Abstract

Purpose: : To identify complications and evaluate postoperative visual results from a newer surgical technique.

Methods: : We conducted a retrospective review of 100 consecutive 25-gauge surgeries performed by two surgeons at one institution over a period of 18 months with at least six months follow-up.

Results: : Mean visual acuity improved from 20/376 to 20/111 postoperatively (P<0.001). No intraoperative complications were identified.

Conclusions: : 25-gauge transconjunctival sutureless surgery may be a safe and effective alternative for certain vitreoretinal procedures.

Keywords: vitreoretinal surgery • clinical (human) or epidemiologic studies: outcomes/complications • retina
