Surgical Complications

Thanks to all the surgeons who submit their surgical complications to Eyetube! As a surgeon, it is hard to watch your own complications videos; often, it is easier just to forget these challenging cases even happened. However, these videos truly are valuable learning tools—for us and for our peers. Below is a series of videos highlighting the management of several complications that can occur during cataract surgery. We hope you find them enlightening.

Argentinean Flag Sign

Take a look at this video from Tal Raviv, MD, in which he successfully navigates the Argentinean flag sign during cataract surgery of a white cataract. Here, this complication occurred in a patient who was monocular and deaf, increasing the difficulty of the case.

Management of Iris Prolapse

In this video, Uday Devgan, MD, presents a challenging case of a patient with a dense white cataract that is complicated by iris prolapse.

Vertical Chopping the Hypermature White Cataract

On a similar note, check out how Gary Wortz, MD, handles this hypermature white cataract. As shown, Dr. Wortz chooses not to perform hydrodissection and thus avoids over-inflation of the capsular bag, which can lead to capsular tears or iris prolapse.
