To evaluate the use of perfluoroethylcyclohexane (PFE) liquid during vitreoretinal surgery, retinal tolerance was tested by electroretinographic (ERG) and histologic study of rabbit eyes undergoing intravitreal placement of PFE for 48 hours. When PFE occupied the vitreous cavity, ERG amplitudes were decreased, probably because of electrical insulation by the liquid. Immediately after removal of the liquid, elevations of a and b waves occurred. Further improvements in the waveforms were recorded… CONTINUE READING
