 Purpose: to perform clinical testing of perfluorocarbon liquid on the basis of perfluorodecalin with the possibility of intravitreal postoperative tamponade in patients with vitreoretinal pathology and explain the effectiveness of this practice. Material and Methods. Were evaluated anatomical and clinical results of vitrectomy with PFCL intravitreal tamponade in 105 (113 eyes) patients with severe vitreoretinal pathology. Three observation groups were distinguished: group I (in-traoperative and postoperative intravitreal tamponade by perfluorodecalin, national sample); group II (only intraopera-tive use of perfluorodecalin, foreign sample); group III (only intraoperative use of perfluoro-1.3- dimethylcyclohexane). Results. Retinal attachment in the group of patients with postoperative intravitreal tamponade was 97.1% (visual acuity increased in 71.5% cases). All cases of failure or redetachment, postoperative complications and cataract progression did not have a statistically significant association with postoperative intravitreal tamponade as risk factor (x2=0,316; X2=0,068; x2=0.061; x2=0.403, p>0.05). Conclusion. Clinical testing of perfluorocarbon liquid intravitreal tamponade on the basis of perfluorodecalin in patients with vitreoretinal pathology showed high anatomical and clinical results with a high probability of retinal attachment.
