In difficult retinal detachments, the control of Silicone / Fluid exchange and the safety with which the maneuver is carried out are the two main goals to obtain.


At the end of the surgery, especially in giant tears, the usual management is very difficult and risky, especially when one performs the PFCL / Silicine Oil exchange. The simple technique illustrated in this paper allows the injection of heavy Silicone Oil on the posterior pole with a 20 Gauge needle while the intraocular liquid is drained off through the infusion.
