Abstract

Instruments designed for pars plana vitrectomy can be used to manage complicated congenital cataracts such as those with persistent hyperplastic primary vitreous (PHPV). We have applied closed-eye vitrectomy techniques through a limbal approach in seven eyes with PHPV. A clear pupillary space was achieved in all cases. The management of children with complicated congenital cataracts such as PHPV is discussed.
