Complications of Sutureless Pars Plana Vitrectomy Through Self-sealing Sclerotomies

Arch Ophthalmol. 1998;116(1):119. doi:

We read with enthusiasm the article by Chen1 in the October 1996 issue of the ARCHIVES. Scleral wound complications such as bleeding or fibrovascular proliferation are not infrequent in vitreoretinal surgery, and their consequences may be serious.2 Pars plana vitrectomy through a scleral tunnel incision may notably reduce the prevalence of such complications. The sutureless technique may reduce the duration of the surgery, and it may be more comfortable for the patient.
