Ultrahigh Speed 5000 Cut Rate 25-Gauge (G) Vitrectomy System versus Standard 25-Gauge and 20-Gauge in the Treatment of Macular Epiretinal Membrane (ERMs)

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2009/congress/20-Gauge-23-Gauge-25-Gauge.flv Authors: Stanislao Rizzo, F. Genovesi-Ebert, Pisa, Italy Purpose: The 25-g vitrectomy time is significantly longer than 20-g one, due to the low efficiency of current small-gauge cutters. The aim of this study was to compare the efficiency and safety of new generation ultrahigh speed (UHS) 25-g Alcon Constellation ® with Alcon Accurus® 25- and 20-g vitrectomy...

Do Advances in Technology Improve Micro Incisional Vitrectomy Success ?

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/Do-Advances-in-Technology-Improve-Micro-Incisional-Vitrectomy-Success.flv Stanislao Rizzo, Federica Genovesi-Ebert Advantages: Despite its clinical advantages, Micro Incisional Vitrectomy (MIVS) pose significant challenges in performing water-airtight incisions and in thick membranes removal due to the scarce tools efficiency. Improvement of MIVS instrumentation may allow overcoming these drawbacks....

25 Gauge Transconjunctival Sutureless Vitrectomy (TSV) for Macular Holes (MH) Repair: How Can We Resolve Technique-related Problems?

Federica Genovesi-Ebert, MD (Pisa, Italy), Stanislao Rizzo, MD (Pisa, Italy), Andrea Vento, MD (Pisa, Italy), Sofia Miniaci, MD (Pisa, Italy), Michele Palla, MD (Pisa, Italy), Claudia Belting, MD (Pisa, Italy) PURPOSE: 25-g sclerotomies may not be airtight if extensive vitrectomy with air-fluid exchanges is required. We treated MH with 25-g TSV using a modified trocars insertions to achieve airtight sclerotomies, and autologous whole blood...

Modified Technique for Improving Trypan Blue Staining of Epiretinal Membranes

Stanislao Rizzo, MD (Lucca, Italy), Michele Palla, MD (Pisa, Italy), Federica Genovesi-Ebert, MD, PhD (Pisa, Italy) SYNOPSIS In the air-filled vitreous cavity we have instilled first TB and subsequently liquid perfluorocarbon, that due to its high specific gravity pushes down the coloring agent, thus making it spread better on the retinal surface, allowing a more effective and complete ERM staining and removal.   VIDEO not...
