Management Strategies for Early Posterior Capsular Rents During Phacoemulsification Surgery



This chapter on posterior capsule rupture management reflects my own strategy, which I have developed during my 25 years’ career of cataract surgery and teaching. I recognize and respect that there are different opinions and strategies to handle complications. My strategy has been proven to be of value to me and my residents, and I hope readers will benefit equally. Keywords are Dispersive Viscoshield Barrier and Very Low Fluidics.
