Abstract Details

Purpose:

To investigate the occurrence of vitreoretinal complications after posterior continuous capsulorhexis (PCC).

Setting:

Kagıthane State Hospital

Methods:

Twenty cataract patients submitted to PCC after phacoemulsification were evaluated with slitlamp exam funduscopy, and Fourier domain OCT for macular pathologies. BCVA was obtained two weeks after the surgical procedure.

Results:

Disruption of vitreous face during pcc was noted in 5%. No case of cystoid macula edema was observed. Seventeen eyes (85 %) had in-the-bag IOL implantation, and in 3 eyes ( 15% ) sulcus implantation of IOL was performed. Mean BCVA was 20/25.

Conclusions:

PCC is a safe surgical procedure. Minimal vitreous loss and no macular disturbances were observed in this study.

Financial Disclosure:

NONE
