BackgroundPerfluorocarbon liquids (PFCLs) are used as intraoperative tools to stabilize the retina during vitreoretinal surgeries. Their use would be much facilitated if PFCLs were colored and not transparent. We describe the development of a colored PFCL for vitreoretinal surgeries.MethodsPerfluorohexyloctan (F6H8) was colored by adding a blue, biocompatible anthraquinone dye, and then mixed with perfluorodecalin (PFD) or perfluorooctane (PFO) at different volume percentages. The thus-obtained… CONTINUE READING
