The possible use of reclination in current surgery of cataract (Russian)
In a clinical case series (36 cases), it was shown that the operation of reclination is feasible in cases where extraction of the cataract is contraindicated. Patients with severe disorders of the cardiovascular system, mental disorders, diseases of the blood, lack of corneal sensitivity, and earlier loss of one eye because of neuroparalytic keratitis following extraction of a cataract, etc. were operated upon. After reclination, the visual acuity was from 0.7 to 1.0 in 24 patients, 0.5 in 6 patients and below 0.5 in 6 patients. Observation periods ranged up to 1 yr 6 mth.
