This is a retrospective chart review of 32 consecutive 23g and 25g cases. The indications for surgical intervention were macular hole (stage 4) (n = 22) and macular epiretinal membrane (MEM) (n = 10). Brilliant Blue G and Tripan Blue were used to stain the membranes.

The physicians found minimally invasive vitreoretinal surgery (MIVS) to be an effective and safe surgical technique in the management of macular hole and macular epiretinal membrane surgery. This minimally invasive technique appears to decrease the operating time and improve patient comfort.
