Clinical Outcomes of Ultrahigh-speed 23 G with Duty Cycle Control System in the Treatment of PDR Complicated by Tractional RD

Clinical Outcomes of Ultrahigh-speed 23 G with Duty Cycle Control System in the Treatment of PDR Complicated by Tractional RD Jung Ho Lee Advantages:          Dealing with vitreous of detached retina with fibrovascular proliferation and traction complicated by proliferative diabetic retinopathy is a challenge. A higher cutter rate may minimize vitreous turbulence by allowing only small bits of vitreous to enter the port,...

23-gauge Pars Plana Vitrectomy with Massive Circular Uveal Effusion: A Small Cut with Large Impact

Introduction: While peeling an idopathic epiretinal membrane with a standard 23-gauge vitrectomy the Infusion port dislocated inadvertently and caused a massive uveal effusion. Methods: By using an additional 20-gauge sclerotomy, it is possible to continue the vitrectomy, peeling the macular pucker and the inner limiting membrane in order to successfully complete the surgery. In this case, the 20-gauge sclerotomy serves as a drainage...

23 G Transconjunctival Vitrectomy Techniques in Complicated Retinal Detachment

Hassan Mortada (Cairo, Egypt) Advantages: To evaluate the efficacy of using only 23g transconjuntival sutureless vitrectomy in management of complicated retinal detachment over the past 3 years. The preservation of the integrity of the conjunctiva and sclera in these cases is of crucial importance, as these cases frequently need more than one operation, at least to remove silicone oil. This is a major advantage of 23G over 20G. The...

Analysis of the Visual Prognostic Factors of 23 Gauge Vitrectomy in Pseudophakic Retinal Detachment

Hülya Güngel, Isil Pasaoglu, Evre Pekel, Dilek Alp, Ozen Osmanbasoglu, Ece Uzun (Istanbul, Turkey) Methods: Forty-five patients with pseudophakic retinal detachment were analyzed retrospectively. Patients with a final visual acuity greater than 0,1 (snellen equivalent) were defined as having a good visual prognosis. Parameters examined were age, gender, duration of the symptoms, preoperative visual acuity, preoperative intraocular...
