Vitrectomy technique in anterior segment surgery.
  1. J. J. Kanski and

    Instruments designed primarily for vitreous surgery were used in 74 anterior segment operations. In each case the instrument was introduced into the eye through a limbal incision. This preliminary report shows that this new approach offers several advantages over conventional methods in selected cases. It is of particular value in the management of presenile and complicated cataracts and in the removal of capsulo-lenticular remnants and pupillary membranes. A larger number of cases and longer follow-up are necessary to define further the specific indications and limitations of this technique.
