Management of Posterior Capsular Rent: Various Case Scenarios
When any intraoperative complication occurs, a sense of urgency is appropriately experienced by the surgeon. Rushing can be counterproductive, however, as it can generate errors. Such mistakes can take more time to correct than addressing the problem in a methodical but prompt manner from the start. Furthermore, improper management can adversely affect the postoperative outcome [3, 7] in addition to the intraoperative experience for the patient.
