Silicone Oil Removal Using 23 G TSV with External Suction Pump

The procedure consists of three-port transconjunctival insertion of 23-gauge microcannulas. An inferotemporal cannula is connected to an infusion line and infusion pressure was controlled by air-pressurized infusion (VGFI: Vented Gas Forced Infusion by Accurus, Alcon) at 40-45 mmHg. We connected right-handed superior cannula to tubing adaptor from Total Plus Pak® (Alcon, Fort Worth, USA) wrapping 23-gauge microcannula entirely and used...
