The patient then underwent foreign body removal, lensectomy, and intraocular lens implantation.
(12) reported in 2005 that postoperative iridocyclitis occurred at a rate of 19% following pars plana lensectomy (PPL), PCIOL implantation and pars plana vitrectomy in 16 eyes of 12 patients.
Long-term follow-up after lensectomy with limited anterior vitrectomy and subsequent correction of aphakia with glasses or contact lens showed this procedure to be safe for children with hereditary ectopia lentis.
Moreover, compared to another study on scaffold epiretinal implantation in felines [14], the present approach did not include lensectomy. Consequently, the total invasion in the present procedure was only two 23G incisions and an 18G sclerotomy, which were almost the same as a general vitrectomy.
Seven patients had previously experienced anterior or total vitrectomy, and six patients had their cataract initially removed by lensectomy. Ocular comorbidities of the aphakic eyes were a corneal scar in four eyes, vitreoretinopathies in seven eyes, and posterior luxation of an originally sulcus-based three-piece foldable IOL (Canon-STAAR Preloaded IOL KS-3 (Ai) with a 6.0 mm optic and 12.5 mm tip-to-tip size) in one eye.
(7,8) Another example is the different approach required when carrying out cataract surgery or lensectomy in young children.
In the first decade the patient underwent lensectomy, vitrectomy and scleral buckling in each eye for total retinal detachment.
Most of these cases were given silicone oil tamponade or lensectomy at the same time.
His past ocular history was significant for blunt trauma to the same eye 15 years earlier, resulting in a ruptured globe, traumatic cataract, and traumatic retinal detachment for which he had undergone surgical repair with lensectomy, vitrectomy, and a scleral buckle placement.
We performed vitrectomy and lensectomy under general anesthesia with controlled hypotension.
Primary lensectomy or lens extraction was performed in 13 (37.14%) cases and secondary in 6 (17.14%) cases.
