Interface vitrectomy-a savior technique for vitreoretinal surgery

Advances in Ophthalmology & Visual System
Burak Turgut,1 Onur Catak2


Interface vitrectomy is a special vitrectomy technique based on performing the surgery at the interface between surface tension agents including air, liquid perfluorocarbon, or silicone oil and the retina. Interface vitrectomy technique allows good stabilization of the retina while preventing the increasing subretinal fluid and bleeding to interface during traction removal in vitreoretinal surgery. In this review, we aimed to summarize interface vitrectomy technique.
