Completing Surgery With a Compromised Rhexis

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 2/8/2010

If the capsulorhexis has been torn during cataract surgery while the nucleus is still in the bag, then you are faced with the sizeable challenge of completing surgery without the tear extending around to the posterior capsule. Brian Little, MD, covers in practical detail some of the techniques that enable safe removal of the cataract and allow IOL implantation when the capsulorhexis has been compromised. The techniques depicted are viscoexpression, ECCE, endocapsular phaco, and management of the Red hole in the nucleus.
