Small Gauge Vitrectomy
What Is a Small Gauge Vitrectomy?
Small gauge vitrectomy, also known as minimally invasive vitreous surgery, is based upon the desire for less invasive approaches that achieve optimal clinical outcomes. The goal to reduce the duration of surgery and minimize trauma has led to developments in surgical techniques and instrumentation.
Reduction in the incision size has lead to many benefits. The technique has shown to decrease surgical time, decrease postoperative inflammation, and lead to a faster recovery.
