Introduction

Introduction

  • Cataract is a frequentcomplication of siliconeoiltamponadeusedin themanagement of proliferativevitreoretinopathyandadvanceddiabeticretinopathycomplications.

  • Weaimed to evaluate clinical results of clear corneal phacoemulsification combined with transpupillarysilicone oil removal.


Patient s and methods

Patients and methods

  • A retrospectivestudy

  • 20 patients; 13 males, 7 females

  • Agerange; 14-75 years, meanage 53 yrs

  • Thesamesurgeon(YT) performedalltheoperations.

  • Thereasonsforprimaryvitreoretinalsurgery:

    • Proliferativevitreoretinopathy in 13 eyes,

    • Retinaldetachmentwithgianttear in 2 eyes

    • Retinaldetachmentwithmacular hole in 1 eye,

    • Proliferativediabeticretinopathycomplications in 4 eyes.


Patient s and methods1

Patients and methods

  • Type of cataract

    • Posteriorsubcapsularopacitiescombinedwithnuclearsclerosis

  • Biometry

    • SRK/T formulausingtrueaxiallength(AL)

    • True AL wasestimatedbymultiplyingmeasured AL bytheconversionfactor of 0.71

  • Type of anesthesia

    • Topical (10 eyes),

    • Peribulbar (9 eyes),

    • General anesthesia (1 eye-14 yearsold)


Patient s and methods2

Patients and methods

  • Surgicalsteps;

    • A superiorclearcornealincision

    • Phacoemulsification (quickchoptechnique)

    • Anteriorchambermaintainerplacementforinfusion

    • Posteriorcapsulotomy

    • Siliconeoilremovalthroughtheposteriorcapsulotomywith a 16 gaugecannulaconnectedto a 10 mL syringe

    • Retinalexaminationwith a wide-angleviewingsystem

    • IOL implantation in thecapsularbagorsulcus.

Discussion

Discussion

Cataract is a commoncomplicationfollowingvitreoretinalsurgerywithsiliconeoiltamponade.

Combinedphacoemulsificationandsiliconeoilremovalthrough a clearcornealincision has someadvantages :

Reducednumber of surgicalprocedures,

Reducedoperation time,

Lessor no posteriorpressureduringphacoemulsificaiton,

No sclerotomy,

No posteriorcapsularopacification,

Reduced risk of retinaldetachmentandvitreoushemorrhage (Because ora serrata is spared)


Discussion1

Discussion

Somepotentialdisadvantages of combinedsurgery:

Lesspredictablepostoperativerefraction,

Increaseddifficulty of in-thebagIOL implantation (particularlyfor mono-blochydrophilicIOLs),

Relativehypotonyaftersiliconeoilremoval,

No chance of membranepeelingorretinalstabilization.

Potentialsubluxation of the IOL in case of inadvertentlargeposteriorcapsulotomy

Angiographicmacularedema


Conclusion

Conclusion

Combinedphacoemulsificationandsiliconeoilremovalthrough a clearcornealincision is a safeandeffectivetechnique, but must be reservedin selectedcases in which retina is permanentlystabilizedwith no significantepiretinalorsubretinalmembranes.
