Fifteen diabetic patients had either vitrectomy alone or vitrectomy with lensectomy. Six nondiabetic eyes were also included in this study. The average cell loss was between 2.3% and 3.9% in all cases. This difference was not statistically significant from the preoperative measurements of endothelial cell counts. These data suggest that pars plana… CONTINUE READING
