Abstract

PURPOSE. To investigate surgical and functional results six or more months after silicone oil (SiO) removal in patients undergoing pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) and tamponade for various reasons. METHODS. Retrospective chart review. Inclusion criteria were recurrent retinal detachment with PVR grade C (R-RD), primary PVR grade C longer than 9 hours, recurrent vitreous hemorrhage in PDR (PDR-RVH) with traction RD, giant retinal tears (GRT) with PVR grade C and total RD with vitreous hemorrhage and hypotony in penetrating traumas (PT). Indications for removal of SiO included attached retina and intra-ocular pressure (IOP) more than 10 mmHg after 60 days or IOP more than 30 mmHg despite medication. RESULTS. Of the 212 patients undergoing PPV and SiO tamponade between 1994-1997, 91 met the inclusion criteria, 8 had incomplete charts so 83 eyes were included in the study. The mean interval between PPV and SiO removal was 163.1 ± 111.0 days and follow-up was 351.5 ± 148.6 days. At the time of SiO removal, 30.6% of phakic eyes had cataract, 14.4% keratopathy and 8.4% IOP more than 30 mmHg. At the last visit after SiO removal, 43.5% had cataract, 12.0 keratopathy, 6.0% IOP > 30 mmHg and 3.6% IOP
