Pars Plana Lensectomy All In: In the Bag and In the Vit

6: 45, Yannek I. Leiderman, MD, PhD


Luxation of the cataractous crystalline lens, in its entirety or in part following complicated cataract surgery, is most commonly addressed by pars plana vitrectomy in conjunction with pars plana lensectomy (PPL) performed via phacofragmatome. This video illustrates PPL performed with a phacoemulsification needle using torsional emulsification via a 20 gauge sclerotomy, allowing for predominantly in-the-bag PPL of a luxated lens in the mid-vitreous.
