Resumen

MONTERO DIAZ, Eric et al. Results of the multiple intraocular lenses implantation in the cataract surgery performed at "Ramón Pando Ferrer" Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.1, pp.78-87. ISSN 0864-2176.

OBJECTIVE: To asses the visual results of patients operated on by piggy back technique or multiple implantation of intraocular lenses METHODS: A retrospective cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted in 32 eyes from 30 patients operated on from cataract, using the above-mentioned technique, at "Ramon Pando Ferrer" Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology in the period January 2000 through December 2006. Some demographic variables as age and sex as well as visual acuity and preoperative and postoperative refraction with/without lenses were evaluated. Trans-surgical and post-surgical complications associated with the various surgical techniques for the crystalline extraction were reported. RESULTS: Average age was 50 years, being the females predominant. One part of the patients had corrected visual acuity over 20/40. The most frequent complication was posterior capsule opacity and only one third of patients showed good refractive correction. CONCLUSIONS: Piggy back technique allowed recovering four lines in corrected visual acuity in Snellen´s chart whereas uncorrected visual acuity increased two lines only. The number of hypocorrected and well-corrected patients was the same.

Palabras clave : Piggy back; refractive surprise; spheral equivalent.
