Postoperative Capsular Bag Distension Syndrome - Risk Factors and Treatment.
Conclusion:Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy, and in some cases anterior capsulotomy, is accepted as a standard and effective CBDS treatment. Surgical approach could be beneficial in cases suspected of Propionibacterium acnes presence or when it is impossible to perform Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy.

ConclusionsThe use of FLACS on the Alcon LenSx platform results in a small decrease in phacoemulsification energy as compared to conventional phacoemulsification in certain cases. Further study assessing optimal laser settings and surgical technique is necessary.
CONCLUSIONS: Late-onset UGH syndrome can be caused by SRC. Surgical removal of the SRC with IOL repositioning within the capsular bag resolves most if not all components of UGH. Anterior segment ultrasound biomicroscopy is a helpful modality for determining if a SRC is present by demonstrating anatomic relationships commonly obscured by a miotic pupil.

If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney stones (urolithiasis), you may have several options for treatment. These include medical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), and ureteroscopy. A brief anatomy of the urinary tract The urinary tract includes kidneys (two organs that filter waste and extra water from the blood) ureters (two tubes bringing urine from each kidney to the bladder) bladder (organ that collects urine) urethra (a single tube through which urine in the bladder passes out of the body). The evaluation for kidney stones If your symptoms suggest kidney...
This study measured time to fragment removal and number of chatter events using various combinations of micropulse on and off times (measured in milliseconds) of longitudinal ultrasound using a venturi-based phacoemulsification system.
This article aims to evaluate the outcomes of torsional and burst mode phacoemulsification in hard nuclear cataracts. Eighty eyes with grade IV or V nuclear opalescence were treated with phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation using conventional mode (Group A, n = 40) or torsional and burst mode phacoemulsification (Group B, n = 40). For good visualization of anterior capsule, trypan blue was injected to the anterior chamber before continuous circular capsulorhexis. The mean cumulative dissipated energy and ultrasound time were recorded. The best-corrected visual acuity, endothelial cell density, and...
CONCLUSIONS: A structured biometry training course may improve the accuracy of preoperative IOL calculations to achieve the postoperative refractive target. Ophthalmology training programs should include structured biometry teaching in their curricula.
Use of higher frequency ultrasound for phacoemulsification of moderate to hard cataracts leads to lower effective phaco time and estimated fluid loss as well as a better preserved endothelium upto one year
To compare 2 ultrasound (US) frequencies for phacoemulsification for moderate to hard cataract to determine a frequency that makes phacoemulsification safer and more efficacious.
Conclusion: Intraoperative and postoperative parameters after torsional phacoemulsification are comparable in diabetics and nondiabetics. Endothelial changes and pachymetry may be related to the grade of cataract in diabetics.
Conclusion: SO-filled eyes had a myopic shift in refraction after SOR and PE. When UB is used for IOL power calculation, better refractive outcomes are obtained when SOR and PE are performed in a two-step approach.
