A New Step in Sutureless Vitrectomy Technique

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2006/videos/A-New-Step-in-Sutureless-Vitrectomy-Technique.flv Jean-Pierre Hubschman, MD (Saint Jean De Luz, France) SYNOPSIS The latest sutureless vitrectomy 23 and 25 gauge techniques help decrease the surgical traumatism and improve the post op comfort. Unfortunately, both trans-conjunctival systems do not have only positive aspects. A new sutureless vitrectomy technique has been developed combining the...

A New Step in Sutureless Vitrectomy

Jean-Pierre Hubschman, (Saint Jean De Luz, France) PURPOSE: The latest sutureless vitrectomy 23 and 25 Gauge techniques help decrease the surgical traumatism and improve the post op comfort. Unfortunately, both transconjonctival systems do not have only positive aspects. A new sutureless vitrectomy technique has been developped combining the main advantages of both 23 and 25G techniques. METHODS: This technique uses a new pack including 23...

Interest of the Use of 25 Gauge Vitrectomy Technique in Diabetic Retinopathy

Jean Pierre Hubschman, Rita Soyeur The transconjonctival vitrectomy system presents some real advantages in cases of diabetic retinopathy. In fact, this new technique without conjunctival opening nor closing is perfectly adapted for most of vitreo-retinal surgical cases in diabetic retinopathy. Now, we have the opportunity to perform less traumatic vitreo-retinal surgery in tractional macular edema and moderate proliferative retinopathy, it...

Interest of the 25 Gauge Technique During Successive Surgeries for Retinal Detachment with Vitreo Retinal Proliferation (VRP)

Jean Pierre Hubschman Saint Jean de Luz, France The 25 G vitrectomy technique has been available in Europe for a few months. This technique allows for a vitreo-retinal surgery which is less intrusive. As a matter of fact, the use of 25 gauge trans-conjonctivo-scleral micro guiding canulas enables surgeons to introduce into the vitreo-retinal area the different tools (forceps, hooks and probes..) to perform surgery. At the end of the...

Why using the Illuminated Scleral Depressor in the Peripheral Vitrectomy Done by Wild Field Viewing?

Jean-Pierre Hubschmann Biarritz, France The wild field viewing system allows a considerable improvement of the visualization of the fundus, especially when there is a problem with a cataract or a small pupil. This system of visualization allows a good access to the middling periphery but is problematic when making a very peripheral vitrectomy. In fact, this bimanual (intra-ocular) vitrectomy does not allow the operator to make...
