1. Evaluation of Wound Closure in Oblique 23-gauge Sutureless Sclerotomies With Visante Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To investigate the in vivo real-time wound morphology of fresh 23-gauge sutureless oblique sclerotomy wounds with anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT).Design: Prospective, observational case series.Methods: Subjects underwent three-port pars plana vitrectomy with a 23-gauge trocar/cannula microincision surgical system at the Cole Eye Institute. All incisions were created in an oblique (aka beveled or angled) fashion. The incisions were imaged with the Visante OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA) device on postoperative days 1 and 8. The main outcome measure was wound structure (eg, presence of gaping) as evaluated with OCT. Surgical and ocular parameters ...
