Our guest surgeon is Dr. Atul Khadane from Amravati, India and he demonstrates the use of the Assianchor (developed by Ehud Assia MD) to provide capsular support in this traumatic cataract case. The patient has more than 180 degrees of zonular loss and development of a cataract from trauma. This device clips to the edge of the capsulorhexis and provides an eyelet for suture fixation to the sclera. The outcome is good and the technique is excellent. I have not yet used this device, but I look forward to adding it to my surgical toolbox.
