Hypnosis in high risk ophthalmic surgery
Language: 
English
Abstract: 

Hypnosis is an effective tool in many areas of medicine and surgery. The exacting demands of ophthalmic surgery require good patient cooperation and strict adherence to treatment regimens. Multisystemic diseases compounded by the physiological stress of surgery make it essential that already strained homeostatic mechanisms are interfered with minimally. The cases presented in this report illustrate the beneficial use of hypnosis in the treatment of several high risk patients in unusual situations.
