Low viscosity silicone oil as infusion fluid in massive subretinal hemorrhage

DOI: 10.3207/1229232581

Vitrectomy with BSS infusion in massive intraokular hemorrhage is very tiring, because of the impedment of sight from the swirling-up blood. Here a silicone oil of very low viscosity - like 20 cSt - replaces the BSS infusion, does not mix with blood and allows a rapid removal of the blood from within the eye.
