Disease relevance of Capsulorhexis


High impact information on Capsulorhexis

  • INTERVENTIONS: Standard surgical procedure comprised an anterior capsulorrhexis, lens material aspiration via two side-port incisions, temporal tunnel incision, and multifocal IOL (SA40-N; Allergan, Irvine, CA) implantation in all eyes [2].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Capsular bag distention syndrome includes unexpected myopia and poor UCVA after cataract surgery with lens implantation in cases involving a continuous capsulorhexis [3].
  • Incidence of PAS after capsulorhexis [4].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and biocompatibility of brilliant blue G (BBG) for capsular visualization for continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis [5].
  • RESULTS: Based on our scoring system, the lowest effective concentrations for capsulorhexis were ICG 0.25%, MB 0.10%, GV 0.01%, TB 0.10%, and FS 1.25% [6].
