Abstract Details


To evaluate outcomes of management of profound zonular weakness using capsule support device


Dnipropetrovsk regional ophthalmic clinic


We retrospectively studied 38 eyes of 34 patients which underwent surgery from July 2015 to February 2017 . In all cases capsular bag was sutured to the sclera without conjunctival dissection ( Hoffman scleral pockets) prior or after phacoemulsification or aspiration . In 20 cases it was used in conjunction with CTR.We have used these devise in a variety of cases , including blunt traumatic zonular rupture (7), lens subluxation secondary to pseudoexfoliation(21) and hereditary zonular pathologies such as primary ectopia lentis (8 eyes of 4 patients), late capsular bag CTR IOL complex dislocation (2).


Good functional and anatomical outcomes were achieved in all cases. No device-related complications were observed .
