possible to obtain and maintain an adequate lighting in the vitreous cavity during the rest of the case as performing maneuvers safely without any adverse effect.

Conclusions : Although this scenario is rare during surgery it could solve without delay or conmorbilidades to the patient, we do not recommend the routine use of this technique, however it is possible maneuver in similar cases.
