Transmuscular migration of 240 silicone encircling band

Publication date2006

The migration of an encircling band through the extraocular muscles is an extremely rare complication of retinal detachment surgery, which may give rise to ocular motility disturbances and trophic changes at the cornea–scleral junction. This report describes the cheese wiring of a 240 silicone encircling band through the superior and the lateral rectus muscles of a highly myopic eye over a period of seven years. Removal of the exoplant in local anesthaesia alleviated the visual symptoms with no surgical complications.
