Dr. Agarwal Does It Again- New technique To Prevent Nucleus Drop
November 28, 2011
OSN: As anyone who watches ophthalmology videos or goes to conferences knows, Dr. Agarwal from India is one of the most fearless, innovative and skilled eye surgeons in the world. He describes a brilliant, elegant way to prevent nuclear pieces from dropping into the vitreous after a posterior capsule rupture. He levitates the pieces into the anterior chamber with OVD, then inserts a foldable 3 piece IOL into the anterior chamber over the iris. This acts as a barrier, and phaco proceeds over the IOL. Once the nucleus is removed, the capsule can be inspected and the IOL positioned into the sulcus or sutured to iris (or glued to sclera).
