To show there are no limits in the use of mini-invasive transconjunctival surgery.


Several cases of particular and complex cases are shown (anterior segment complications, traumas, complex retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, ROP). The 25 and 23 gauge systems are used in a combined way (infusion 25g with 23g vitrectomy) in complex trauma cases.

Effectiveness / Safety:

Mini-invasive surgery is useful in complex cases: more are difficult more is suitable the little gauge of the instrument to move into the eyeball. Less conjunctival and scleral traumas help the patient for more quick recovery.
