|Title:||How serious is posterior capsule rupture?||Authors:||Lim, A.S.M.
|Issue Date:||1990||Citation:||Lim, A.S.M., Chiang, C., Chew, P.T.K. (1990). How serious is posterior capsule rupture?. European Journal of Implant and Refractive Surgery 2 (1) : 57-61. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Posterior capsule rupture remains an important intrasurgical complication with considerable controversy regarding its management. Some surgeons still recommend anterior vitrectomy routinely. Others will not insert a posterior chamber implant. And most are worried about the poor visual result. In this paper, based on an analysis of 62 eyes, we illustrate how we manage the problem: anterior vitrectomy was usually not required; a posterior chamber lens implant is almost always inserted and the visual result of 6/12 vision and better was found in 86% of afflicted eyes. The importance of prevention is emphasized and the significance of good management is also discussed.||Source Title:||European Journal of Implant and Refractive Surgery||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/131064||ISSN:||09553681|
