transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy
Aim : To evaluate the usefulness of the newly designed 25-gauge (25-G) microcannula for transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV). Methods : 25-G TSV was performed on 20 consecutive eyes with the newly designed 25-G microcannulas. We studied usefulness, intraoperative and postoperative complications in these cases.
Results : No complications were recognized during surgery. Postoperative complications included blebs in five eyes, vitreous hemorrhage in one eye, high intraocular pressure (more than 22 mmHg) in one eye and a retinal tear in one eye. No eyes with low intraocular pressure ( less than 10 mmHg) were noted.
Conclusions : This microcannula for 25-G vitrectomy is thought to be very useful and effective for performing 25-G vitrectomy safely.
