Small-gauge vitreoretinal techniques have been shown to be safe and effective in the management of a wide spectrum of vitreoretinal diseases. However, the costs of the new technologies may represent a critical issue for national health systems. The aim of the study is to plan a Health Technology Assessment (HTA) by performing a comparative analysis between the 23- and 25-gauge techniques in the management of macular diseases (epiretinal membranes, macular holes, vitreo-macular traction syndrome). In this prospective study, 45-80-year-old patients undergoing vitrectomy surgery for macular disease were enrolled at the Torino Eye Hospital...

GOAL: The aim of this study was to establish anatomical and functional results of combined injuries of the anterior and posterior segment of the eye caused by penetration of the metallic foreign body. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The group consisted of 25 eyes with penetrating injury caused by metallic intraocular body. The age at time of the injury in the group was 14-68 years (36.8 +/- 10.9) and the average follow up period was 21.0 +/- 10.7 months. All injuries were treated by means of suture of the entering wound with immediate or postponed treatment of the pathologic findings in both segments during one or more procedures...
