Pars plana vitrectomy in combination with intraocular tamponade with silicone oil is a standard technique in the treatment of complex retinal detachment. Although the use of silicone oil has improved the results of retinal detachment surgery, its removal is recommended due to the ocular complications related to its long term use. However, retinal redetachment can occur after silicone oil removal.

In a retrospective analysis of the clinical data, the frequency and timing of revision surgery due to retinal (re-)detachment was studied in patients undergoing complete silicone oil removal surgery f...
To assess the efficacy of perfluorodecalin (PFD) or Densiron 68 heavy silicone oil (HSO) in the management of inferior complex retinal detachment recurrence.
To evaluate the visual and anatomical outcomes of reoperations following failure of pneumatic retinopexy (PR) for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment repair and compare the different surgical techniques...
1) To evaluate factors governing flow of subretinal fluid and validate Lincoff rules (LRs) in cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. 2) To identify cases of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment wher...
Silicone oil has been used as a surgical tool in complicated retinal detachment surgery. There are some complications occurring in pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade. Silico...
The purpose of the study is to compare the safety, intraocular adverse effects and the anatomic and functional outcome with two endotamponade silicone oil after a 3-month in complex inferi...
Patients are required to position prior to retinal detachment surgery. We seek to see whether there is a correlation between the performed positioning and retinal detachment progression/re...
The study aimed to investigate the effectivity of bupivacaine 0,5% as post-operative analgesia in intravitreal silicone evacutaion surgery
A randomised controlled trial to evaluate the effect of face-down posturing on retinal displacement and distortion following retinal detachment repair.
Organic siloxanes which are polymerized to the oily stage. The oils have low surface tension and density less than 1. They are used in industrial applications and in the treatment of retinal detachment, complicated by proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
Separation of the inner layers of the retina (neural retina) from the pigment epithelium. Retinal detachment occurs more commonly in men than in women, in eyes with degenerative myopia, in aging and in aphakia. It may occur after an uncomplicated cataract extraction, but it is seen more often if vitreous humor has been lost during surgery. (Dorland, 27th ed; Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p310-12).
Removal of the whole or part of the vitreous body in treating endophthalmitis, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment, intraocular foreign bodies, and some types of glaucoma.

Mild to fulminant necrotizing vaso-occlusive retinitis associated with a high incidence of retinal detachment and poor vision outcome.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
