Pediatric Cataract & IOL Surgery in a 3 month old Child SuVi Eye Kota India

In this video, Dr Suresh K Pandey & Dr Vidushi Sharma, eye surgeons of Suvi Eye Institute & Research Center, Kota, Rajasthan, India ( share their experience on managing a cataract in a 3 month old child. After creating a side port "Ultimate Soft Shell technique" (described by Dr Steve Arshinoff) was used to stain the anterior capsule using viscoadaptive OVD Healon-5 (AMO-Abbott Medical Optics). After completing anterior capsulorhexis, hydrodissection on performed and phacoespration of lens material was done using bimanual irrigation and aspiration using AMO Signature (Ellips Transverse Ultrasound) Phaco Machine with Surgical Media Center (SMC). This is followed by implantation of a Tecnis one-peice IOL (Abbott Medical Optics) in the capsular bag. A primary posterior capsulectomy and anterior vitrectomy is performed using vitrector. Preservative free triamcinolone acetonide (Aurocort, Aravind Lab) was injected intracamerally to stain any residual vitreous strand(s) with in the anterior chamber. No vitreous strand(s) was visible. The OVD (Healon-5) was removed from anterior chamber and wound is closed using 10-0 nylon sutures. Siedel's test was done using Flurorescein sodium dye to see if there is any leakage of dye from the incisions.

Ultimate soft-shell technique : The ultimate soft-shell technique compartmentalizes the anterior chamber using the ultimate low-viscosity fluid—water (as balanced salt solution [BSS®] or trypan blue [Vision Blue®])—in combination with commercially available viscoadaptive ophthalmic viscosurgical devices: Healon®5 (sodium hyaluronate 2.3%, AMO) . The use of this technique facilitates cataract surgery with viscoadaptive OVDs and viscoadaptive removal at the end of the procedure.
