Abstract Details


To show the effectiveness of use of mini-invasive 25/23 gauge system for the management of postraumatic soprachoroidal hemorrhages.


Domus Nova Hospital,Ravenna,Italy


We use anterior approach with 25 gauge re-flow and posterior drainage by means 25/23g vitrectomy cannulas combined vith 23g PPV and PFCL that was injected in all cases up to the ora serrata after completion of retinal maneuvers as needed to mechanically displace any left suprachoroidal fluid/blood. PFCL–silicon oil direct exchange was performed and filling it up completely.


Among the cases, that were contributed for the study, anatomic and functional results seem to be better with this new approach than with the conventional technique.


The 25/23 gauge systems allowed us to manage the selected pacients with large postraumatic soprachoroidal hemorrhages.The transconjunctival 27 gauge light helps us manage easily these difficult cataract surgery complications.
