The vitreous humour is a clear gel positioned behind the iris (coloured part) and the lens, and in front of the retina (back of the eye). Vitrectomy is the surgical removal of the vitreous humour, a procedure needed to allow ophthalmic surgeons to diagnose and treat underlying disease in the eye.
Small gauge minimally invasive vitreous surgery (MIVS) allows ophthalmic surgeons to make smaller incisions, reducing the need for sutures and therefore increasing the speed of recovery.
This practical book presents ophthalmic surgeons with the most recent advances in MIVS, with emphasis on the differences between gauge sizes.
Beginning with an introduction to the technique and anaesthesia, the following chapters discuss MIVS for different disorders.
More than 190 full colour images and illustrations, and a DVD demonstrating MIVS procedures help retinal surgeons learn how to minimalise surgical trauma by reducing the gauge size of vitrectomy instruments.
