Anterior chamber was filled by sodium hyaluronate (3.0%), and a 4.0-5.0 mm anterior continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
was performed by using a capsulorhexis
Long-term results of phacoemul-sification combined with primary posterior curvilinear capsulorhexis
However, this device only has a capsulorhexis
stage and not the other modules available in the Eyesi[R] simulator.
A major incision of 2.4 mm in size was made in the cataract surgery, and for stabilization of the anterior chamber and endothelial protection, 3% sodium hyaluronate, 4% chondroitin sulfate (Viscoat), and 1% sodium hyaluronate (Provisc) were used during capsulorhexis
and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.
It is generally advised that primary posterior capsulorhexis
(PPC) should be performed in children younger than 4 years of life, since the risk of developing PCO even if posterior capsule remains intact is 100%, due to more reactive inflammatory response in younger age [20, 39, 40].
Cataract surgery requires sufficient mydriasis, to facilitate capsulorhexis
or capsulotomy, phacoemulsification, and finally intraocular lens insertion.
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
. The inner lens is then broken up using a phacoemulsification procedure and aspirated out.
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.
TB is employed in the course of cataract surgery to visualize the anterior capsule during capsulorhexis
After sterile preparation, a 2,2 mm clear corneal incision, intracameral lidocaine, intracameral hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (Acryvisc[R], Zeiss, Oberkochen, Deutschland), and 55.5 mm continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
were followed by phacoemulsification performed at the same phacomachine (Millenium[R], Bausch & Lomb Storz) in all patients, aspiration irrigation, and hydrophobic IOL implantation.
The phacoemulsification was performed from 2.4 mm scleral tunnel and then the lens capsule was grasped and removed by 23-gauge capsulorhexis
forceps from the corneal side port.
After clear cornea incision (knife 2.4 mm) and paracentesis, continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis
was performed using forceps.
