What is Pars Plana Vitrectomy Surgery?

vitrectomyPars plana vitrectomy is a surgery that removes the eye vitreous or vitreous body (corpus vitreum) from the eye with surgical approach to the background of an eye. When it comes to some, when the thought of surgery is present we start to worry because of the outcome. In order to cast away your fear, we’ll try to briefly present one of the surgical techniques, pars plana vitrectomy – microsurgical operative technique that is performed at various retinal diseases.

As the most commonly surgery is conducted at the entrance of the eye part called the pars plana, so the operation is often called a pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) or abbreviated vitrectomy. First time we mentioned pars plana vitrectomy was in the last article about eye floaters, or myodesopsia. Pars plana vitrectomy is the most complex micro-surgical procedure for accessing to the depth of the eye, i.e. to treat disease at the rear segment of the eye.

Although few years ago many of retinal diseases were considered to be inoperable, today because of a vitrectomy we can successfully operate these diseases. These diseases include:

•    hemorrhage in diabetic retinopathy
•    blurring or various complications in vitreous
•    vitreous inflammation
•    hole at the point of clear vision (yellow spots)
•    foreign bodies in the eye after injury
•    inflammation of all layers of the eye (endophthalmitis) or changes in the structure of vitreous after cataract surgery, which can cause injury (swelling)

Vitrectomy Recovery

The surgery lasts one to two hours, but sometimes, in complex cases, it can last longer. Complications after surgery include – corneal clouding, infection, bleeding, cataract, glaucoma. Any of these complications can result in loss of vision or eye. The results of pars plana vitrectomy are in 80 per cent successful, and the final result depends on whether there is damage to the yellow spots and how much is the scope.

The result of the operation is better if the yellow spot is not affected by retinal detachment.  The pars plana vitrectomy recovery critical period lasts for two or three weeks, and it is very important to the patient during this period to comply with the instructions of doctors and medical staff.

Specifically, for first seven to ten days as long as possible patient should keep head tilted down so effect of silicone oils could hold retina permanently in a natural position. When it comes to vitrectomy for floaters, most doctors will not recommend doing it.
