The Flip Supracap Technique

  Channels: Cataract Surgery | Posted 7/29/2009

As Tal Raviv, MD, explains, flip supracap technique simplifies difficult cases and salvages complicated ones. It safely addresses loose zonules, a soft nucleus, a blown capsulorhexis, floppy irides, or cases when divide-and-conquer does not work. Many complications can be prevented by safely performing phacoemulsification outside the boundaries of the capsule. Because there is a learning curve to perform the flip supracap technique with minimal endothelial trauma, it should first be attempted on soft cataracts with deep chambers.
