Bimanual technique to manage subincisional cortical material.


The aspiration of subincisional cortical material using a standard irrigation/aspiration (I/A) handpiece can be a difficult maneuver in phacoemulsification. Access to the cortex is restricted and made more problematic by an incision carried into clear cornea and a continuous curvilinear capsulotomy. A bimanual technique for I/A has been developed that… (More)
