Complications in the first 10 phacoemulsification cataract surgeries with and without prior simulator training

Conclusions: The training with the Eyesi® cataract surgery sim ulator significantly reduced the total number of intraoperative complications in the first 10 phacoemulsification cataract surgeries performed by ophthalmology residents.RESUMO Objetivo: Avaliar se o treinamento de residentes m édicos com o simulador de cirurgia de catarata Eyesi® reduz a ocorrência de complicações intraoperatórias. Métodos: Estudo retrospectivo em que foram avaliadas as primeiras 10 cirurgias de facoemulsificação realizadas por dois grupos de residentes de Oftalmologia do segundo ano, no períod o de 2014 a 2015. O primeiro Grupo foi formado por sete residentes de 2014 que não tiveram treinamento prévio no simulador. O segundo Grupo foi formado por sete residentes de 2015, que completaram o treinamento até o nível C (intermediário) no simulador antes de iniciar a cirurgia em pacientes. Em seguida, comparamos esses dois grupos em relação à frequência de ocorrência das quatro principais complicações cirúrgicas intraoperatórias: ruptura da cápsula posterior, afacia e deslocamento de fragmentos de núcleo para o vítreo e conversão para extracapsular. Resultados: Foram re alizadas 140 cirurgias, sendo 70 pelo Grupo 1 e 70 pelo Grupo 2. O número total de complicações foi de 19 (27,14%) no Grup...

ConclusionsAll lenses showed excellent surface quality. After folding and injection process some superficial scratches and tears of the IOL optic were detected in some models. Further studies are needed to assess the possible effects of those superficial damages on the optical quality of the IOLs.

AbstractPurposeTo compare the perceived pain and estimated operative duration among patients undergoing bilateral cataract surgery and to demonstrate correlations with the surgical interval and the demographic and medical characteristics of the patients.MethodsA total of 466 patients with cataract who underwent ocular surgery were included. The patients estimated the perceived operative duration and pain they felt during the operation at two times, immediately after surgery and on the first postoperative day; pain was scored using a visual analog scale ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10 (unbearable pain). Patients undergoing b...

Authors: Chadha RM, Dexter F, Brull SJ Abstract Background: We evaluated the validity of assessing patient satisfaction with the sedation regimen among patients being discharged 45 minutes after receiving midazolam. If most patients do not have recall, then the sedation cannot be considered complete at the time of evaluation. Methods: In this prospective cohort study, 20 patients underwent cataract surgery with nurse-administered midazolam and fentanyl. The 11-item Iowa Satisfaction with Anesthesia Scale was administered ≅30 minutes after sedation in the recovery room. Recalled items were evaluated next mo...
