To describe the how is possible to customize the number of the trocars in the vitreoretinal surgery.
This video shows how is possible to customize the number of the trocars (from the standard 3 to 0 ports) during a vitrectomy. Starting from the standard 3 ports vitrectomy, we can use 2 ports vitrectomy (with slit lamp or chandelier illumination); reducing to 1 port pars plana vitrectomy (by using “Reflow strategy”, personal technique with anterior chamber infusion) arriving to anterior vitrectomy via-limbus, typically used in case of anterior segment complications or trauma.
Effectiveness / Safety:
Among the cases, which were contributed for the study, anatomic and functional results seem to be better when the approach is reported to the individual case.
