Abstract

We report on the construction and the function of a new microsurgical instrument for vitrectomy. The instrument is introduced into the vitreous cavity through a small scleral incision in the pars plana area. Microscope observation with slit-lamp illumination and a specially designed contact lens are used for this surgical procedure. Our clinical experiences and the indications are discussed.
