Indications, results and complications in 90 consecutive cases of intravitreal silicon injection are reported. Intravitreal silicon injection was performed according to the principles described by J. Scott. The patients, mostly cases which were inoperable with standard techniques, underwent surgery in the period between the beginning of 1978 and the end of 1979. The follow-up period was between five months and two years. An anatomic success was achieved in about 70% of the cases. The intraoperative complications were mostly hemorrhages and new retinal tears. Most of the late complications, such as cataract and glaucoma, could be surgically treated. The advantages and disadvantages of this procedure are discussed.
