Are We More Precise in Our Surgery? Comparison 20 Gauge and 23 Gauge Vitrectomy Technique in Macular Hole and Epiretinal Membrane Removal

ABSTRACT Purpose: The aim of our presentation is to compare a conventional 20ga technique and 23ga suturless vitrectomy (PPV) in patients who underwent surgery for diagnosis of macular holes. Two cohorts of patients were processed. The first group of patients underwent surgery between 2003 and 2005 with a classic 20ga PPV.

The ILM Peeling Effect in Wet-AMD

ABSTRACT Aim: To evaluate the role of small gauge PPV and ILM peeling in patients diagnosed with different type of CNV secondary to ARMD. Patients & Method: Nineteen eyes of 16 patients, with a mean age of 69.5±8.9 years, were retrospectively evaluated during a minimum of 24 months. Results: The mean baseline BCVA was 0.91 ± 0.12 logMAR, improved to 0.82 ± 0.19 logMAR after 12 months (p<0.01) and remained stable over 24...
