• Since hemostasis and passive suction to remove preretinal blood are important elements to the vitrectomy surgeon, a new disposable evacuation/cautery needle has been developed to accomplish these two objectives. This instrument allows the surgeon to clear the vitreous proximate to the bleeding site and cauterize the vessels without changing instruments.
