Disease relevance of Cataract Extraction


High impact information on Cataract Extraction

  • OBJECTIVE: Our objective was to examine prospectively the association between carotenoid and vitamin A intakes and cataract extraction in men [6].
  • After age, smoking, and other potential cataract risk factors were controlled for, those with the highest intake of lutein and zeaxanthin had a 22% decreased risk of cataract extraction compared with those in the lowest quintile (relative risk: 0.78; 95% CI: 0.63, 0.95; P for trend = 0.04) [7].
  • Forty six patients received a topical application of a 0.3% norfloxacin (Zoroxin; MSD, Austria) solution into the lower fornix at different time intervals and frequencies before undergoing planned extracapsular cataract extraction [8].
  • Zeiss keratometry and TMS-1 topography analysis were performed before removal of the first suture (14+/-4 months) and at least 6 weeks after removal of the second suture (20+/-4 months), but before any additional surgery, such as cataract extraction or refractive keratotomies [9].
  • Retinal complications after cataract extraction in patients with high myopia [10].
