A new phacoemulsification technique for in-the-bag IOL placement

, : A new phacoemulsification technique for in-the-bag IOL placement. Journal - American Intra-Ocular Implant Society 9(4): 461-463

The standard phacoemulsification procedure includes capsulotomy with an irrigating cystotome and cortical cleanup with an irrigation/aspiration handpiece. While this is an effective technique, it produces ill-defined capsule edges that make in-the-bag placement of the implant difficult. We describe a technique that facilitates identification of capsular flaps by using scissors for the anterior capsulotomy, followed by cortical cleanup with the Gills technique and in-the-bag placement of the implant.

The Fas antigen is a cell surface protein that can mediate apoptosis in many cell types. Although its physiological function is still unclear, recent evidence indicates that this surface molecule is involved in apoptosis in the immune system and t...
