Phacoemulsification permits the removal of Cataract through a relatively small incision, by a combination of emulsification and aspiration. This two-volume video film on nuclear procedures presents the basic and advanced techniques of nuclear emulsification for different types of cataract. You will learn to handle soft, moderate, hard and white cataracts. The ‘Shell Technique’, recently described by Dr Aasuri to manage the hard nucleus, is also demonstrated. The steps are shown as animation for better understanding.

Year of Publication: March 2008
With advances in technology, phacoemulsification has now become the preferred method of cataract surgery. But on this route, surgeons are faced with new challenges regarding certain situations like deep set eyes, shallow AC, small pupil, subluxated cataracts, harder cataracts, post-vitrectomy eyes etc. This video deals with one such difficult situation-a small pupil. Various methods described in literature are reviewed and the use of iris retractors is demonstrated vividly with the aid of animations for critical steps. It brings to the forefront the difficulties encountered during phacoemulsification in such a scenario and proceeds to give valuable practical tips to overcome the same.
