  • TITLE: In Vivo Emulsification Analysis of 1000 cs and 5000 cs Silicone Oil after Rhegmatogenous Retinal Detachment Vitrectomy Surgery

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: To compare in vivo emulsification of silicone oil 1000 and 5000 centistokes (cs) after retinal detachment surgery. Design: Comparative non-interventional Retrospective study. Methods: Silicone oils from patients who underwent retinal detachment surgery were investigated using Spectrophotometer UV-Vis. Spectroscopically changes determine emulsification with the time of tamponade, inflammation, patients age and severity of retinal detachment. Results: We found significant difference on absorbance (p = 0.004) between used 1000 Centi stoke (cs) silicon oil (average wave length 2.51 nm; SD: 1.575 nm) and used 5000 cs silicon oil (average wave length 0.910 nm; SD: 0.564 nm). Conclusions: In vivo emulsification was higher in silicone oil 1000 compared to 5000 cs silicone oil after vitreoretinal tamponade 8 - 12 weeks due to retinal detachment surgery. Emulsification related to higher absorbance and lower transmittance in 1000 cs silicone oil. Inflammation may become a factor affecting this condition.
