Abstract Details

Purpose:

Design and Use of new Capsular Tension Ring (CTR) injection system

Setting:

Alo Eye Care, Kolkata

Methods:

: A CTR injector was designed from a 20G IV catheter. The eye of CTR was threaded with suture 10-0 Nylon /Prolene. CTR was injected into the eye through the main phaco port in a folded manner through 2.2 and 2.8 mm incisions. The sutures were removed only after completion of surgery.

Results:

The CTR insertion was smooth. Threading allowed slow and guided release of CTR in the bag and safe recovery if CTR removal was required in case of PCR. No extra complications were noted.

Conclusions:

New CTR delivery system is easy to make and use; is reproducible and safe to use. It also allows safe and easy removal preoperatively if need be.

Financial Interest:

NONE
