We present of modified technique for sutureless ECCE with a trapezoidal tunnel incision of 11 mm. The operation can be performed in a closed system because of the self-sealing wound construction. Compared to the sutured corneoscleral ECCE the new procedure has important advantages: the procedure is safe even during the critical phase following nucleus(More)
We compared two suture techniques after phacoemulsification and implantation of a standard PMMA posterior chamber lens with a 7 mm intrascleral lamellar incision: the cross-stitch (double running) suture closure and the one-stitch technique. Two series with 100 patients each were examined. In the early postoperative period the astigmatism induced was 1.9(More)
Self-sealing intrascleral wound construction with a trapezoidal 12-mm incision for extracapsular cataract extraction and implantation of a standard PMMA IOL with a 6.5-mm optical diameter using the no-stitch technique has been well established at our clinic since 1991. This technique allows cataract surgery in a nearly closed system. In consideration of our(More)
Like the type of wound opening, wound closure has an important influence on postoperative astigmatism. In a series of 300 patients, for 1 year we examined postoperative astigmatism after cataract surgery with sutured scleral wound closure and the no-stitch technique. In the early postoperative period, the no-stitch technique. (1.00 dpt +/- 0.83) had less(More)
