New Technique in Congenital/Pediatric Cataract Surgery
In pediatric/congenital cataract surgery; multiple surgical interventions are performed, which needs multiple general anesthesias. Here, we describe a new technique, to end the operation in one session.
|Condition or Disease
Generally, in congenital/pediatric cataract surgery, it might be possible to different multiple procedures with multiple general anesthesias. Here, the investigators found a new procedure to perform the cataract removal, intraocular implantation, and the anterior vitrectomy all in one session through a sclero-corneal tunnel. The corneoscleral tunnels are covered by the conjunctiva to abolish the need for both suturing and repeated general anesthesia to remove corneal sutures.
