Abstract Details


to determine the risk factors of secondary cataract after phacoemulsification with primary posterior capsulorhexis.


Multidisciplinary Science and Tecnology Complex Eye Microsurgery named after Academician S.N.Fyodorov Federal State Institution Novosibirsk Branch


retrospective analysis of the data of 28 patients aged from 31 to 59 years with secondary cataract was held. All the operations were provided on the same methodic: Phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation and primary posterior capsulorhexis. OCT of vitreo-lenticular interface was made in 2 years after surgery.


secondary cataract risk factors were determined: small diameter of posterior capsulorhexis (2,0-3,0 mm); lens decentration in case of not a full coverage of anterior capsulorhexis of IOL; patients of young age with intact anterior hyaloids membrane, which is like a matrix for the cell grow. There were not determined posterior capsular opacity in case of a distance between anterior boundaries of the vitreous and edges of posterior capsulorhexis in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome.


There is the possibility of secondary cataract after phacoemulsification with primary posterior capsulorhexis in adult patients. The anterior hyaloid offers a scaffold for lens epithelial cells migration and regeneration. Risk factors are young age, a small diameter hole, the errors in the techniques of cataract surgery. No cases of secondary cataract in pseudoexfoliation syndrome with destruction of the anterior hyaloid
