High Infusion Flow in Mini Invasive Vitrectomy

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   In flow rate vitrectomy, the major concept is »isoflow » which means that you need to perform a vitrectomy with an equal flow for the infusion and for the aspiration. This is the mandatory condition to allow a vitrectomy in « isopressure”. This understanding leads you to an important concept which is that your infusion flow...

The Lower Temporal Trocar: Alternative Use

Media not available due to technical recording problems. EVRS is very sorry for the inconvenience.   Normally the lower temporal trocar is for the infusion cannula. I use it for: • Laser probe: to do laser for peripheral upper retina 10 and 2‘clock position • Cutter for shaving of the vitreous base in the upper retina between 10 and 2‘clock • Cutter, Forceps, scissors and pick for membranes dissection for membranes in the...

Salvage of a Suprachoroidal Infusion

Purpose: To define different approaches in case of suprachoroidal infusion cannula. Methods: Two different ways will be demonstrated to solve this problem. Effectiveness: Both of the solutions work quite safely. Take home message: This problem may occur during the learning curve especially in hypotonic eyes. Extra care should be taken to avoid this problem in such eyes. When it occurs, one of these ways can be chosen to solve the...

New Trocars

The use of infusion trocars in the mini invasive transscleral 23, 25 or 27 gauge techniques forces us to a double reduction of the infusion flow by introducing an infusion cannula in the transscleral trocar. Our new concept allows the direct fixation of the infusion pipe on the transscleral trocar, avoiding the double reduction. This induces a considerable lowering of the risk created by a too weak infusion...

46 Gauge Vitrectomy with Jumping Infusion for a Complete Vitrectomy

Cian Roberto, Tavolato Marco, Caretti Luigi, Galan Alessandro Purpose: To describe a new technique that allow to perform a complete vitrectomy with only two sclerotomy. Methods: In this single center, interventional case series comprised 5 eyes of 5 patients with posterior pole disease (2 eyes with hemovitreous, 2 with diabetic retinopaty, 1 with macular hole stage 4) who had two port 23 gauge vitrectomy with slit lamp illumination. The...

The Snowstorm Technique: Triamcinolone Suspension in the Infusion Bottle

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/The-Snowstorm-Technique:-Triamcinolone-Suspension-in-the-%20Infusion-Bottle.flv Enrico Bertelli Advantages: Triamcinolone Acetonide (TA)-assisted vitrectomy has been first described in 2000, and has become popular among vitreoretinal surgeons. Vitreous staining properties of TA suspension in the conventional use improve visualization of vitreous fibers and vitreoretinal interface. However they offer...
