To evaluate the effectiveness of 25-gauge TransconjunctivalSutureless Victrectomy(TSV) in highly myopic eyes with tractionalmaculopathy


25 Gauge TSV were performed in 13 patients(14 eyes) with myopictractional maculopathy. The patients underwent vitrectomy withposterior hyaloid and ILM removal and fluid-air exchange. Theaxial lengths ranged between 29.71-39.67mm


Foveal reattachment was achieved in all patients, improvementof visual acuity was accomplished in 80%. One patient developedmacular hole


Satisfactory anatomical and functional outcomes can be obtainedwith 25 gauge TSV in myopic tractional maculopathy. 25g TSVseem to be a procedure also useful in highly myopic eyes althoughthe surgery may be more difficult in eyes with an axial lengthgreater than 35 mm.
