Retained perfluorodecalin after retinal detachment surgery.

Journal Article

Liquid perfluorocarbons such as perfluorodecalin are widely used as intraoperative vitreous substitutes in certain complicated vitreoretinal conditions. Retained perfluorodecalin postoperatively has been reported to be associated with retinal damage and other complications. We report on a case of retained intraocular perfluorodecalin for eleven postoperative days after retinal detachment surgery with good anatomical and visual outcome after one year follow-up.
