The amounts of Prostaglandin (PG) E and F2α in the aqueous humor were measured by radioimmunoassay techniques before and immediately after intracapsular and extracapsular cataract extractions. We found that: 1. The levels of PG E and PG F2α are elevated by cataract extraction. 2. The elevated levels of PGs can all be prevented by preoperative applications of topical indomethacin. 3. No differences in the amounts of PGs biosynthesized during intracapsular and extracapsular lens extraction were… CONTINUE READING
