A Novel Releasable Suture Technique for Prevention of Incompetent Wound Closure in Transconjunctival Vitrectomy

Yumi Song, Hee Yoon Cho, Byung Ro Lee In this video, a novel releasable suture technique that helps overcome postoperative incompetent wound closure is performed in small gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy. Postoperatively, at the office, the sutures are released under the slit lamp. Every wound is completely sealed. No eyes show postop hypotony. Our technique, which is simple to perform, can be advantageously applied to any gauge...

23 Gauge: Rate of Sclerotomy Closure & Postoperative Hypotony in 600 Cases

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/23-Gauge:-Rate-of-Sclerotomy-Closure-Postoperative-Hypotony-in-600-Cases.flv Grazia Pertile, Barbara Parolini Advantages: Performing a complete vitrectomy even in 23 G sutureless transconjunctival approach allow a very low rate of postoperative retinal detachment. At the same time the rate of sclerotomy closure is high and the occurrence of postoperative hypotony is rare. In this paper we report the...
