Résumé
Despite modern and sophisticated vitreoretinal techniques, the authors are convinced that an underreported patient group exists, for whom long-term silicone oil tamponade is unavoidable. We conducted a literature review of the current evidence base in order to provide guidance on the ocular tolerance and side effects of long-term silicone oil, weighing up benefits against complications as well as providing an outlook on future silicone oils with improved physical properties. We advocate the removal of silicone oil in all cases; however, one has to recognise that long-term silicone oil tamponade may have to be considered as a measure of last resort for selected patients. There is a clinical need to develop novel, emulsification-resistant tamponades.
