Abstract Details


To compare the effectiveness of early 25g sutureless vitrectomy and intravitreal injections on visual acuity in case of post cataract surgery endophthalmitis. Complications were also evaluated


Kar's Eye Hospital, Mumbai, India


50 patients of post catarct surgery endophthalmitis were randomly divided into 2 groups with visual acuity better than hand movements. One group were given intravitreal injections of vancomycin, cefuroxime & dexamethasone & other group underwent immediate 25g sutureless vitrectomy followed by intravitreal injections. A/c tap and vitreous tap were done in all the patients and staining and culture was done


In group one out of 25 patients only 5(20%) patients improved. Remaining 20 patients (80%) underwent vitrectomy after 48 hrs. The difference in mean visual acuity at the end of one month in two group is statistical significant (p<0.5)


Early 25g sutureless vitrectomy followed by intravitreal injection is better way of treating devastating complication of catarct surgery with better visual recovery FINANCIAL INTEREST: NONE
