Fibrin precipitation after surgery in patients without systemic or ocular disease was markedly less when diclofenac sodium ophthalmic solution was used in combination with topical corticosteroids. There was also a reduction in fibrin precipitation in other patients, especially in those with diabetes mellitus, primary angle-closure glaucoma, and exfoliation syndrome. In conclusion, diclofenac sodium was shown to be clinically useful as a topical preparation to suppress inflammation after cataract surgery. © Williams & Wilkins 1995. All Rights Reserved.
