T he common thinking regarding surgical wounds is that “much smaller is much better.” Based on this concept, microincision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS) with 25or 23-gauge instruments has taken over from conventional 20-gauge vitrectomy in many cases, and the technology has evolved radically during the past several years. Along with the development of ergonomic instrumentation and new-generation vitrectomy machines, there has been a rapid adoption of smaller gauge instrumentation on a global scale… CONTINUE READING
