Changes of Physico-chemical Properties of Silicone Oil Associated with a Retinal Detachment

ABSTRACT The source material for our study was 23 samples of silicone oil, aspirated from the vitreous cavities of the eyes of patients after a tamponade about the rheumatogenic and traction retinal detachment. The average life of silicone oil in the eye was 3.5 months. In all cases, a 1300 cSt – viscosity Oxane silicone oil, Baush + Lomb, the UK, was used for tamponade. All samples were stabilized, resulting in colloidal systems...

Analysis of Amount and Density of Residual Silicone Oil Fragments in Vitreous Cavity After Retinal Detachment Surgery

ABSTRACT Purpose: To analyze the amount of residual silicon oil (SO) fragments in vitreous cavity after retinal detachment surgery. Methods: Twenty-six patients (26 eyes) (mean age 47. years) underwent ultrasound examination after SO removal (Oxane SO 1300, Bousch&Lomb). The amount of hyperechogenic silicone oil fragments in vitreous cavity was analyzed in four quadrants of multiple scans using method of neural circuits. Results: In all...

Intravitreal Levoxacin as Initial Treatment of Acute Exogenous Endophthalmitis Before PPV

The authors declare no conflict of interest. Purpose: To report the efficacy of intravitreal levofloxacin as an initial treatment of acute exogenous endophthalmitis on the stage of transportation of the patients to the vitreoretinal department and before early pars plana vitrectomy (PPV). Methods: Thirty patients (34 eyes) with exogenous endophthalmitis were included to this prospective non-randomized study. Fourteen patients (41.2%) had...
