Silicone Oil in Vitreoretinal Surgery by R. Zivojnovic

By R. Zivojnovic

With this e-book, Dr. Zivojnovic offers to the ophthalmic group the lengthy awaited targeted document of his surgical techniques and operative recommendations within the box of vitreoretinal surgical procedure. it's attention-grabbing to learn how his options for the therapy of complex retinal detachments advanced from the intra­ ocular use of silicone oil to a mixture of vitreous surgical procedure with silicone oil tamponade. the next move was once surgical operation of the retina itself. It takes an unconventional brain to wreck significant taboos and to kingdom the retinotomies and retinectomies are important if scar tissue can't be surgically got rid of and that buckling methods aren't any longer essential to deal with retinal breaks. This ebook discusses using silicone oil in vitreoretinal surgical procedure. Silicone oil tamponade has been confirmed to be an enormous breakthrough in vitreoretinal surgical procedure and the suggested effects converse for themselves. The reader can have the influence that silicone is assumed to be indispensible for the majority instances present process this kind of surgical procedure yet this modality is used to regard serious situations the place the possibilities of luck are drastically more suitable by utilizing silicone oil.
