Hypotony Following Intravitreal Silicone Oil Removal in a Patient With a Complex Retinal Detachment With Giant Retinal Tear.

Cureus 2021 Jul 14;13(7):e16387. Epub 2021 Jul 14.

Ophthalmology, Korgialenio-Benakio General Hospital, Athens, GRC.

Postoperative ocular hypotony after silicone oil removal in complex cases of retinal detachment is a complication that can occur in about 20% of cases and can prevent the successful management of retinal detachments. Thus, it is critical to understand the mechanisms of hypotony and the potential interventions that can be done in order to avoid irreversible tissue damage. We present a case of a 35-year-old man who underwent intraocular surgery for removal of silicone oil tamponade following a combined scleral buckling and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) surgery for a rhegmatogenous retinal detachment associated with a giant retinal tear.
