in thos group no PFCL was left in the eye and either SF6 or silicone oil was the definitive treatment at the time of the retinal detachment surgery repair.

Detailed Description:

a retrospective study wich compared 2 groups that had giant tear repair in one group, PFCL was left for few days as an intermediate measure until silicone oil or SF6 gas was used to reattach the retina ,and in the control group SF6 or Silicone oil were used, with no PFCL.
