Advantages:

Rhexis of posterior capsule via pars plana by using 25G instrumentarium is more suitable for patients, who have risk factors for usual polishing of posterior capsule or for Nd YAG capsulotomy.

Methods:

We use usual instrumentarium for 25 G vitrectomy. We perform only one sclerotomy in pars plana area and we make posterior capsulotomy using 25 G vitrectomy. Sclerotomy is sutureless.

Effectiveness / Safety:

According to our experience this method is safe and effective in patients with high myopia or in patients where we could presume instability of zonules, e.g. patients after pars plana vitrectomy or after complicated cataract surgery.
