AIMS To assess the efficacy of extracapsular cataract surgery using the anterior chamber maintainer (ACM) without the use of viscoelastic. To compare the effects of this surgical technique on non-diabetic and diabetic patients. METHODS A prospective single armed clinical trial of 46 eyes in 46 patients undergoing cataract surgery using the ACM without viscoelastic. Patients were assessed preoperatively and at 3 weeks, 3 months, and 12 months postoperatively. The main outcome variables included… Expand
Sutureless cataract surgery with nucleus extraction: outcome of a prospective study in Nepal
TLDR
Rapid recovery of good vision can be achieved with sutureless manual ECCE at low cost in areas where there is a need for high volume cataract surgery. Expand
Anterior Chamber Maintainer (ACM): A useful aid in small incision cataract surgery
TLDR
Use of ACM leads to better cortical cleaning and lesser postoperative uveal inflammation and it was helpful even with phakoemulsification and during secondary surgeries. Expand
Cataract surgery in aged patients: phacoemulsification or small-incision extracapsular cataract surgery.
TLDR
Both Phaco and SICS combined with IOL implantation for aged patients are effective and safe and when the systemic condition is stable, cataract surgery for aged Patients is safe. Expand
Endothelial Cells and Central Corneal Thickness after Modified Sutureless Manual Small-incision Cataract Surgery
TLDR
Modified MSICS offers a viable enhancement of MSICS, with mild and transient impact on theCorneal endothelial cell density and corneal pachymetry. Expand
Use of the Anterior Chamber Maintainer in Trabeculectomy Following Vitrectomy
TLDR
ACM is effective in maintaining IOP and reducing complications during trabeculectomy following vitrectomy, thereby increasing surgical success rates, and there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups. Expand
Small Incision Clear Lens Extraction for Correction of High Myopia
TLDR
Clear lens extraction and IOL implantation was effective and had an acceptable predictability and a low morbidity in correcting high myopia and regular retinal examination is necessary to prevent postoperative RD. Expand
Hydroimplantation versus viscoimplantation: comparison of intraocular lens implantation with and without ophthalmic viscoelastic device in phacoemulsification
TLDR
Hydroimplantation technique is safe and effective in phacoemulsification, and reduced time of surgery and reduced cost of ophthalmic viscoelastic devices are the advantages of this technique. Expand
Comparison of Endothelial Cell Loss and Surgically Induced Astigmatism following Conventional Extracapsular Cataract Surgery, Manual Small-Incision Surgery and Phacoemulsification
TLDR
PE induced less astigmatism than SICS and ECCE in this study but the magnitude of the difference between SICS or PE was small and there was no significant difference in endothelial cell loss. Expand
Simultaneous bilateral cataract extraction
TLDR
The outcome of simultaneous bilateral cataracts extraction was comparable to that of single‐eye cataract surgery, indicating that the procedure is safe under strict surgical protocol and beneficial in selected cases. Expand

Use of the anterior chamber maintainer in anterior segment surgery
TLDR
Provided that it is used correctly, the anterior chamber maintainer (ACM) may offer increased safety during anterior segment surgery and require less use of viscoelastic agents. Expand
Astigmatism after small incision cataract surgery. A prospective, randomized, multicenter comparison of 4- and 6.5-mm incisions.
TLDR
Subgroup analysis of the suturing technique showed that the technique of wound closure, as well as the wound size, influenced the induced astigmatism, however, the variability in the amount of induced cylinder was least with the 4.0-mm wound. Expand
[Corneal endothelium after cataract surgery].
TLDR
Corneal endothelium was examined in 95 patients with a contact endothelial specular microscope before and after extracapsular cataract extraction with IOL implantation and studies of the endothelia cells density were performed 1 and 3 months after surgery. Expand
A comparison of corneal endothelial changes after use of Healon or Viscoat during phacoemulsification.
TLDR
In eyes receiving Healon, posterior-chamber phacoemulsification resulted in less corneal endothelial trauma than the iris-plane technique, and Viscoat provided greater corneAL endothelial protection than Healon during Iris-plane phacoEMulsification. Expand
Continued endothelial cell loss ten years after lens implantation.
TLDR
Ten years after cataract extraction, eyes continued to lose endothelial cells from the central cornea at a rate of 2.5% per year, 2.0 times the rate in healthy unoperated eyes, and postoperative eyes with cornea guttata continued to losing cells at more than twice this rate. Expand
Corneal endothelial changes after posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation in patients with or without diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
No significant differences in the endothelial cell density, coefficient of variation, or cell loss were noted between diabetic patients and age matched non-diabetic subjects during the observation period. Expand
Endothelial cell loss after 4 mm cataract surgery
TLDR
Although the three‐step 4 mm incision does seem to affect the corneal endothelium, its clinical significance is unknown, the result was neither clinically nor statistically significant. Expand
Corneal endothelial cell loss in phacoemulsification surgery with silicone intraocular lens implantation
TLDR
The implantation of silicone IOLs and PMMA I OLs causes minimal corneal endothelial cell loss in contemporary small incision surgery, and no statistically significant difference was observed among these four groups. Expand
Long-term corneal endothelial changes after intraocular lens implantation. Anterior vs posterior chamber lenses.
TLDR
Severe endothelial cell loss and morphologic change were seen in patients who received anterior chamber lenses and four patients in the anterior chamber lens group developed pseudophakic bullous keratopathy 6 or 7 years after surgery. Expand
