Description
Microincision technology has changed the face of vitreoretinal surgery during the past decade. MIVS offers patients convenience and the possibility of faster recovery and visual rehabilitation. The field has changed quickly from the early 25-gauge systems to 23-gauge instrumentation that overcame many of the compromises of 25-gauge, and now with newer 25-gauge systems with stiffer instruments, better fluidics, and improved lighting. Furthermore, several recent advances in technology increase the ease of surgery, reduce complications, improve results, and expand the surgical indications of MIVS into the more complicated vitreoretinal pathologies. In addition, advent of newer wide-angle surgical viewing system allows the surgeons to perform the whole MIVS procedure more safely and more efficiently. However, complications still occur and its proper management is crucial to achieve good results. This symposium will discuss new instrumentation, complications, and techniques with MIVS.
