ARAGONES CRUZ, Belmary; PILOTO DIAZ, Ibrahín  and  CAPOTE CABRERA, Armando. Management of intraoperative floppy iris syndrome in the cataract surgery. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2007, vol.20, n.2. ISSN 0864-2176.

The intraoperative floppy iris syndrome is characterized by a triad: wave, prolapse of the iris, and progressive miosis. This syndrome can be observed in patients that will undergo cataract surgery, who are carriers of benign prostatic hyperplasia or another pathology treated with systemic alphablockers. If the ophthalmologist is acquainted with this therapy, he/she may design a suitable surgical strategy to reduce complications after surgery.

Keywords : Iris syndrome; intraoperative floppy iris syndrome.
