Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery: March 1988 - Volume 14 - Issue 2 - p 149-157 doi: 10.1016/S0886-3350(88)80088-9 Free Metrics Abstract We present a series of nine cases involving primary intraocular lens implantation in congenital cataracts. Because of the problems encountered with the technique used in the earlier cases, we developed a new surgical technique that may be described as primary epilenticular posterior chamber lens implantation followed by pars plana endocapsular lensectomy. This new technique ensures a clear pupillary area, minimizes postoperative complications, and ultimately prevents amblyopia, resulting in useful vision. © Williams & Wilkins 1988. All Rights Reserved.
