We reviewed 71 cases of silicone oil injection for retinal detachment surgery with advanced proliferative vitreoretinopathy following failed vitrectomy between November 1982 and March 1986 in order to identify the anatomic and functional success rate and its complications. The causes of vitrectomy were as follows: advanced proliferative vitreoretinopathy after retinal detachment surgery and retinal vascular diseases(34 eyes), giant dialysis(10 eyes), severe perforating injuries and intraocular foreign bodies(17 eyes), and traction retinal detachments associated with proliferative diabetic retinopathy(10 eyes). In 71 cases of silicone oil injection, anatomic success rate was 34.8%(23/66) and functional success rate was 16.9%(16/71) and its complications were lens opacities(28.1%, 9/32) in phakia and corneal opacities(20.5%. 8/39) and increased intraocular pressure(17.9%, 7/39) in aphakia.
