The bell pepper experiment: introducing a novel self-sealing “screwcut” incision for sutureless transconjunctival vitrectomyL.-O. Hattenbach
Flattened sclerotomies are an essential step in ensuring postoperative wound stability in transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy. However, in complex cases involving complete vitrectomy with shaving of the vitreous base, laser application and peeling of surface membranes, conventional angled incisions often leak at the end of the procedure. Here, we present a novel curved and twisted (screw-like=“screwcut“) self-sealing incision technique using a 23-gauge one-step microcannula array with sharp solid trocar blades.
