INTRODUCTION. With recent development of smaller incision, more accurate biometry for intraocular lens (IOL) calculation and correction of preexisting corneal astigmatism, cataract extraction with IOL implantation not only achieve better vision rehabilitation nowadays, but also is known as refractive cataract surgery, aiming for better postoperative vision quality,.Cited by: 3. To compare the course and magnitude of change on the horizontal and vertical meridians of the cornea after 5 different incisions for cataract: extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE), 6 mm. Jacques Daviel (–) published the first account of cataract extraction through an inferior corneal incision. − Samuel Sharp successfully performed intracapsular cataract extraction in − von Graefe (–) improved Daviel’s extracapsular cataract extraction technique using a superior corneal incision. −. A corneoscleral approach may trigger more inflammation and scar formation than a clear cornea approach. 12,17 In a study with extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) via an inferotemporal approach after previous trabeculectomy, Dickens and Cashwell found an increase of mean IOP of mmHg after cataract surgery, although not elevated above

To make such an incision in the cornea he devised a narrow knife, with parallel cutting edge and back, and called his operation a linear extraction of cata ract. Two years' practice with it showed some defects, and he changed slightly his point of puncture, and his "modified linear extraction" became the standard cataract extraction for the. The operation performed in all instances was the modified von Graefe's linear extraction after the manner described by Mr. Brudenell Carter in his work on Diseases of the Eye, with this difference, however, that in most cases the incision was made wholly through the cornea, but as close to the sclero- corneal junction as possible. What had been forced on him by accident and, incidentally, had proved utterly unsuccessful, he repeated deliberately in a second case -- deliberately making an opening through the cornea and removing the lens piecemeal. Actual extraction of the lens en masse was forced on him in a case in which he failed to couch the cataract. Rationale: In the CPT® Index look for Cataract/Incision/Laser. Documentation states that this is performed on a secondary cataract with a laser. The cataract is not removed from the eye, just from the line of vision. The cutting or incision through a part is a .

Intracapsular: involves a large incision. The lens is picked up for extraction with forceps, suction, or a cryoprobe. The ENTIRE capsule is removed. Extracapsular: performed through a small incision and the lens is expressed or removed manually or by phacoemulsification.   Cataract extraction (Manual) and cataract surgery in special situation Bipin Bista Resident Ophthalmology 2. Introduction Invaluable management of certain crystalline lens and zonular pathologies inappropriate for phaco. Choice of procedure based on a spectrum of factors and operative experience. Provides excellent rehabilitation of blindness. Formerly the most popular cataract surgery, the older method of extracapsular extraction involves a longer incision, about in (10 mm), or almost half of the eye. Recovery from the larger incision extracapsular extraction also requires almost a week-long hospital stay after surgery, and limited physical activity for weeks or even months.   Solo Survival: How to Survive Alone in the Wilderness for 1 week --Eastern Woodlands - Duration: Tom McElroy-Wild Survival Recommended for you.
