This book deals with a potentially sight threatening complication - rupture of the posterior capsule – during cataract surgery. This handbook covers the management of this problem from 3 perspectives: 1.Identifying patients at higher risk and measures to manage such patients by surgical discipline 2.Intraoperative management of posterior capsular rupture (PCR) to minimize long-term complications 3.Post-operative care for a patient who has a PCR Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in ophthalmology and despite tremendous technical and technological advancements, PCR still occurs. PCR occurs both in the hands of experienced senior surgeons and the neophyte surgeons, although with a higher frequency in the latter group. Additionally, certain types of cataracts are prone to this development. If managed properly in a timely manner the eventual outcome may be no different from that of an uncomplicated case. However, improper management may lead on to serious complications with a higher incidence of permanent visual disability. Written for experienced and not-so-experienced eye surgeons alike to understand and manage PCR.

Cataract is currently the main cause of avoidable blindness in the developing world and accounts for about 75% of cases worldwide. Small incision manual techniques for cataract surgery, as described in this book, should be in the armamentarium of every cataract surgeon, whether it be in the United States or less affluent countries. Phacoemulsification has become the primary method of performing extracapsular cataract surgery, yet it is not always appropriate either from a cost perspective or the density of the cataracts involved. Small incision manual extracapsular techniques, the first choice alternative to phacoemulsification, give visual results equivalent to phacoemulsification at lower cost. Surgeons using this technique regardless of what the latest technology to appear is, are performing state-of-the-art surgery for their patients. Fifty-seven chapters cover all aspects of small incision cataract surgery from lens anatomy to various operative techniques, complications, management and recent advances. It is the first alternative choice to phacoemulsification. Also included are two CD-ROMs to accompany the book.
