Abstract

Our aim was to determine the rate of intraoperative complications induced by Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome (PSX) and RACR (Radial Adhesive Cortical Residues) in cataract surgery. We have called RACR an intraoperatively identified condition marked by the adhesion of radial cortical residues to the capsular equator and by a considerable thinning of the central portion of the posterior capsule. We report our data regarding 1052 consecutive patients who underwent phacoemulsification. Odds ratios for intraoperative complications (vitreous loss, capsular break, zonular break) were estimated to be 2.6 for RACR present as compared to when it is absent and 4.3 for PSX present as compared to when it is absent. PSX was associated with a statistically significant increase in intraoperative complications during cataract surgery (p <0.0001). A smaller but still statistically significant increase occurred when RACR was present (p <0.015).
