Abstract Details



Purpose:

In the absence of capsular support, sutured scleral fixated intraocular lens implantation have been performed for many years. We want to report the outcomes and complications of Cow Hitch.

Setting:

Ophthalmology department of La Mancha Centro Hospital, Spain

Methods:

Retrospective interventional case series. Medical records of consecutive patients who had scleral-fixated IOL surgery from January 1, 2013, to December 31, 2015, with more than 1 year of follow-up were retrospectively analyzed. Patients with sub-luxated and dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) were enrolled. The patients with leucoma, non-dilating pupil, macular scar, were not enrolled.

Results:

We enrolled the eyes who completed one year follow-up. There was a significant improvement in uncorrected distance visual acuity after surgery. The complications were corneal edema, hypotony, and uveitis, glaucoma and hyphema síndrome, transient cystoid macular edema were seen.

Conclusions:

The Cow Hitch showed good visual outcome and It is an alternative technique for suturing IOL to the sclera, in eyes with sub-luxated and dislocated IOL.
