    A NOVEL FINDING OF HYPERREFLECTIVE MATERIAL IN THE SILICONE-RETINA INTERFACE An Optical Coherence Tomographic and Histopathological Study

    Purpose: To describe novel findings of hyperreflective material in the silicone-retina interphase on spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging in eyes with silicone oil tamponade. Methods: Retrospective observational clinical study of consecutive patients who underwent primary pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. Repeat clinical examination and spectral domain optical coherence tomography macular imaging performed 3 months after surgery were evaluated to identify any macular pathologies, including formation of epiretinal membranes, intraretinal changes, subretinal fluid, and edema before scheduled secondary vitrectomy for silicone oil removal. Results: Eighty-two patients (mean age 54 years, range 22–89 ...
