PVR in the Superior Retinal Periphery after Tamponade by Heavy Silicone oil

DOI: 10.3207/2006902791

This eye originally had PVR retinal detachment in the inferior retinal periphery. It was at first treated by vitrectomy, retinectomy and standard silicone oil. After PVR recurrence under standard silicone oil typically in the inferior peripheral retina, heavy silicone oil was filled at the occasion of re-vitrectomy. The Film shows the end of the removal of heavy silicone oil and a partially detached retina, but this time in the superior retinal periphery. The vitreous base is contracted, similar to the condition before in the inferior periphery under standard silicone oil. After retinectomy and laser the eye is filled with 20% SF6 gas. The tamponading effect is here only required in the superior retinal periphery.
