Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluation of the safety and the usefulness of our "You's bottle" that we have invented for sampling vitreous.

We performed the vitreous sampling with our collection bottle in 13 patients who had undergone vitrectomy for diabetic retinopathy. We observed the usefulness and complications after sampling. Collected vitreous was used for analysis of protein components.
RESULTS
There was no complication associated with collection bottle. The analysis of proteome was successful.
CONCLUSIONS
Our study showed that "You's bottle" might be a useful tool for the research of vitreous.
