Sutureless vitrectomy: techniques of self-sealing sclerotomies
Different techniques of creating self-sealing pars plana sclerotomies are described. This type of wound construction has many advantages. Sudden change of intraocular pressure during operation is reduced, which in turn minimizes the ensuing complications like intraoperative bleeding, retinal and vitreous herniation. Operative time is reduced. Suture problems are avoided. Further modification of the techniques to prevent potential complications is discussed.
