• Rhesus monkey eyes that had undergone limited (core) and complete vitrectomies one day and two weeks after posterior penetrating injury were studied histologically. Following core vitrectomy, there was more intraocular inflammation and a greater degree of intraocular fibrocellular proliferation. Anterior vitreoretinal traction and traction retinal detachment were less common after complete vitrectomy.
