Project Description

The purpose of this illustration is to demonstrate the specific steps associated with the insertion of a Baerveldt aqueous shunt, such as this surgeon’s preferred method of tube occlusion, in eight clear steps. This illustration works to highlight areas of action while maintaining the viewer’s sense of orientation throughout the image so that surgical residents may better understand this procedure.
