Effects of a modified vitrectomy probe in small-gauge vitrectomy: An experimental study on the flow and on the traction exerted on the retina

Retina | September 12, 2017

Rizzo S, et al. - This study is performed to investigate the impacts of a modified vitrectomy probe in small-gauge vitrectomy. The modified probe could be helpful in vitreoretinal surgery. It allows for faster vitreous removal while minimizing tractional forces on the retina. Additionally, any available probe can be modified by creating a hole in the inner duct.
