PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of the sustained-release of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) chelating Ca++ on lens epithelial cell (LEC) migration. SETTING Nishi Eye Hospital, Jinshikai Medical Foundation, Osaka, Japan. METHODS Polylactic-glycolic acid disks containing 10% EDTA were placed in saline solution for about 2 weeks in vitro. About 60% (7 micrograms/hour) of the EDTA was released during that time. The disks with a posterior chamber intraocular lens placed above were… CONTINUE READING
