Gene context of Phacoemulsification

  • AIMS: This study investigated the effect of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in patients with severe intracameral fibrin after extracapsular cataract extraction or phacoemulsification with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation [28].
  • PARTICIPANTS AND INTERVENTION: We assessed the development of RD in 930 eyes from 930 subjects (mean age = 62.5 +/- 8.5 years) affected by very high myopia (between -15 and -30 diopters) undergoing cataract surgery after uncomplicated phacoemulsification (cataract-subjected [CS] eyes) [29].
  • METHODS: The authors performed a retrospective chart review of 126 consecutive eyes of 126 patients with dislocated lens fragments after phacoemulsification, managed with pars plana vitrectomy at Associated Retinal Consultants of Michigan. These eyes were operated on from January 1986 through January 1996 [30].
  • No significant correlation was found between RD and PC IOL manufacturer, phacoemulsification (PKE), or primary discission [31].
  • There were no cases of iris aspiration into the working end of the phacoemulsification needle; however, the iris was aspirated into the ABS opening of the flared tip in 1 case [32].
