The treatment of postoperative hyphema by cyclodiathermy

Michael Lieppman, Morton F. Goldberg

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Penetrating cyclodiathermy, a technique first used for glaucoma, is presented as a means of controlling continuous, intermittent, or recurrent postoperative hyphema. A case is reported in which cyclodiathermy was successfully used to stop recurrent hemorrhage following cataract surgery. Details of the procedure are described. Causes of postoperative hyphema are discussed, and the advantages of penetrating cyclodiathermy over other forms of treatment are considered.
