Abstract

Experimental study was performed on 12 (24 eyes) rabbits. All animals were made back closed subtotal vitrectomy with the following thirty days tamponade with perfluorocarbon liquid - the right eye and "easy" silicone (left eye). Electron microscopic study was conducted after completion of tamponade through 7, 14 and 30 days. After thirty day tamponade with used compounds, the structure of the retina correspond to the same changes. However, these changes are reactive, not damaging and are reversible. Perfluorocarbon liquid may be considered as candidates for short-term tamponade of vitreous cavity.
