Vitrectomy Surgery In Bijapur​

Bijapur is a city located in the southern state of Karnataka. The city has a population of over 1 million people and is home to several major medical institutions, including the Mantracare. Vitrectomy surgery is a common procedure performed at many medical facilities in Bijapur.

A vitrectomy is a surgical procedure that removes excess fluid and debris from the inside of the eye. This can be done in order to restore sight to patients who are suffering from an eye condition called macular edema. Macular edema is caused by increased pressure inside the eye due to swelling or accumulation of fluid. This can lead to decreased vision and ultimately complete blindness if not treated promptly.

Vitrectomy surgery can be performed on either the left or right side of the eyes. In most cases, the surgeon will first remove any excess blood vessels that may be causing the swelling in the eye. They will then use a special tool called a vitrector to remove the excess fluid and debris from the inside of the eye. After removing all of the excess material, the surgeon will stitches the eye closed and reseal any broken blood vessels.

Types of Vitrectomy

There are three main types of vitrectomy: pars plana vitrectomy (PPV), transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy (TSV), and endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach.

PPV is the most common type of vitrectomy, and it involves removing the entire macula with a surgical incision in front of the iris.

TSV is a less invasive procedure that removes part of the macula using a small incision in the side of the eye.

Endoscopic subretinal or epiretinal approach is an extremely rare technique that uses an instrument called a percutaneous transluminal angioplasty catheter (PTCA) to restore blood flow to the damaged area within the retina.
