In this case Dr. Martin Charles presents a patient with diabetic proliferative retinopathy. A 3 port 23 G vitrectomy is accomplished with the Constellation Vision System. A complete core vitrectomy is performed followed by a detachment of the posterior hyaloid without changing instruments using only aspiration. Proportional reflux is used as a water hose to remove the hemorrhage from the surface of the retina. Later staining of the ILM with brilliant blue G dye is performed and it is removed with the Grieshaber DSP ILM forceps using the Grieshaber DSP pneumatic handle.
