CTR with Larger Dialysis
Capsule Retractors (Iris Hooks) with Delayed CTR Use
This video demonstrates the advantages of capsular retractors over a CTR to stabilize the dehisced portion of the capsular bag during cortical removal. Having been previously placed to expand the pupil, 4-0 Prolene iris retractors are used to support the capsulorhexis rim in the region of the zonular dialysis. CTR insertion can be delayed until after the cortex has been removed.
