Purpose: To assess the utility of the torsional phacoemulsification handpiece compared to the Fragmatome during pars plana vitrectomy for removal of posterior segment retained lens material. Design: Retrospective comparative case series. Methods: Thirty-four eyes of 34 patients at 2 centers who underwent pars plana vitrectomy for retained lens material with either torsional phacoemulsification or the Fragmatome were retrospectively reviewed. Lens material was graded by nuclear density and… 
Intravitreal Phacoemulsification Using Torsional Handpiece for Retained Lens Fragments
TLDR
Intravitreal phacoemulsification using torsional hand piece is a safe and effective alternative to conventional longitudinal phacofragmentation in eyes with posteriorly dislocated lens fragments.
Small-gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy with phacoemulsification in the pupillary plane of dense retained lens matter on perfluorocarbon liquids after complicated cataract surgery
TLDR
The technique was used successfully, with good visual acuity outcomes and a low complication rate, in 13 patients operated on with transconjunctival vitrectomy with phacoemulsification of dense retained lens matter on top of PFCLs.
SUTURELESS CLEAR CORNEAL ULTRASONIC FRAGMENTATION FOR RETAINED LENS FRAGMENTS: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Clear corneal, sutureless ultrasonic fragmentation seems to be a novel, safe, and efficient method for the removal of hard posteriorly dislocated lens fragments, sparing the need for a 20-gauge scleral port.
Intravitreal Phacoemulsification Through Corneal Incision for Management of Posteriorly Dislocated Lens Material After Complicated Cataract Surgery: A New Surgical Technique.
TLDR
A new surgical technique for posteriorly dislocated lens material removal is described and its outcomes are described, which strongly suggest that the technique is closely approximating to an ideal one.
Meta-analysis comparing same-day versus delayed vitrectomy clinical outcomes for intravitreal retained lens fragments after age-related cataract surgery
TLDR
A systematic review and meta-analysis comparing the risk difference of clinical outcomes for same-day (SD) vs delayed (DEL) pars plana vitrectomy support referring a patient with retained lens fragments promptly to a vitreoretinal surgeon but do not support interfacility transport for SD-PPV.
The kebab technique uses a bipolar pencil to retrieve a dropped nucleus of the lens via a small incision
We developed a new method to retrieve a dropped nucleus of the lens via a small incision using bipolar pencils, the kebab technique, to solve the lack of small-gauge fragmatomes, and the expense and
Elastic Silicone Bowl to Salvage Dislocated Lenses and Substitute for the Substitutive Posterior Lens Capsule During Phacoemulsification.
TLDR
The use of an elastic silicone bowl (ESB) dissected from a silicone phaco test chamber to salvage dislocated lenses in four eyes in three patients is reported.
Perioperative Management of Dropped Lenses: Anterior and Posterior Segment Considerations and Treatment Options
TLDR
Judicious intraoperative and postoperative management must be employed to reduce the risk of complications of cataract surgery and can often require the collaboration of both anterior and posterior segment surgeons.
Factory-Made Elastic Silicone Sheet as an Alternative for the Posterior Capsule of the Lens During Phacoemulsification for Dislocated/Subluxated Lenses
TLDR
The factory-made ESS described here can be used for salvaging dislocated/subluxated lenses and safely performing PEA and could be removed completely without any complications.
Pars Plana Lensectomy After Femtosecond Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery.
TLDR
The authors report the first videographically documented case of removal of retained lens material after femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery.

Intravitreal Phacoemulsification with Pars Plana Vitrectomy for Management of Posteriorly Dislocated Nucleus or Lens Fragments
TLDR
Immediate vitrectomy and intravitreal phacoemulsification is a surgical option in the management of posteriorly dislocated nucleus/lens fragments without much risk of retinal damage and the risk of postoperative complications including uveitis, secondary glaucoma, and cystoid macular edema could be minimized.
Phacoemulsification in the Vitreous Cavity for Retained Nuclear Lens Fragments
TLDR
PPV with intravitreous phacoemulsification is the technique of choice for dislocated nuclei or nuclear fragments in the vitreous cavity for retained nuclear lens fragments after pars plana vitrectomy.
Pars plana torsional phacoemulsification for removal of retained lens material during pars plana vitrectomy.
TLDR
A new technique of posterior segment phacoemulsification using the OZil handpiece (Alcon Laboratories), which is designed for the Alcon Infiniti machine, and found to be the most helpful in reaching the posterior segment to engage the lens material.

RETINAL TEARS AND RETINAL DETACHMENT AS FACTORS AFFECTING VISUAL OUTCOME AFTER CATARACT EXTRACTION COMPLICATED BY POSTERIORLY DISLOCATED LENS MATERIAL
TLDR
A good visual outcome (20/40 or better) is possible in eyes with posteriorly dislocated lens fragments after cataract extraction, even when retinal tears or macula-on retinal detachment is present, while pneumatic retinopexy is not associated with retinal reattachment in many cases and is not preferred.
