BACKGROUND: To compare pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with 1300 cs silicone oil and scleral buckle (SB) vs PPV with Oxane HD tamponade for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) with inferior retinal breaks (IRB). METHODS: Twenty eyes of 20 consecutive patients with primary inferior RRD and PVR >or=CP2 were alternatively assigned to PPV and 1300 cs silicone oil and segmental SB in the inferior periphery (group 1, n = 10) or PPV with Oxane HD (group 2, n = 10) in order of presentation. Silicone oil/Oxane HD removal was performed 12 weeks after surgery. Subjects were followed up for 6 months from oil removal. RESULTS: Operative time was lower in Oxane HD group (P = 0.012). In both groups, the retina was primary reattached at the third month after oil removal in nine eyes (90%). At the end of follow-up, retina was reattached in nine eyes (90%) in group 1 (including one eye with oil in situ), and in eight eyes (80%) in group 2 (P > 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Silicone oil+SB and Oxane HD appear equal for primary RRD with IRB, but a large multi-centre study is required. Oxane HD permitted a reduced operative time.
