Combined Sutureless Vitrectomy and Phaco Free Cataract Surgery

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, Retina | Posted 8/3/2012

Jorge Garduño, MD, and Leopoldo Garduño, MD, present a diabetic patient with a cataract and vitreous hemorrhage. They begin the case by making sclerotomies with a 23G microblade and place trocars. They enter the eye with a self-sealing sclerocorneal tunnel and stain the anterior capsule. The cataract is chopped the Garduño Trisector and removed through the scleral tunnel without the need for ultrasound energy. Then, they use a reusable vitrectomy system to manage the vitreous hemorrhage.
