Cataract/Anterior Segment, Complications
In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Lisa Arbisser manages an aphakic patient with preoperative vitreous in the anterior chamber. She first uses triamcinolone acetonide (Kenalog) to identify the vitreous. Upon removing the cannula from the paracentesis, the vitreous visibly follows the gradient of low pressure. After cutting at the incision site, she inserts an irrigating cannula and uses a vacuum to help the vitreous move along the low-pressure gradient and return back to the posterior chamber.
