1817: My Week: How do I get the nucleus up?

Many readers have asked for pearls in getting the nucleus up, part way out of the capsular bag, and in the iris plane so that the pupil holds the cataract. This allows easier access to remove the nucleus and also keeps the iris away from the phaco tip. This video shows how I use the 27g cannula to rock the nucleus and bring it up. A great surgical pearl that you should learn.

    1. Sir ,
      In case of Dense Nuclear sclerosis , using same method ,
      After doing first chop , is it better to push the heminucleus again in capsular bag ?
      After that complete the phaco as we routinely do.
      It will reduce risk of corneal endothelial damage?
