Since their introduction by Chang et al. in 1987, perfluorocarbon liquids (PFCLs) have become a useful tool in vitreoretinal surgery. They are synthetic compounds with carbon-fluorine chemical chains that have specific physico-chemical properties, which make them valuable for the intraoperative management of the retina by simplifying vitreoretinal surgical(More)
PURPOSE Sutureless Transconjunctival 20 Gauge Vitrectomy (20G STV) is a technique that reduces the operating time and the post-operative inflammation. PATIENTS AND METHOD Eighty-four eyes underwent this new technique. Conjunctival diathermy over the ports before sclerostomy produced adhesions adequate to stop transoperative conjunctival chemosis. The MVR(More)
