Role of blood components in ocular silicone oil emulsification. Studies on an in vitro model.

Abstract

PURPOSE To develop an in vitro model for silicone oil emulsification and to explore the blood components involved in this process. METHODS The capacity of various blood components to support silicone oil (1000 CS) emulsification was studied by applying 0.5 ml oil on top of 0.5 ml saline containing various blood components. Each tube was sonicated for 150… (More)
