Detection and Influencing Factors of Capsular Bag Distention Syndrome after Cataract Surgery Using the Pentacam Scheimpflug System – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the prevalence and morphologic changes of capsular bag distention syndrome after cataract surgery using the Pentacam and to analyze its clinical characteristics and influencing factors.Design: Retrospective, cross-sectional study.Methods: Clinical records of 239 consecutive patients who underwent cataract surgery were reviewed. Demographic data, use of intraoperative ophthalmic viscosurgical devices, type of intraocular lens implanted, axial length, and white-to-white corneal diameter were recorded. One month after surgery, dilated Scheimpflug imaging was performed. Prevalence, morphologic changes, and characteristic clinical findings of this syndrome were evaluated.Results: Using Scheimpflug imaging, the prevalence of capsular bag distention syndrome was high at 26.8% (64/239), (Read more...)
