Cataract Surgery with Posterior Capsulorrhexis Rescue
4 months ago
This video demonstrates a rescue technique to allow standard capsular bag IOL placement in the presence of a posterior capsule tear. The eye had prior glaucoma shunt surgery and despite thorough hydrodissection and two sweeps of a wire snare, a cortex adhesion was still present and created a flap tear in the posterior capsule during cortex removal. The video shows the exact moment of the tear and the steps needed to complete a posterior rhexis to allow normal IOL implantation.
