1/11. Intraoperative ocular damage caused by a cannula.

    We report a case in which posterior capsule rupture, vitreous loss, and vitreous hemorrhage were caused by a dislodged, flying cannula during phacoemulsification. We modified our surgical practice since the occurrence of this unusual complication and use Luer-lock syringes during surgery. This measure should prevent the recurrence of this complication.

2/11. Posterior capsule tear with plate-haptic silicone intraocular lens dislocation.

    We report a case of posterior capsule rupture and posterior dislocation of an intraocular lens (IOL) caused by the tip of a silicone plate-haptic lens. The dislocation occurred during IOL implantation after uneventful phacoemulsification in a patient with a small pupil. Discussed are the possible reasons for the complication and measures to prevent it.

3/11. Intraocular lens subluxation in a patient with facial atopic dermatitis.

    A 66-year-old Japanese man presented with subluxation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) caused by a rupture of part of Zinn's zonule but no retinal break 2 years after phacoemulsification with IOL implantation. He had a history of atopic dermatitis since infancy. This case presents a rare ocular complication of scratching and rubbing the face and eyelids because of itching related to atopic dermatitis.

4/11. rupture of a radial keratotomy incision after 11 years during clear corneal phacoemulsification.

    We report a case of rupture of a radial keratotomy (RK) incision that occurred during clear corneal phacoemulsification 11 years after the initial surgery. The RK was done in both eyes for correction of high myopia (>8.0 diopters). This was followed by 2 enhancement procedures at 6 month intervals. The patient presented with diminished vision in both eyes. The diagnosis was nuclear cataract in the right eye, and clear corneal phacoemulsification was done. The intraoperative and postoperative courses were uneventful. Nine months later, clear corneal temporal phacoemulsification was done in the left eye. During surgery, 1 of the radial incisions opened to one third its length. The wound was sutured, and the procedure was completed uneventfully. One month later, best corrected visual acuity was 20/20.

5/11. corneal perforation during laser in situ keratomileusis after hyperopic electrothermal keratoplasty.

    PURPOSE: To report a corneal perforation during laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) after previous electrothermokeratoplasty. DESIGN: Interventional case report. methods: A 49-year-old man presented with primary hyperopia in the right eye and residual hyperopia after electrothermokeratoplasty in the left eye. His refraction was 4.00 in the right eye and 7.00 -3.00 x 135 degrees in the left eye, with a central pachymetry of 535 microm and 549 microm, respectively. phacoemulsification with intraocular lens (IOL) insertion in the right eye and a two-step keratophacorefractive procedure with a piggyback IOL insertion and LASIK in the left eye were proposed. RESULTS: Postoperative refraction was -0.50 -0.50 x 150 degrees 20/20 in the right eye. Postphacoemulsification refraction was -4.75 -4.25 x 135 degrees in the left eye. Laser in situ keratomileusis was performed in the left eye, 4 months later, with uneventful astigmatic laser ablation. During the myopic ablation, a sudden outcome of aqueous humor in one of the temporal corneal scars was observed. CONCLUSIONS: Unpredictably thin areas after electrothermokeratoplasty may lead to unexpected corneal perforation during LASIK. The available pachymetry systems may be unreliable after electrothermal keratoplasty.

6/11. Chopstick technique for nucleus removal in an impending dropped nucleus.

    We describe a bimanual chopstick technique for nucleus removal after a posterior capsule tear and an impending dropped nucleus during phacoemulsification. The technique stabilizes the nucleus and nuclear fragments by providing posterior support with a Sinskey hook introduced from the pars plana. Once supported, the nucleus is gripped between 2 instruments, brought out of the capsular bag into the anterior chamber, and then taken out of the enlarged wound. This bimanual removal technique causes minimal disturbance to the vitreous, iris, and cornea.

7/11. phacoemulsification, persistent hypotony, and cyclodialysis clefts.

    A retrospective noncomparative case-note analysis of 3 men presenting with persistent hypotony after routine phacoemulsification cataract surgery was performed. All patients had a previous history of significant blunt ocular trauma. All patients had surgical repair of the cyclodialysis clefts, 1 with cleft cryopexy and 2 with formal cleft closure with a limbal-based double scleral flap technique. All patients achieved closure of the cyclodialysis clefts following surgical intervention with complete resolution of hypotony. Mean preoperative intraocular pressures improved from 3, 4 and 3 mm Hg in the 3 cases to 11, 16, and 17 mm Hg postoperatively. Visual acuities improved from preoperative readings of counting fingers, 6/36 and 6/24 in the 3 cases to 6/6, 6/9, and 6/9 postoperatively. Persistent hypotony because of possible activation of a preexisting doormant cyclodialysis cleft following routine atraumatic phacoemulsification cataract surgery in previously traumatized eyes has not been reported.

8/11. New method of surgical repair for 360-degree cyclodialysis.

    A 44-year-old man suffered traumatic 360-degree cyclodialysis in the left eye complicated by persistent hypotony, disc edema, maculopathy, and cataract. Treatment was removal of the cataract with phacoemulsification followed by insertion of a capsular tension ring with 2-point scleral suture fixation with polypropylene in the ciliary sulcus. A foldable acrylic posterior chamber intraocular lens was implanted in the capsular bag through the 4.1 mm corneal tunnel incision. The intraocular pressure responded well with resolution of hypotony, choroidal detachment, disc edema, and maculopathy. Ultrasound biomicroscopy showed complete closure of the cyclodialysis cleft.

9/11. Spontaneous resolution of corneal oedema following Descemet's detachment.

    We report a case of spontaneous resolution of corneal oedema in the presence of a large persistent Descemet's detachment in a 71-year-old woman. Detachment of Descemet's membrane occurred during phacoemulsification surgery and produced significant corneal oedema. The patient declined surgical repair. Six months later the corneal oedema resolved and in vivo confocal microscopy showed endothelial cells on the posterior stroma in the region of the detachment. Endothelial cell hypertrophy, migration and redistribution were thought to be responsible for reversal of the corneal oedema. Experimental evidence and clinical studies raise the possibility that limited endothelial cell proliferation may occur.

10/11. Posterior capsule rupture by blunt ocular trauma.

    A patient with posterior lens capsule rupture caused by blunt trauma and in whom the anterior capsule and the remainder of the eyeball structure was intact had phacoemulsification and aspiration of the crystalline lens with implantation of a posterior chamber intraocular lens. Further rupture of the capsule was prevented by the fibrosis, which tightened the margin of the ruptured capsule. This case shows that blunt trauma can rupture the posterior lens capsule, leaving the anterior capsule intact.
