Iris claw intraocular lens: a viable option in monocular surgical aphakia.
Vertical fixation with fibrin glue-assisted secondary posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation in a case of surgical aphakia.
In-the-bag intraocular lens placement via secondary capsulorhexis with radiofrequency diathermy in pediatric aphakic eyes.
Predictability of intraocular lens power calculation formulae in infantile eyes with unilateral congenital cataract: results from the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study.

Surgery of aphakic retinal detachment.
(46/91)In a prospective study 84 patients with aphakic retinal detachment were treated either by local scleral buckling alone or combined with an encirclement. The rate of surgical reattachment of the retina was found to be similar with either technique over a minimum follow-up period of one year. Simplicity and a low incidence of serious complications of the local procedure merit its application as the initial method of repairing aphakic detachments. (+info)
Acute glaucoma following vitrectomy and silicone oil injection.
(47/91)Three cases are described of acute glaucoma following vitrectomy and silicone oil injection in proliferative vitreous retinopathy. The first case developed silicone-induced pupillary block in a phakic eye. Cases 2 and 3 developed elevated pressure in aphakic eyes with deep anterior chambers. Cases 1 and 3 were treated by laser iridectomy. Case 2 was treated by removal of silicone. The pathogenesis and treatment of these problems are discussed. (+info)
Haemolytic glaucoma occurring in phakic eyes.
(48/91)The occurrence of haemolytic glaucoma in phakic eyes due to ghost cells has not previously been reported. Three cases of haemolytic glaucoma occurring over two years after massive vitreous haemorrhage in patients with an intact lens iris diaphragm are described. In one case there was histological confirmation of the presence of ghost cells in the anterior chamber. The mechanism proposed for the passage of ghost cells to the anterior chamber is through a defect in the anterior hyaloid face, created as the vitreous liquefies and degenerates. The reported cases were satisfactorily treated by trabeculectomy with anterior chamber washout, which management has not previously been reported in haemolytic glaucoma. (+info)
