Abstract Details


To evaluate the outcomes of pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade in post traumatic endophthalmitis


Department of Ophthalmology, SMS Hospital, Jaipur, India


50 cases of endophthalmitis secondary to trauma (24 wooden stick,12 vegetable matter,10 with iron foreign body, 4 needle stick) which underwent surgery between June 2011 and september 2012 were retrospectively studied. All patients underwent pars plana vitrectomy, intravitreal antibiotics and silicone oil injection. Corneal tear repair, foreign body removal were done wherever applicable. The mean follow up period was 5 months.


Resolved infection and attached retina at final follow up were seen in all cases of endophthalmitis secondary to wooden stick and vegetable matter injury. 3 cases (one secondary to foreign body and 2 to needle stick injury) had recurrent infection and subsequently total retinal detachment with no light perception


The above results suggest that silicone oil tamponade after vitrectomy for fulminant post traumatic endophthalmitis is an effective approach for management of such cases, achieving high rates of resolved infection and attached retina.
