Studies suggest that intraocular irrigating solutions which are iso-osmotic with normal aqueous fluids should be used with caution in diabetic patients undergoing vitrectomy since intraoperative lens changes have been observed.
There have been reports of corneal clouding and edema following ocular surgery in which BSS Sterile Irrigating Solution was used as an irrigating solution.
Irrigation or any other trauma may result in corneal swelling or bullous keratopathy.
Post-operative inflammatory reactions as well as incidents of corneal edema and corneal decompensation have been reported.
This irrigating solution should be used according to standard format for each surgical procedure. Note: Use an administration set with an air-inlet in the plastic spike since the bottle does not contain a separate airway tube. Follow directions of the particular administration set to be used. Remove the blue flip-off cap. Clean and disinfect the rubber stopper by using a sterile alcohol wipe. Insert the spike aseptically into the bottle through the target area of the rubber stopper. Allow the fluid to flow and remove air from the tubing before irrigation begins.
BSS® Sterile Irrigating Solution is supplied in a glass bottle using a grey butyl stopper and aluminum seal with a blue polypropylene flip-off cap.
