Recently, the neodymium:yttrium aluminum gamet (Nd:YAG) laser was used to perform transluminal Nd:YAG laser embolysis (TYE) in patients with central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO), branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) and a cilioretinal artery occlusion.
During the embolysis and opening the arteriol wall, some part of the embolus could have been passed into the vitreous.
