Sub-ILM Deposits of Silicone Oil Bubbles complication vitrectomy in Optic Pit

DOI: 10.3207/3475148642

The surgeon who performed the vitrectomy and silicone oil fill and silicone oil removal in optic pit was uncertain whether the central silicone oil bubbles were under the retina. Subretinal oil has been described in conjunction with silicone oil surgery of optic pits. In this case however the bubbles were entangled between retina (macula) and ILM. The ILM could be stained and removed over the attached macula. The oil bubbles were aspirated and PFCL was injected transiently to allow adhesion of eventually undetected remnants of silicone oil from the surface of the macula.
