Short Term Postoperative Tamponade Using Perfluorocarbon Liquid for Giant Retinal Tears
The purpose of the article is, to investigate the efficacy and safety of perfluorocarbon liquid (PFCL) ,as a short term postoperative tamponade for treating retinal detachment ,associated with giant retinal tears.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||Short Term Postoperative Tamponade Using Perfluorocarbon Liquid for Giant Retinal Tears|
|Study Start Date:||January 1998|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||June 2012|
patients in this group had the PFCL for a period of 7-10 days before it was replaced by SF6 gas or silicone oil
in thos group no PFCL was left in the eye and either SF6 or silicone oil was the definitive treatment at the time of the retinal detachment surgery repair.
a retrospective study wich compared 2 groups that had giant tear repair in one group, PFCL was left for few days as an intermediate measure until silicone oil or SF6 gas was used to reattach the retina ,and in the control group SF6 or Silicone oil were used, with no PFCL.
