27 G Microincision Vitrectomy Surgery

Introduction: In the last years vitreoretinal surgery underwent major technical advances, especially with the most recent high frequency vitrectors and microincision systems with progressively smaller caliber, such as the 27-gauge vitrectomy system. This video aims to illustrate our pars plana vitrectomy experience with this small-gauge vitrectomy system. Material and Methods: Retrospectively we selected and analyzed all patients that...

Postoperative Changes in Astigmatism After Small Gauge TSV Versus 20 Gauge Conventional Vitrectomy

Pei-Kang Liu_SCIENTIFIC POSTER 2015 Purpose: Surgically induced astigmatism is an unwanted variable that can lead to poorer visual and refractive outcomes in patients undergoing vitrectomy. The study evaluates the changes in regular corneal astigmatism after transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (25-gauge or 23-gauge) and 20-gauge conventional vitrec tomy. Methods: The study is a retrospective comparative case series of vitrectomies...

New Applications for Microincision Vitrectomy Trocars

Vitreo-retinal surgery had incredible advancements over the last decades. Development of new vitrectomy machines, endoillumination and viewing systems and obviously the microincision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS), made this kind of procedures faster and safer. Essential for MIVS, trocars were developed allowing an easy and atraumatic transconjuntival entry to the posterior segment. In the recent years several improvements in this type of...

Comparison of Clinical Outcomes of 25 and 23 Gauge Vitrectomy for PDR

Poster Mehmet Onen Purpose: To compare anatomical and functional outcomes of 25 gauge and 23 gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV) for treatment of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Methods: Retrospective review of 81 consecutive eyes from 81 patients undergoing 25 gauge and 23 gauge TSV with a minimum of 6-month follow-up (vitreous hemorrhage (VH), n=51; tractional retinal detachment (TRD), n=30). Vitrectomy was...

Primary Repair of Rhegmatogenous RD Using 25 Gauge Transconjuctival Sutureless Vitrectomy

Poster Younghoon Lee Purpose: To evaluate 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy for primary repair of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Methods: A retrospective, non-comparative interventional case series including 37 consecutive eyes of 37 patients who underwent 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy to repair primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment was performed. Variables collected for the study were patient...
