Posterior vitrectomy / vitreoretinal keyhole surgery 23/03/2013

Retinopatia diabetica

Vitreoretinal keyhole surgery allows the surgical treatment of pathologies affecting the posterior part of the eye. Many advances have been achieved over the last few years, both in the technology of the equipment used and also in the design of endoocular instruments, making surgery much safer and more effective. This technique is normally used to treat pathologies such as epiretinal membrane, macular holes, retinal detachment and secondary complications to diabetic retinopathy, among others.
