Personal skills and competences:

Besides certificates and diplomas, Dr. Claudio has gained a lot of knowledge through his experience in the field as well as in life. He has always been fascinated by large eye injuries ranging from corneal transplant to complicated retinal detachment and has simultaneously treated them in the same operative session. He also advocates the microincisionale cataract surgery without sutures or anesthesia nor hospitalization. Another aspect that holds his interest is the minimally invasive surgery of the retina and macular diseases (macular edema, macular hole, macular pucker) without sutures. He has held and organized small cut surgery courses in Italy and abroad for both vitreous and the retina cataract surgery. The 27 gauge vitrectomy mininvasina was introduced on a trial basis in 2010 by a Japanese surgeon, Oshima.

He was invited to conduct a combined live surgery wherein he performed an associated cataract surgery at a retinal surgery with the minimally invasive 27 gauge technique in the SOI International Congress held in Milan in 2012. He made a direct intervention in the macular pucker Congress of the Italian Society of surgery Vitreoretinal (GIVRE) in 2013, followed by an intervention of diabetic retinopathy and vitreo to Ancona international congress in 201. He has given a lecture on the minimally invasive surgery using the 27 gauge technique and proliferative diabetic retinopathy during the EUROPEAN CONGRESS EURETINA in 2015 in Nice in France. He has participated in numerous conferences and courses in Italy and has represented us abroad as a speaker and as a surgeon. Additionally, he has published numerous articles in international journals.

It includes the theories, opinions and study by these professionals. Genotype-directed therapy-and Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in Press Clinical and Experimental Ohthalmology RANZCO Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists are some of the topics covered.

The use of 25-gauge vitreoctomy versus 23-gauge vitrectomy in the management of macular diseases is a comparative analysis done through a Health Technology Assessment model. Graziani C, C Panico , Botti G and Collin RJ have discussed Subperiosteal mid face lift, explaining its role in static lower eyelid reconstruction after chronic facial nerve palsy, in an article written on 20 June, 2011. The retinal detachment following 23-gauge vitrectomy surgery in idiopathic epiretinal membranes has been mentioned in Acta Ophthalmol written in February 2011. There are pitfalls in 23-gauge vitrectomy surgery such with regards to the size and its compatibility.
