1257: OSN NY Challenges with Akinesia

This talk is one of my lectures from the OSN NY 2021 meeting. This is the Ocular Surgery News meeting in New York City and I am giving this lecture live and at the same time releasing the annotated video here on CataractCoach. Anyone who enjoys my lecture live and in-person can also re-watch it any time and anywhere. I think that is the future of our in-person meetings and lectures: the ability to share with our colleagues from around the world via video streaming.

This video is for the challenging cases section and it highlights one of the toughest cases of my 20+ year career. This patient has normal ocular tissues, good zonular support, and even good dilation. What makes it so challenging is that she is unable to control her drastic head movements and due to her systemic medical conditions, she cannot have heavier sedation or deeper anesthesia.
