    Hello people,

    I was continuing to enhance my knowledge on the methods to remove the
    epi-retinal layer/traction on the surface of the retina.

    The standard technique is vitrectomy.

    I came across this new enhanced technique called, 25-gauge
    vitrectomy. the trials and many articles found in the web shows this
    technique to be promising in many aspects for a particular bunch of

    I would like to receive your comments and anybodies experience with
    this technique.

    You may not perform such surgery.
    You will need a licinse to perform a surgery.
    You will need to go to med school, pass the exams, earn a degree, work
    for a couple of years as a resident before you are allwed to touch a
    patient with surgical equipment.
    By then you will be corrupt like all those that you now call idiots
    and stupid. Pehaps more.

    Raj, I believe that most of the retinal surgeons in my area (Chicago)
    now use the newer "sutureless" 23-gauge or 25-gauge equipment for many
    procedures. The newer equipment increases patient comfort post-
    surgery and speeds up recovery time. However, I'm not sure that it
    makes a difference in surgical results.
