The article discusses research on vitreous cavity lavage by volume homeostatic fluid-fluid exchange as a viable management strategy for the removal of bloody content in eyes with post-vitrectomy diabetic vitreous hemorrhage. It references a study published in the 2009 issue of "Graefes Archives of Clinical Experimental Ophthalmology." The study involved a retrospective chart review of 88 eyes of 80 patients.
