Sutureless ECCE Aboard Mercy Africa

  Channels: General | Posted 6/30/2009

Operating aboard the Africa Mercy, part of Mercy Ships' fleet of floating hospitals that serve the developing world, Glenn Strauss, MD, performs a manual sutureless extracapsular cataract extraction via a long, funnel-shaped scleral tunnel. Adoption of the technique demonstrated in this video is beneficial for missionary work due to the reduced learning curve, increased efficiency, and lower risk of induced astigmatism.
