PURPOSE To compare the extensibility and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of 5 currently used pediatric anterior capsulotomy techniques: vitrectorhexis, manual continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis (CCC), can-opener, radio frequency diathermy, and plasma blade in a porcine model. SETTING Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, USA. METHODS Extensibility was determined by stretching each capsulotomy until it ruptured and measuring it by… CONTINUE READING
