The procedure involves a small self-sealing incision on the cornea, followed by an opening created on the anterior capsule of the lens known as a capsulorhexis
Evaluating teaching methods of cataract surgery: Validation of an evaluation tool for assessing surgical technique of capsulorhexis
However, contraction of the capsulorhexis
orifice as a result of fibrosis may cause IOL dislocation and associated refractive changes.
The technique of continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
(CCC) allows placement of IOL in the natural anatomical position.
Among the areas they consider are managing capsulorhexis
and complications, soft and mature cataract management and complications, intraocular lens implantation in the absence of adequate capsular support, machine management in complicated cases, toxic anterior segment syndrome and endophthalmitis, and prevention pearls and damage control.
4 mm) and paracentesis, continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
was performed using forceps.
In most eyes, ECCE was performed using the W-shaped incision [Figure 1],[sup] followed by a continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
The routine surgical procedure for congenital cataract is to perform continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
(CCC), aspirate the soft lens matter, perform posterior circular capsulorhexis
and remove the anterior vitreous.
20,21] Recently, it has also been shown that phacoemulsification with continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
(CCC) induced a less severe blood-aqueous barrier breakdown than extra capsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with a linear capsulotomy.
A continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
was performed and all of the eyes received intracameral injections of two viscoelastic substances (Viscoat--Alcon labs, SP, Brazil; Metilcelulose 2%--Ophthalmos, SP, Brazil) to maintain the chamber and protect the endothelium.
was performed using a pair of capsulorhexis
forceps or a bent 27-gauge needle (Figure 1(c)).
But the smaller diameter of the capsulorhexis
meant that Kathy didn't get a 6-mm clear aperture when she chose a 6-mm lens; the aperture was closer to 5 mm.
