OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical usefulness of the erbium:YAG (yttrium-aluminum-garnet) laser for vitrectomy and to compare it with a conventional mechanical vitrectomy system regarding the intraoperative parameters. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, clinical trial. PARTICIPANTS Thirty eyes of 30 patients underwent vitrectomy, 15 eyes in each group. METHODS For mechanical vitrectomy, a commercially available vitrectomy unit was used. The operating parameters, cutting rate (7 Hz = 420 cpm… CONTINUE READING
