Mission Impossible - PDR, Retained Lens Fragment, and Cadaver Bone IOFB

A 64 year old monocular Russian man returns from the Ukraine with severe inflammation and decreased vision in his only eye. He has a history of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and a cataract. An IOFB is determined to be a cadaver bone implanted for glaucoma filtration. On top of that, the patient has retained lens material and a sulcus IOL. Szilard Kiss, MD; Nathan Radcliffe, MD; tackle this seemingly impossible mission.

Fantastic video! Let us know IOP and VA pre- and postop. :-)

Mission impossible? Was he 20/20 at the end? Lots of Hollywood glitz and no conclusion.

it would be interesting to know clinical ending features after all surgical procedures... basically, what was the final VA and IOP ?

Please avoid doing more of these videos with the theme music. Cute for the first 30 seconds then rather painful. Get to the point.

Great video! How in the world did this patient get sent out looking like that from Ukraine?

the lack of a va at the end makes me suspect that the vision is hand motion. oh well. but i admire the skill and the surgeon is commended for a very nice-looking eye. and the music is great, of course- what a great theme.
