RODRIGUEZ RODRIGUEZ, Beatriz et al. Miragel implant, apropos of 3 cases. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.3, pp.508-515. ISSN 0864-2176.

The long-term consequences of the use of Miragel implant as treatment of retinal detachment were set forth in this article. The characteristics of the Mirage explant during surgery and postoperatively in three cases, who went to the retinal service of "Amistad Algeria-Cuba" ophthalmological hospital in Djelfa, Democratic People's Republic of Algeria, were presented. They had been operated on by conventional retinal surgery and implanted a Mirage implant in France in the first half of the 90's. The predominant symptom was discomfort due to limited eye movements. Two cases presented with implant exposure and periocular sepsis. The implants were removed from the three patients; they fragmented very easily and made their extraction difficult in addition to marked muscular distension. The latter gradually disappeared and the eye movements were recovered in the postoperative phase.

Keywords : Miragel; conventional surgery; retinal detachment.
