1444: the patient moved during the rhexis

As I am performing the capsulorhexis, the patient unexpectedly moved and there is a run-out of the capsule tear. The patient has already received intra-venous sedation of midazolam and alfentanil from the anesthesiologist. The patient’s head is taped in place and the surgeon is experienced, but this type of minor complication can still happen. The key here is to react quickly and then to recover by performing the Little rescue technique and then completing the capsulorhexis. Complications, due to patient movement or less than ideal cooperation, happen to all surgeons from time to time. This video shows you how to recover from this.
