Abstract Details


To discuss the intraoperative and postoperative complications of phacoemulsification combined with pars plana vitrectomy (PPV).


Department of Ophthalmology, Bozyaka Education and Research Hospital, Izmir, Turkey


This retrospective study consisted of 324 eyes of 290 patients with different vitreoretinal problems and cataracts. All surgeries were performed by single surgeon. Main outcome measures were the intraoperative and postoperative complications within 6 months


The most common intraoperative complication during phacoemulsification was iris prolapsus (8.6%), corneal edema (6.1%), hyphema (1.5%). The most common postoperative complication was posterior capsule opacification (18.5%) and elevated intraocular pressure (10.4), fibrinous reaction (5.8%), posterior synechiae (5.2%), and intraocular lens capture (3%).


Combining phacoemulsification with PPV did not increase complications significantly. Therefore phacoemulsification is safe and effective in treating vitreoretinal abnormalities coexisting with cataract.
