BACKGROUND Inferior retinal detachment pathology can be difficult to manage due to inadequate tamponade with low specific gravity tamponade agents and the propensity for the development of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR). We report the efficacy and adverse effects associated with the use of perfluorocarbon heavy liquid as a short-term tamponade in managing such pathologies. METHODS Retrospective analysis of 17 eyes treated with short-term perfluoro-n-octane tamponade for complex… CONTINUE READING
