Mild striate keratopathy
developed in 12 eyes that was resolved when patients were reviewed on day 3.
Hypertonic saline was used in cases of striate keratopathy
. Post-operative follow-up was done at discharge, after 1 week, 4-6 weeks and after 12 weeks.
In a study by Mohinder Singh,12 post-operative complications encountered were post-operative uveitis, inflammatory deposits on the lens implant surface and striate keratopathy
. Other complications were Hyphaema, Iris Implant adhesions and Pupillary block glaucoma.
Striate keratopathy was noted in 1(1.6%) case of study group, in which second attempt was made to remove nucleus.
In Controls Observations Striate keratopathy 1 (1.6%) 2 (3.3%) Air bubble in AC 8 (13%) Irregular pupil 2 (3.3%) 2 (3.3%) Leak through side port 1 (1.6%) Lens matter 1 (1.6%) 2 (3.3%) PCO 4 ( 6.6%) 6 (10%) Descemet's separation 8 (13%) postoperative visual 6/12 to 6/9 Cf 4 mts.
The cornea had striate keratopathy
with stromal corneal oedema.
Table of Postoperative complications showed Hyphema in 3(6.0%), Striate Keratopathy in 13(26.0%), Anterior Uveitis in 11(22.0%), Posterior tear with Vitreous loss in 5(10.0%), Cortical remnants in 6(12.0%), Subluxation of IOL in 2(6.0%) and Optic Atrophy in 6(12.0).
Our study Postoperative complications were Hyphema in 6.0%, Striate Keratopathy in 26.0%, Anterior Uveitis in 22.0%, Posterior capsular tear with Vitreous loss in 10.0%, Cortical remnants in 12.0% and Subluxation of IOL in 6.0%.
Particular attention was paid to condition of filtering bleb, cornea for striate keratopathy
or edema, anterior chamber for depth and contents, pupil for reaction and shape, and lens.
was present in 2% cases in M-MSICS group while it was present in 15% cases in C-MSICS group (statistically significant, p value 0.01).
Most common postoperative complication among 2 groups was striate keratopathy
. It was observed in the immediate postoperative period and disappeared at follow up at 2 weeks.
2) showed that a major percentage (26.2 %, 108 eyes) suffered from mild iridocyclitis followed by transient corneal edema (20.9 %, 86 eyes), and striate keratopathy
(12%, 50 eyes).
