We have previously covered the Little Technique to pull backwards to help save a run-out capsulorhexis. This Two Jerky Pulls technique accomplishes the same thing and may be easier and more reliable to perform. When the capsulorhexis has run out to the zonular attachments, two quick jerky pulls can bring it back centrally where control is better and the capsulorhexis can be completed. This video also shows the technique in slow motion. This is a great surgical pearl and I will keep it in my skills toolbox for future use.
We are having another video contest for young surgeons in training. Full details are available at this link here. Your video can be anything original, maximum length of 3 minutes, do a voiceover, do not use copyrighted music in the background, make sure it is actual high definition and in focus, and only one video per surgeon. Deadline for submission is June 1, 2023 and the video competition will be hosted live on June 15, 2023. Full details by clicking the pic below.
