Vitrectomy in post cataract extraction endophthalmitis

G. Treister, Y. Glovinski

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Five consecutive cases of advanced stage, endophthalmitis-complicating cataract extraction are described. All cases were treated by vitrectomy, after periocular treatment had failed. Corneal haziness and a tendency toward increased intraocular bleeding created technical operative difficulties. Moderate to severe retinal involvement was observed in all cases. Two out of five eyes were salvaged and regained ambulating and even useful visual acuity.
