Outcomes of 20 and 23-gauge Combined Transconjunctival Pars Plana Vitrectomy

In a retrospective study, a combined 20 and 23-gauge pars plana vitrectomy procedure was performed in 21 eyes for various indications and proposed as a transition procedure to 23-gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy. Through use of combination of procedures postoperative complications, surgical trauma and healing time was decreased; operating time was reduced; costs were decreased.
