The American Academy of Ophthalmology chooses an article by Dr. Jürgens and Dr. Rey as one of the highlighted articles of the month

Every month, the American Academy of Ophthalmology choses five articles considered relevant among articles on ophthalmology published worldwide.

This month, the association has chosen an article written by Dr. Ignasi Jürgens, Medical Director at Institut Català de Retina, and Dr. Amanda Rey, which was published at Retina, The Journal of Retinal and Vitreous Diseases under the name Surgical outcome of late in-the-bag intraocular lens dislocation treated with pars plana vitrectomy. Dr. Agnieszka Dyrda and Dr. Xavier Maseras, both ophthalmologists at ICR, also took part on the study.

Aim of the article Surgical outcome of late in-the-bag intraocular lens dislocation treated with pars plana vitrectomy

The aim of the article was to present and compare visual results and postoperative complications of pars plana vitrectomy and intraocular lenses (IOL) removal with or without IOL exchange of late in-the-bag IOL dislocation after an uneventful cataract surgery.

The results of the study showed that the major predisposing factor for late in-the-bag IOL dislocation is high myopia. Although the complication rate of this procedure, mostly minor and transient, is of 43 %, IOL exchange surgery is an effective procedure with good visual results (an improvement of a mean 3 Snellen lines) and best corrected visual acuity improved substantially whether IOL was placed in the anterior chamber or in posterior chamber with transcleral suture-fixation. Therefore, both techniques can be considered for the treatment of this condition.

The inclusion of this article in the American Academy of Ophthalmology monthly communication acknowledges the general interest of this content and disseminates it on a large scale, as it is received by ophthalmologists around the globe.
