1834: phaco-section and then extraction

We have previously featured this technique (and this guest surgeon) which shows the phaco-section technique. In this case, using a 27g bent needle (cystitome) to split the nucleus in the anterior chamber and then extract each hemi-nucleus. This is like the MSICS procedure but because the nucleus is split in half, the incision size can be significantly smaller. Have you tried this technique? Please leave a comment below with your experience and your best surgical pearls.
