Advantages:

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.

Methods:

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.
