Indications and Timing of Vitrectomy in Trauma
An exact statistical evaluation and comparative investigations are exceedingly difficult in posterior segment trauma due to the large number of diverse parameters which vary from case to case. Examples of these are the extent and localization of the injury, the quality of the first repair, the distance in time between the accident event and adequate treatment of sequelae in the posterior segment, increasing negative selection of the patients, etc. The diversity of the clinical pictures resulting from this is confusing. Clinical observations in vitrectomy as well as on different injury models in animal experiments have been of decisive assistance in understanding the principles of normal and disturbed wound healing and its clinical correlates. They have enabled inferences to be made from these principles for an appropriate specific therapy.
