Abstract Purpose: 

To report on the use of Densiron (heavy silicone oil), a new endotamponade agent with proposed benefits in complex retinal detachments involving inferior proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Method: 

Retrospective case note review. Results: 

Ten cases (10 eyes) in which Densiron was used in eyes which had failed initial retinal detachment surgery. The overall success rate of long-term total reattachment was 70%. Mean preoperative visual acuity was logMAR 2.03 (SD 0.406), which improved to a mean postoperative visual acuity of logMAR 1.00 (SD 0.571) (P = 0.001). Conclusion: 

Densiron was well tolerated with few side-effects and appears to be a useful agent in patients with inferior proliferative vitreoretinopathy.
