Abstract Details


To observed patients with XFS / XFG, operated for cataract and to analyzed surgical technique and complications rate.


Prospective study of all patients underwent for cataract surgery (10.2014- 12. 2014) and followed up 3 to 5 months.


Full eye examination was done in all patients, and in some of them VF, OCT, CCT, gonioscopy and endothelial microscopy. Surgical methods include: phacoemulsification of the cataract and extracapsular cataract extraction with IOL implantation .


196 patients were operated, 39 (20%) with XFS and 12 of them (6%) with XFG. According to the surgery: 165 patients (84%) with phaco and 31 patients (16%) with ECCE. We observed rupture of the posterior capsule in 5 patients (2.5%), in two patients (0.5%) IOL was fixed for the iris, in two (1%) - we used iris – retractors and one patient (0.5%) with AC-IOL. In the majority of patients we registered a decrease in IOP after surgery with 1-2 mmHg, in 6 patients (3%) high IOP was measured postop- 27mmHg (23-45mmHg) and one (0.5%) had filtering surgery after phaco. Transition corneal edema was observed in 37 patients (19%), with exfoliations were 22 of them (11%).


Timely cataract extraction in patients with XFS / XFG can normalize IOP in most cases and reduce risk of complications.
