Multi-Purpose Extraocular Forceps for Small Gauge Pars Plana Vitrectomy

  Channels: Retina | Posted 8/8/2011

The video demonstrates the use of Reichel-Chun forceps (Epsilon) for atraumatic extra-ocular manipulations, particularly trocar insertion and removal during small gauge sutureless pars plana vitrectomy. The beveled end of the forceps allows for strong purchase on the grasping end of the trocar, reducing the amount of twisting need to remove the trocar.
