Abstract:
We present the safety and efficacy of a novel transscleral sutured posterior chamber intraocular lens (TSSPCIOL) implantation approach utilizing 25 gauge vitrectomy and a foldable posterior chamber intraocular lens implant (AKREOS AO60, Bausch & Lomb). 80 consecutive eyes that underwent single surgeon TSSPCIOL implantation between October 2008 and July 2012 at a referral‐based retina institution were analyzed for best spectacle‐corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and safety indicators. Postoperative complications included retinal detachment in 2 eyes (2.5%), Irvine‐Gass cystoid macular edema in 3 eyes (3.75%), with 2 of those cases occurring late, persistent postoperative corneal edema in 1 eye (1.25%), hyphema in 2 eyes (2.5%) and 1 case of postoperative vitreous hemorrhage with spontaneous clearing. The modified external approach with AKREOS® TSSPCIOL placement with 25 gauge vitrectomy has relatively few complications, improves visual acuity in patients requiring TSSPCIOL, and offers several advantages over traditional anterior chamber or conventional scleral sutured techniques.
