Which surgical approach is better for late in-the-bag IOL dislocation?

Posted on

Intraocular inflammation levels were similar after intraocular lens (IOL) repositioning and IOL exchange in patients with late in-the-bag IOL dislocation, according to a study.

In this prospective, randomized, parallel-group clinical trial, 100 patients (100 eyes) with late in-the-bag IOL dislocation were randomly assigned into IOL repositioning by scleral suturing (n = 49) or IOL exchange with retropupillary fixation of an iris-claw lens (n = 51).

At 2-weeks post-operation, the median flare values were 28.9 pc/ms and 31.6 pc/ms in the repositioning group and the exchange group, respectively.

After 6 weeks, flare levels were still similarly elevated in both groups but decreased to baseline levels after 6 months. Central retinal thickness was similar in both groups at 6 weeks.

In the IOL repositioning group, cystoid macular edema (CME) was found in 4 patients and the mean best-corrected visual acuity was 0.17 logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution. In the IOL exchange CME was found in 5 patients and the mean best-corrected visual acuity was 0.21 logarithm of the minimum angle of resolution.
