Sean P. Donahue, MD, PhD; Jane Mizener, MD, Randall Verdick, BA, Randy H. Kardon, MD, PhD

This is a narrated video explaining the steps of a temporal artery (TA) biopsy. A TA biopsy is indicated when patients are suspected of having giant cell arteritis. The video is useful for ophthalmic surgeons who want to review this surgery. Patients with this diagnosis may find it helpful because a patient with giant cell arteritis who had the surgery is interviewed.
