Management of Subretinal Perfluorocarbon Liquid

Barbara Parolini, Grazia Pertile Advantages: Perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) may slip under the retina in complex cases of PFCL/silicone oil exchange with large retinotomies.  External scleral massage with a scleral depressor may help in extruding PFCL residues from the subretinal space. Methods: External scleral massage with scleral depressor in order to move the PFCL residues in the direction of the retinotomy and extrude the residues...

Use of Perfluorocarbon Liquid During Diabetic Vitrectomy

Janice C. Law, MD (Detroit, MI), Dean Eliott, MD (Los Angeles, CA) PURPOSE: The use of perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) has facilitated the treatment of complex retinal detachments. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the indications for PFCL use and the anatomic and functional outcome after PFCL use during pars plana vitrectomy for proliferative diabetic retinopathy. METHODS: Retrospective review of 520 consecutive diabetic...

Modified Technique for Improving Trypan Blue Staining of Epiretinal Membranes

Modified Technique for Improving Trypan Blue Staining of Epiretinal Membranes

Stanislao Rizzo, MD (Lucca, Italy), Michele Palla, MD (Pisa, Italy), Federica Genovesi-Ebert, MD, PhD (Pisa, Italy) SYNOPSIS In the air-filled vitreous cavity we have instilled first TB and subsequently liquid perfluorocarbon, that due to its high specific gravity pushes down the coloring agent, thus making it spread better on the retinal surface, allowing a more effective and complete ERM staining and removal.   VIDEO not...
