Double Endotamponade with Perfluorodecalin and Silicone Oil in Retinal Detachment Surgery: An Experimental and Clinical Study

Background: Silicone oil tamponade of vitreous cavity (VC) is widely used in the surgery of retinal detachments. Tamponade quality determines anatomical outcome. For a variety of reasons it is practically impossible to create an ideal tamponade with silicone oil. “Conventional” silicone oil floats upwards in the vitreous cavity. This results in a good tamponade of the upper retina, but leaves the lower retina without an effective...

Closer Look at Physical Properties of PFCL and Silicone Oil

Advantages: To study physical properties of perfluorocarbon liquids and silicone oil in vitro. Methods: Samples of perfluodecalin and silicone oil were taken to study their physical properties under microscope in dormant conditions. Samples of emulsified silicone oil were studied under microscope in BSS drop to evaluate physical properties in dormant conditions. Additional sample staining with the use of stain Sudan III was performed....

Removal of a Submacular Perflurocarbon Bubble

Stratos Gotzaridis, Elias Georgalas (Athens, Greece) Advantages: The use of perflurocarbons liquids leads to unpleasant complications such as subretinal bubbles. The problem is getting more serious when the bubble is located in the area of foveola, which results in severe reduction of the vision. We present a case of removal of a subretinal foveolar perflurocarbons bubble. Methods: Anatomical and functional results of treatment of a case...

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2010/videos/TharyGhait_VP6_768K.flv Thary Ghait (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia) Advantages: Avoid the toxic effect of PFC On the retina. Methods: 20 Gauge pars plana vitrectomy was done for the remaining vitreous – removal of PFC by flute needle – removal of remaining ERM by forceps – removal of retained PFC from the AC. – Endolaser 360 – closure. Effectiveness / Safety: Safe no...

Using the PFCL-Air-Silicone Exchange System for the Surgical Treatment of Retinal Detachment

http://www.evrs.eu/medias/2008/congress/Using-the-PFCL-Air-Silicone-Exchange-System-for-the-Surgical-Treatment-of-Retinal-Detachment.flv Dmitriy Shkvorchenko Advantages: An improved technique for carrying out tamponading of the cavity at the end of surgical procedures is suggested. The silicone oil tamponade can be carried out in a so-called dry eye. This allows reduction in the percentage of retinal re-detachment in the postoperative...
