IOL exchange for transscleral-sutured PCIOL and McCannel suture iris repair
This patient developed pseudophakic corneal edema with an anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) in place. A plan was made to perform Descemet membrane endothelial keratoplasty (DMEK), but the patient first underwent IOL exchange for a transscleral-sutured posterior chamber IOL using an Alcon CZ70BD lens and 9-0 Prolene suture. Repair of his large superior peripheral iridotomy was also performed in preparation for the DMEK using a McCannel suture technique. This patient was already vitrectomized, otherwise an anterior vitrectomy would need to be performed prior to IOL insertion.
