25-gauge Vitrectomy Probe: A Swiss Army Knife

Yannek I. Leiderman, MD, PhD, demonstrates his use of a 25-gauge vitrectomy probe as a multipurpose tool, noting that the 27-gauge cutter is even more effective. By adjusting the fluidics setting and utilizing a low cut rate, Dr. Leiderman is able to simulate the functions of vertical scissors using the cutter. The panelists provide insight to an audience question regarding how their approach to membrane dissection has changed with the advent of beveled probes.
