Low viscosity silicone oil as infusion fluid in vitreous hemorrhage

DOI: 10.3207/2394001750

In vitrectomy of massive vitreous hemorrhage the view is typically compromised by stirred blood. In order to speed up the procedure saline as infusion fluid is replaced by very low viscosity silicone oil. The silicone has the advantage not to mix with blood. At the same time all vitrectomy procedures can be performed as like under saline. The much improved view into the eye should shorten the procedure. In the end the silicone oil as infusion fluid is being exchanged here against standard 2000 cSt silicone oil as tamponade agend.
